Is Obama a floating ship or dry land?

Robert Laity of western New York writes in with this essay on our president-elect:

Obama’s a derelict

Robert’s been a busy bee around the internet posting this observation.

Buffalo Topix:

Barack is a derelict and now he’s “Present” Obama.Armadinijahed Loves him.


Obama is a derelict who advocates letting survivors of the “Holocaust” of abortion die in the abortion clinic,on their own,without medical intervention.


Obama “honest”, no. Obama honorable,no. Obama a derelict,yes.

I’m trying to figure out what it could mean for Barack Obama to be a “derelict.” Is he a ship floating on the water, abandoned by his captain? Is he a spot of high land bereft of well water? Is he homeless?

I personally prefer the ship option, because it keeps open the possibility that Barack Obama might contain a bottle of rum, or perhaps some doubloons.

    He’s conflating derelict as a noun referring to the Skid Row type with derelict as a verb referring to neglect, as in derelict in duty. It’s an attempt to be clever by blurring distinctions between two meanings, so that both are applicable.

    No! He’s referring to an empty ship with rum and doubloons! And it’s all mine! Miiiiine!


    Yeah, you’re probably right. But Obama, Skid Row?

    I’m sure there’s a floating hulk somewhere out there with a full store of rum, lots of oranges, and a fitted kitchen. But it’s not the one Laity thinks he’s spotted.

    What’s with these Communist traitors? Don’t they know not to question the US President-to-be’s authority?

    Or does treating him like a god not start until Bush has stepped down from the throne?
