I’m going to Obama with a banjo on my knee

The Wave's Howie Schwach editorialized on how Obama’s refusal to wear a lapel pin that would demonstrate his patriotism will cost him votes. My guess is that Obama can wear a jacket made of lapel pins and he will not get those votes. No matter what polls show, when it comes time to pull the lever, a lot of people will not vote for a black man for president. I think it’s called “racism.”

Some comedian said that the only time you see a black man as president in movies and on TV is when some cataclysm is about to hit. What’s more likely? Obama as president or the earth getting hit by an asteroid? He has my vote anyway, but I’m writing this from under my dining room table.

Coming soon: What Randi said about supporting Obama at the Delegate Assembly on Apr. 16 and how she said it - I wish I had a picture of that crocodile smile when she said, "We don't want McCain to win, do we?"

Starting Now: Hillary in '12


  1. It's remarkable that in America today anyone can keep a straight face and worry about lapel pins.

  2. Randi is such a slimeball. She has no concern for what is good for our country or our schools, and this pseudo-racist dig at Obama is just further evidence of what we already knew.

  3. But she's our slimeball and I'll take her over any of your slimeballs any day.

  4. Really, you'll take her over Obama?
