From day one, Obama has gone out of his way to offend the British. Suciô suspects that over the years Obama built up a personal myth of familial resistance to colonial oppression. He seems to have co-opted much of Caroline Elkins' bogus work on the Mau Mau uprising in order to inflate his narrative. After all, if a ditzy blond can black-up enough to snag a Harvard chair, why shouldn't the story embellish the credentials of a privileged community organizer? Stolen valor for professional race-baiters?
