Like Flies on #2

Today a lot of noise has been made concerning Obama's strange ability to attract bugs and rodents. Apparently, he has been swarmed by flies, bees, and even rushed by a rat. Many of the more colorful interpretations of these event suggest that this is due to Obama being the Lord of the Flies. I'm not too sure about that. I might agree to the idea that he's a golem, an animated creature made from the corpses of a dozen men, whose slowly rotting flesh attracts these critters. But a demon? No way.

I think that this peculiarity has more to do with the natural inclinations of the pests in question. Flies recognize, and are attracted to, the smell of...let's just say animal waste. So, it should not surprise anyone that such critters would swarm around someone who his so full of B.S.
