Just on the company blog, though. Rest assured, for wire stories they put their Serious Journalist caps on.
Barack Obama may be the first U.S. president who can successfully pull off the shaka, a Hawaiian greeting Hawaiians say has various meanings, from “hang loose” and “cool” to “thanks.”…
The president-elect, looking uber-cool with his White Sox baseball cap on backwards, flipped the shaka to a crowd of about 30 people as he left a gym on a Marine Corps base on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, where he is vacationing.
Does he really need the hat to attain uber-coolness? Being married to a “goddess” should be enough. And hey, nothing says
creepy hip like a president who hits the gym every morning. Exit question: What other fashion conventions that have been passe for, oh, at least 20 years are we about to learn are “uber-cool”? Obama should start wearing skinny ties just to dare the press to call him outmoded.
