Obama Accepts Shirt Off Woman’s Back

  While visiting Independence, Missouri, this Independence week, Senator Obama had a new ‘experience’. 

Obama had decided to take a stroll down one of Independence’s quiet streets after a speech about patriotism. It’s not often that you see a Presidential candidate strolling down any street. 

While moseying down Main Street, Independence, several people welcomed him onto the porches of their bungalows and shouted at him politely and enthusiastically as they gathered in small crowds to see him.

He obliged nearly everyone who wanted to shake his hand.

Then he met Tootie Williams.

Tootie, a native of St. Louis was wearing an oversized white T-shirt with a picture of Obama and it said: “Obama’s in the House.”

Obama said he loved it. So Williams said she’d give it to him and started to peel it off.

Folks started laughing but there was also a look of concern on Obama’s face even after Tootie assured him she had on another shirt underneath — which she did.

As she struggled to remove the T-shirt with a mob of reporters and cameras looking on, he warned “Hold the rest of it down!”
