I did a post on this previously but only those old enough to remember the show would understand the post. Let me explain the show for those either too young to have seen it or those who don’t remember it.
A moderator introduces a mystery guest and explains his occupation or specific talent. For Barack it would be, “I am Senator Barack Obama from Illinois and I am running for president of the United States.
The moderator would tell a little about the mystery contestant and three persons would each claim to be Barack Obama … making the statement above.
A panel of three or four celebrities would ask the three contestants questions then, at the end, try to guess who was the real person … not the two impostors.
In Barack’s game, he would alternately sit in all three chairs.
In chair #1, he would be Barack the liberal who maintained a far left position during the Democratic primary season that was unassailable by Hillary Clinton.
In chair #2, he would be the current Barack Obama, the general primary candidate who is giving John McCain a run for his money as the most centrist candidate in the history of the country.
In chair #3 would be Barack the Unknown, the Barack that no one really knows and is afraid to ask about. Except on this show, the panelists get to ask him questions. His answers will be, “I can’t tell you.”. I won’t tell you.” , “It’s a secret.” or “Wait until after the election is over.”
I don’t know why #3 is being so evasive because it perfectly all right for the impostors to lie. I think even the real person could lie. Barack should feel completely comfortable with this.
Anyway, that’s the game set up. Barack plays musical chairs catering to differing interests but universally his own and continues to hide the true nature of himself. Or does he?
