Reconsidering

Now, I know this blog came out early in the campaign with a key endorsement of Obama, but I've decided to withdraw my support after reading this important editorial:

Do We Really Want Another Black President After The Events Of Deep Impact?

  1. And did you also see these important political stories?

    and my personal favorite, because it could actually work:

  2. Even crazier things happen when Morgan Freeman is God (Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty). I mean, what kind of God would give Bruce that kind of power?

    To be fair, I think it might be Morgan Freeman, not black people in general. I definitely will NOT vote for Morgan Freeman for either president or God.

  4. RIP Smarch.org...

    For my birthday last year I was the proud recipient of a bound copy of "Smarchives," a printed version of everything ever posted to that good site. I may have to bring it back east with me to share the joy. (I'll refrain from bringing the Sing Off! board game, but only because its tube is too big to bring on the plane.)

    R, are your ears burning?

  5. That R. He's got to lay off the burning Q-tips.

  6. I have to admit, this editorial gave me pause, but I lost any respect for it when I noticed this glaring error in the second paragraph:

    Have we learned nothing from the tragic events of 1998...The mere fact that this country is even considering putting another black man, Barack Obama, in the Oval Office proves that we have not.

    Apparently, we have not learned nothing from the lamentable incident involving President Freeman and the Wolf-Beiderman comet. Since we have not learned nothing, we can but conclude that the popularity of Senator Obama and his success to date in the primaries and caucuses is actually the result of considered opinion on the part of the preponderance of those supporting him, and not a rush to incredible folly brought about through sad ignorance of the harsh lessons of history.

    Barack supporters, relax and remain steadfast in your choice of nominee!
