Title: The Obamadammerung Author: Random Acts of Shark Rating: T/M Genre: Action/Humor Status: Complete Fandom: American Political Satire Pairings: None Summary: No summary given, but "the 2008 election, but steampunk and as an epic." Link: http://randomactsofshark.blogspot.com/2008/11/table-of-contents.html With the end of Obama's eight years coming up, I think it's instructive to dredge this old work back up. It's amazing to see a vision of Obama's 2008 campaign - before the cynicism, before PRISM and Snowden and drone strikes and all the other disappointments of the Administration. The piece is well crafted, a hilarious send-up of the 2008 election, but hindsight only makes it better - we know how it ends, and it doesn't end well. But we remember how we felt then, and wish it were so.
