Instapundit links to a post by Walter Shapiro suggesting Barack Obama wrote himself into the presidents’ job.
His memoirs are an impressive piece of writing, and he has certainly done nothing else that would qualify him for the job – he’s never had a steady job (half a single term as a junior state senator doesn’t count – half because for most of the second part of his term he was campaigning for another job altogether). He has never run an organisation of any size – actually never run anything at all. So yes, Shapiro is probably right. Obama wrote himself into the job.
The only problem is, it is now almost certain his “memoirs” were not written by him, but by unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers. Here and here for more detail. So the truth of the matter is: Bill Ayers wrote Obama into the presidency.
