Barack Obama, The One, waited three days before going to his sick Grandmother's deathbed. Why? Perhaps like that other Community Organizer, Obama wanted to heighten the drama by waiting until Grandma is in the tomb. Talk about the ultimate photo op, "Grandma, you old racist defense plant employee, COME FORTH!" Now that is what I call an October Surprise.
But imagine the disappointment among Obama's supporters if Obama merely sits at Grandma's side, holding her hand, talking and praying with her until the end, like a mere mortal; they'll be as stunned as King Canute's courtiers. Not to worry though, when Grandma dies I'm sure Obama can change the subject, after all there must be some way to blame Bush.
