I can't hear the Beatles over the sounds of the cicadas.

Didn't there used to be a band called The Beatles?

Or am I just making that up?

I prefer the term Obamarama.

Obamageddon is clearly the superior term.

Point conceded.

I thought you meant this Beatlemania.

Obamarama or Obamapalooza, IMO.

The former has the advantage of being pronounced "Obamarama-ding-dong!"
