Thieves Target Barack Obama's Step-Grandmother, Try To Steal Her Solar Panels

Don’t go messin’ with Obama’s step-grandmother!

The 86-year-old woke up early Wednesday morning in her village in Kenya to the sound of people stomping around on her roof attempting to rip up her solar panels. Along with some other relatives, she then chased the thieves down the street.

The country has been engulfed in Obama fever ever since the American politician announced his candidacy for president. Due to Ms. Obama’s relation to Barack, many assume that she is rich — even though she wears ripped dresses and lives in a bare, little tin-roofed house. Police are now patrolling her home around the clock.

The solar panels were a gift from a Kenyan airline executive, who gave them to her — along with a television — so that she could follow the election news. Amazingly enough, the village she lives in has absolutely no electricity.

I want to reflect on that for one second. Barack Obama — a politician running on the democratic ticket for President of the United States of America — has a step-grandmother that lives in Kenya. In a small shack of a home. In a village that has no electricity.

Say what you will about all that’s wrong with this country, but it’s truly wonderful to also remember that which makes us great. How far indeed the Obama name has come in so short a period of time.
