Mama Mia: The Obamarama Baby Boom

According to University of Washington sociologist Pepper Schwartz, Obamaphrodisiacal desire will engender a boom in special deliveries right around back-to-school time next year. "Hope and euphoria . . . are a serious aphrodisiac. And voters under 30 went for Obama by a margin of two to one. When you combine those two elements — randy people of child-bearing age — the likely result is what the online Urban Dictionary has already dubbed 'Obama Babies': children conceived after Obama was proclaimed President, by way of celebratory sex."

The theory, notes Newsweek's Jessica Bennett, is almost too perfect to be true. Barack Obama, the son of politically progressive parents, was born 4 August 1961 (almost nine months to the day after John F. Kennedy was elected to the White House). Is it possible Obama was conceived on that historic night?

Man-oh-Mamma, one guy actually voted for Obama solely because he wanted to tell his bundle of joy s/he was conceived on this historic occasion. Talk sargasmic sardiculousness! (No doubt the child's name will be Barack or Baracka; but, I'd vote yay to Obama, if only because it works well for both genders; plus, the potential for neologisms increases exponentially: When Baracka's misbehaving, she's gone Obamaniacal; but, when he's good, he's an Obamaestro.)
