A squirrel we can believe in!

While walking through the National Zoo, a 30ish black man and his family:

"Hey check that out! It's a black squirrel!"
"Yo! It's an Obama squirrel!"

[Unrelated side note: Check out the new link in our sidebar. It's for First Book's campaign "What Book Got you Hooked?"
Basically, First Book is inviting readers (and you eavesdroppers) everywhere to name the first book from childhood that made reading fun. Those who submit what book got them hooked on the website then vote for any state of their choice to receive 50,000 new books for low-income youth. Some come on; do some good for the DC/MD/VA schools and submit your book and vote!]

You gotta admit, that is most definitely funny. And hey, the squirrel might do a fine job in the White House, in his own right, provided he didn't gnaw on any wires!

To jess: Maybe he's not from DC, black squirrels arent very common in the rest of the country.
