FINALLY: Barack Obama To Return To Public Life

Hide your dogs, people. He’s back!

Michael D. Shear, NYT:

Barack Obama’s extended post-presidential vacation is about to end. After spending weeks in French Polynesia — including time on the yacht of the movie mogul David Geffen along with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey — Mr. Obama will return to Chicago on Monday for his first public event as a former president…

A Monday town hall-style meeting with students at the University of Chicago will be followed by an awards ceremony in Boston; a series of public remarks as well as private paid speeches in the United States and Europe; and an appearance at the Brandenburg Gate in Germany with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Man, I’ve really missed that guy. Haven’t you? I can’t wait to be scolded some more about how terrible I am, and then called a racist if I dare to reply. That’s what America needs right now.

Obama has burned down the Democratic Party, and now he’s coming back to dance through the ashes. If he and his adherents can’t learn from their mistakes, who are we to tell them differently?

Take your victory lap, Barry. You did it!
