Boy Howdy! Barack Obama’s Tropic Thunder

When Bugs Cry    Obama9

Indonesians of all ages turn out to see a splendid new statue commemorating Barack Obama’s brief childhood sojourn in the capitol Jakarta.
The BBC has locals hero worshiping Barack In Bronze, but the Jakarta Globe talked to a less happy resident.

Raditya Ayu speaks for youth:

I think people should make a statue of someone if that person has done something for the people. And I don’t think Obama has done anything for Indonesia. …I think they should have erected a statue of SBY [Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono] here, or even a statue of Michael Jackson. If you travel to a place where there is no TV, I’m sure you will find that people will still know him [Jackson]. He is really great.


Pre-Presidential knees in representational art have proud precedence of course in the Michigan Boy Scouts stirring tribute to local Eagle Gerry Ford.
