Obama and friends frolicing to Tiny Tim.

Both light in the loafers. Oops, did I say that?
This is one of your best, but the cozy couch pic and the one of him hanging the curtain were absent!
Standing and applauding!
"Tiny Tim" performs "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In:
The second time I went out to California to attend Mohammad Hassan Chandoos graduation from Occidental College, Obama was enjoying the lavish lifestyle being financed by his friend and roommate at the time - Hassan Chandoo. The wealthy patron provided Obama access to big houses, lavish parties & had him dressed in the slickest clothes. I could have sworn they were both Gay & wealthy.
Those were some of the initial observations by Dr. John C. Drew, PhD, on his second encounter with Barack Obama who was attending Occidental College at the time. ..."
P.S. Thanks for the Tiny Tim time warp! I had forgotten how entertaining and delightful his voice and songs were. I’m over at iTunes now. :)
I'm almost afraid to ask: you are being sarc, right?
Will the $250 million Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library and Choom Gang Museum be located in Hawaii, Cali, or Chicago?
That was great! I remember Tiny Tim and Laugh In! Didn’t Tim marry a woman, what am I remembering? Maybe some other nut case not Tim.
Tiny got married on the Johnny Carson show as I recall.
Love it! Thank you so much!

No, not at all. Spend some time listening. There’s much more to his voice than that famous (infamous) falsetto.
Here’s an interesting interview (the horrid haircut of the interviewer notwithstanding). TT was a very intelligent, talented man.
He married three times. Yes, three women.
>>Didnt Tim marry a woman
“On December 17, 1969, with 21.4 million viewers watching, Tiny Tim married Victoria Mae Budinger (aka “Miss Vicki”) on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. During their marriage, Tiny Tim and Miss Vicki mostly lived apart, and divorced eight years later. When Tiny Tim first became well-known to the American public, pundits and journalists debated whether or not this character being presented was just an orchestrated act, or the real thing.”
About a year or so ago my brother sent me a youtube of “Tim” singing other types of songs in a much more normal voice. They actually weren’t bad. But I don’t think I’ll be joining the Tiny Tim Fan Club anytime soon, as entertaining as he certainly was. :)
He and Andy Kaufman were very similar types of showmen. I'd bet Kaufman was hugely inspired by 'Tim'.
...you never knew with absolute certainty whether they were putting the audience on or not, at least at the time. I recall my father being totally convinced that Andy Kaufman was for real. Then again, he also thought pro-wrestling was for real.
Once again; I can recall no political figure, short of Barney Frank, who has been a greater embarrassment to their country than this POS.
Whoops, just spent more time on youtube, watching the Latka’s Cookies Taxi episode, lol.
Here’s a Tiny Tim obit with a lot of good background info:
A vaudevillian misplaced in time, seems like. He often sounded like Al Jolson.
