WASHINGTON (SR) - First Lady Michelle Obama struck a religious theme yesterday, thanking supporters for keeping "the spirits clean" around her and Barack.
"It means the world to us to know that there are prayer circles and people who want to keep the spirits clean around us," Mrs. Obama told fawning radio show host, Tom Joyner, by phone.
Apparently encouraged by Joyner's enthusiastic response, the First Lady unexpectedly started speaking in what a White House spokesperson later referred to as "holy tongues."
The following is a transcript of Mrs. Obama's remaining comments: "Oh shambalooa, shambalooa robbalooie, Oh bonka shamashama booie lama. Barry, barry bo arry, bonana fanna fo farry, fee fy mo marry, barry! Oompa loompa ping pang paddiwak, give da dog a bone. Oh shama lama bing bong bootie, rama dama rooty tootie, oh great Baal I beseech ye."
The phone connection was lost as Mrs. Obama began grunting in what sounded like a man's baritone voice.
My comments: Wow, you know it's election time when the Obamas suddenly trot out their deep spirituality!
