Barak's Campaign-" There is a little weevil in it"

"...Us deciding that we’re going to come together to bring about real change in America.."

"..doesn’t look like all the presidents on the dollar bills and the five dollar bills ."

Will "we're going to come together" replace Benjamin Franklin on the hundred with Ben Hogan on the 17th? Or Benjamin Kubelsky, on his 39th?

Shall "we're going to come together" replace Alexander Hamilton on the tenner with Alexander Graham Bell on hold? Alexander the Great changing the saddle on Bucephalus?

How 'bout "we're going to come together" and replacing U.S. Grant on the $50 with Grant's Tomb? Or replace the fifty entirely with graphic novels copies of James Joyce Ulysses?

Maybe if "we're going to come together" could get it together enough, FDR could be moved to the one cent piece, and a two cent coin struck for Lincoln. Rename the dime the "Brother can you spare a" and engrave thereon the image of a grandmotherly "...typical white person" and "Rich!! White!!! People!!!!!" groveling perpetually in obesiance to Jim on the raft, Pocahontas, Sacajewea, and Harriet Tubman as they land on the moon and emerge from the Eagle.

"There's a little weevil in it". Hint, Sojourner Truth won't make the cut of "we're goin' to come tah-gether"
