Dear Lord -
This year you took my favorite actor, Patrick Swayzie.
You took my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett.
You took my favorite singer, Michael Jackson.
I just wanted to let you know my favorite President is Barack Obama.
Seriously, if he does pass (no great loss edit. to the body politic; I am sure he has friends and family who would miss him, and did he not hold elective office, he would be essentially harmless despite his beliefs...and he'd probably even be a pleasant, if deeply misguided, conversationalist), may it be in some fashion that is utterly and undeniably of natural causes - and may the good Lord protect us all from the likes of Biden and Pelosi.
