Perhaps it was a pocket edition of the US Constitution for him to read.

It seems the bloom, as the say, is off the rose.
File this under news the lamestream media will give little or no coverage to.
From the U.K.'s Daily Mail Online:
This is the astonishing moment a book was apparently hurled at the head of U.S. President Barack Obama during a campaign rally in Philadelphia.
The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the President yesterday.
It is not clear what the book was, where it came from in the crowd, or why it was thrown at Mr Obama - who did not appear to notice the danger.
But it is expected that there will be fallout from the security breach as the Secret Service investigates how close the President came to danger.
The rally was clearly an eventful one - other images showed a naked man being led away in handcuffs by police.
It is not clear if the man was involved in the book-throwing incident - or why he was not wearing any clothes.
You can read the rest of the Mail’s coverage here.
Here's video of the incident courtesy of Gateway Pundit, where you can read more here.
You can see the "flying missile" about 24 seconds into the short video. The Daily Caller has more video, and commentary here.
I know it would be easy to insert a joke right about now, much like our friends on the left did when a shoe was thrown at George W. Bush in Iraq. But this is actually a serious incident, and points to some failing by security.
Glenn Beck, and many others are absolutely convinced that Barack Obama’s life is in danger, not from someone on the right, but from a radical left winger, not satisfied with Obama’s slowness in implementing the full on Communist Utopia these freaks dream of.
Knowing the type of sixties radicals, and their protégés, who circle within and around the Obama regime, Obama's safety, is indeed in question.
These are the same sort, who as Stacy Drake reported, threatened the life of Sarah Palin in San Diego, California at an event honoring combat veterans on Saturday, which you can read more about here.
I was young during the 1960s, but many of the same violent radicals who wanted America destroyed back then, grew up, bathed, put on suits, and became part of the very establishment they wanted destroyed.
Many like murdering domestic terrorist William Ayers, and his cop killing wife, Bernardine Dohrn, became "respected members of academia" as well as close personal friends of Barack Obama.
Ayers, who founded the ultra-violent Weather Underground, has managed to place various members of that terror group around this president. Many of these terrorists are now working with groups funded by George Soros.
The 1960s were a turbulent time. Many great leaders were assassinated, all by radicals on the left. JFK was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, a Communist.
Dr Martin Luther King, a Republican civil rights icon, was shot by James Earl Ray, a democrat who the FBI though was paid a $100,000 bounty by the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a domestic terror organization founded by the democrat party after the Civil War.
John Kennedy's brother, Bobby, who was running for the democrat party nomination for President, was gunned down by Sirhan Sirhan a Palestinian radical. Oddly enough, the modern day democrat party has supported Palestine and it's terrorists over Israel, since the Carter years.
If you've read about the flotillas that have tried to break through the Israeli security blockades, you may, or may not know that Ayers and Dohrn are up to their necks in this deal, and are said to be readying a new boat named .... wait for it .... "The Audacity of Hope" to further the attacks.
I bring all of this up to remind folks that retiring "professor" William Ayers was recently denied the emeritus honor by the University of Illinois because in his manifesto Prairie Fire, which is the blue print for the systematic destruction of America, Ayers dedicated his work to Sirhan Sirhan, among other radicals.
Birds of a feather, and all.
That came back to haunt Ayers when the University of Illinois board, now chaired by Kennedy's son, considered his request for emeritus status. It was denied in a unanimous vote.
Before the vote, an emotional Chris Kennedy spoke out against granting the status to Ayers.
Pajamas Media has much more, which is a must read, here.
Never forget, Barack Obama launched his political career at a fund raiser in Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn’s living room.
I hate to be a downer here, as frankly, I would rather be making fun of the nekkid dude at this same rally, but that will have to wait for a few more paragraphs.
Obama has surrounded himself with radicals, true believers. Combined with the radically left Congress that has been in place for the last four years, these people know this was going to be what they, and their predecessors had hoped for, and worked towards, for the last one hundred years.
With the radical Marxist, Obama, in the White House, and his fellow travelers in complete control and total of Congress, they saw this as the time their vision of a strong command and control central government could be imposed on unsuspecting Americans, thus creating the Communist Utopia they have always dreamed of.
Thankfully, Obama turned out to be one of the most inept and unskilled buffoons one could ever imagine. Having zero experience, or ability, he squandered the radical left’s only opportunity for success. Now the American People are awake. Wide awake. They know exactly what Communism, Marxism is, and they ain't interested in seeing it in this country in any way, shape or form.
These radicals won't be amused as November rolls around, and the Republicans take both houses of Congress in a big way, and their see all of their hopes and dreams evaporate, hopefully forever. They will become very dangerous after the elections, and as 2012 approaches, down right violent.
As a nation we must pray for Obama’s safety, as he is in danger from his own people. We must pray for safety of our own great leaders, like Sarah Palin as well. The corrupt media has stirred up an enormous amount of hatred in this nation, much of it directed at her, simply because she represents common sense, and is a direct threat to the left’s insane agenda.
That's why it's hard for me personally to joke much about this book throwing deal, even though it would normally be my first instinct. However, if you check out this hashtag on Twitter: #BookThrownAtObama, you might find some funny suggestions of what the title might happen to be.
In the south there's a difference between 'Naked' and 'Nekkid.' 'Naked' means you don't have any clothes on. Nekkid' means you don't have any clothes on ... and you're up to somethin!

Evidently some nimrod decided it would be awesome to streak for the President. Even better, this idiot seems to be doing it in response to a $1 million dare thrown out there by billionaire Alki David, which was reported in the British papers a few months back.
The Blaze has more than you even want to know about Juan James Rodriquez, the streaker, as well as the rest of the story, and sadly, with photos, here.
Why is it always ugly, fat people who do this sort of thing?
