Ukuleleists for Obama

Ukulele enthusiasts may wonder what it means for us that so prominent a figure as Mr. O grew up in Hawai’i, the homeland of the instrument.  Did he play it when he was young?  No- but this very year, he was seen taking a ukulele lesson from virtuoso Abe Lagrimas, Junior

According to ukulelehunt, the web is now crawling with people strumming the ukulele to show their support for his campaign.  Ukelilli is an example. 

From ukulelia, a short film about “Ukes for Obama” with a couple of songs, including their anthem, “Aloha Mama, I’m Voting for Obama.”

Knowing where most of you stand politically, I will mention only down here that the Bushes all play the ukulele.   So keep up those lessons, Mr. O!  We’re counting on you to redeem the jumping flea!
