It Just Became Marginally Harder For Lepers to Get Obama to Cure Them With His Touch
Barry Hussein Obama today became the earliest Presidential candidate ever to be placed under Secret Service protection. Michael Chertoff authorized it himself, as he's a fan of grim foreshadowing, and recently saw Bobby.
Obama is getting his protection nine months earlier than Kerry and Edwards got theirs in 2004, and Hillary, as a former First Lady, already has a Secret Service detail. John Edwards has elected to spend a couple thousand dollars of campaign cash on impeccably-groomed occasional male models to serve as his security staff.
