Kerry Knudsen, a curator at the UC Riverside Herbarium, names a new species of tough, orange-colored lichen, Caloplaca obamae, after the 44th president.Oh Ho...it fits...
1. One of the few classifications on the planet that can grow in very hostile conditions...hence, they are EXTREMIST.I like it...President Obama is, indeed, a lichen.
2. A significant number of lichen species can be considered purely parasitic...you know...like those individuals who signed a legal document to pay a mortgage knowing that there was no chance in hell of them fulfilling the contract...thus requiring the Obama Administration the opportunity to promote a parasitic relationship where these same individuals can live off the resources of the rest of us. Parasitism with a capital "P."
3. Most lichens reproduce via meiosis. The spores of the fungus (lets call Obama and his Socialistic tendencies a fungus...shall we?) meet up with the algal partner (why not refer to the zombietype Obama supporters and the appeasing Democrat heavy Congress as the algae...OK?) and *PRESTO*...more useless crevace cracking monument damaging lichens.
