Obama fried chicken for lunch

April 6, 2009

Although his approval rating isn’t as high as when he assumed the presidency, the first Afro-American US president is still very popular. Barack Obama mania still rages as one can see in a fried chicken store in New York City.

According to New York Daily News, at least two fried chicken joints have baptized themselves as Obama Fried Chicken. They are probably just riding on the popularity of the president and many are buying.

Obama’s remarkable following is part of what writer political commentator Bernard Goldman described as “a slobbering love affair” of the media that has seeped into the psyche of the ordinary American citizen. The ripple effect of this adulation will reverberate internationally and it will take some time before is stops to a halt. (Photo Credit: Rob Bennett, NY Times/Redux, New York Daily News) =0=
