UPDATED: Chicago Awarded Obama Presidential Library – And They Might Pick My Design
Anonymous sources are reporting the Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Presidential Library (“The Liebarry”) will in fact be located in the great city of Chicago Illinois.
This is encouraging news for yours truly, as I long ago submitted my entry in the Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Presidential Library Conceptual Design Contest. Figuring it couldn’t hurt, I claimed to be a one-legged lesbian refugee from Somalia with a Masters in Architecture and a Doctorate in Urban Planning and Critical Race Theory. I also attached a photo of my mutilated genitalia (not pictured here) to solidify my standing as a member of the Oppressed. And I chose Chicago Illinois as the location!
And the Design…well, judge for yourselves but I believe it perfectly encapsulates and reflects the very essence of the Age of Obama. The entrance itself evokes thoughts of his various policies and the results of enacting them ‘by hook or crook’. Some may be reminded of the President’s love for golf. Or Reggie Love. Maybe they’ll think of government
making payoffs to their donors investments in failed ventures like Solyndra and the State Department. Or Obamacare, or America’s current economic state or gutting the military or immigration or something.
Of course these things are seldom chosen based on the obvious and irrefutable merits of the design. Politics typically plays a prominent role and that’s why I cheated. It’s out of my hands now, so I guess we’ll see.
UPDATE: Still under construction and currently closed to the public, a key feature of the Obama Monument is the Great Hall of Nothing. Carved from the solid rock, it will run almost 80 feet through the head, with windows at each ear providing spectacular views and cooling, natural breezes. Events scheduled upon the Hall’s completion include concerts, art shows, guest lectures, food and wine tastings, conferences and exhibitions of every lunatic lefty issue they can dream up.
FINAL UPDATE: And finally, as a bonus for my readers, the following is a grab from the original presentation where I had included (at the Vice President’s specific request) a carnival ride atop the Monument, Vegas-style. I had to remove it from the final submission as computer models consistently showed an unacceptable level of cumulative fatalities during the period when Obama would still be in office. As such we’ve pushed off installation of this essential revenue-generator until the Fall of 2016.
