Starting in 2009, Alabama’s Perry County will implement “Barack Obama Day” on the second Monday of November.
President-Elect Barack Obama has yet to be inaugurated, yet citizens continue to act as if he walks on water. I can understand why the people want to celebrate the election of the first black president, but it’s a little ridiculous to keep overestimating Obama, especially since he isn’t officially the president yet. Why are most people under the impression that he is going to do such an incredible job as president that he is already worthy of a holiday? This Alabama County has spoken too soon, and it’s embarrassing.
