President Kar?

President Barack Obama ducks his head to get through an entranceway on a tour of the Pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt, June 4, 2009.

Dr. Zahi Hawass: This is a tomb dated four thousand 600 years ago. And the person who is back here, his name is Kar. His name is written in hyroglypic and it looks like Kar.

Obama: That looks like me! Look at those ears.

[He even brought Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and Senior Counselor David Axelrod over to show them the resemblance.]

Obama to Gibbs and Axelrod: I want to show you something.

Dr. Zahi Hawass: Mister President, you look like King Tut. It’s true. I said this the whole time – two years ago. You were a king in ancient Egypt.

and according to Rasta Livewire:

The name of the ancient Egyptian dignitary was Kar. One must note here that spelt backwards Barack comes up as “Karba” (omitting the “c” which is just a variation of the spelling convention). “Karba” does sound very close to “Kar” the man buried in the Egyptian tomb.

Kar lived about 4,600 years ago in ancient Egypt. Kar was a great and devoted Black African (Khemitian) who served one of the Pharaohs of Egypt. Just like President Barack, Father Kar was a priest, a scholar, and an advocate. He later became a great judge.

Truth really is stranger than fiction. Barack backwards is Karab, actually, sounds a bit like "scarab"? Have a great visit to the Hull mouth!

Thank you Michael! Hull Mouth...great one!

The cult of Obama is pretty fascinating. I'm not sure why people get so jazzed about having new Pharaohs though...ultimately I think people enjoy being ruled by an elite...sad really.

Oh well...I'm off to the beach.
