Dwayne Kennedy on President Obama at The Lincoln Lodge, Chicago

Dwayne Kennedy is a great talent. He’s from here in Chicago, but he’s been in L.A. for several years trying to make it work. He can make race issues the funniest thing in the world.

Lincoln Lodge is one of the oldest running underground comedy rooms in the city. Lots of times, national talent will get time there to work on material. If you’re ever in Chicago, put it on your itinerary.

Yes, Obama and his administration played a little spoil the well trump card. It’s hard to demonize military effort when decisions are presented in front of our country’s future armed elite. It’s kind of like that time Bush made that victory speech May 1, 2003.

Hopefully whoever is driving the car with Obama’s bobble head bobbing around on its dashboard, will read this letter too, hear the fucking chorus of dissent and stop this madness.
