Obama seeks Hanuman’s blessing
New York, June 09, 2008
It’s unusual. But, it’s a fact. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic party’s presidential nominee, is seeking the blessings of Hindu god Hanuman in his battle for the White House.
The 46-year-old senator from Illinois, who defeated his rival Hillary Clinton in an epic 17-month long battle for Democratic party nomination, carries a “tiny monkey god” apparently representing “Hanuman” with him for good luck.
A recent photo posted on Time’s White House Photo of the Day collection shows ... a gambler’s lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and tiny Madonna and child.
That “tiny monkey god,” of course, appears to be a statue of the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman, says the posting but editors and the photographer has not identified it as such.
McCain carries a tiny rhinoceros.
Chris Christie carries a tiny hippo.
Boehner carries a tiny bull elephant with no (tusks).
Hillary carries a tiny rattlesnake.
Pelosi carries a tiny plastic sturgeon (oops, I mean surgeon).
Where’s Obama’s monkey god now?
Hopping around and waving a hand grenade.
