Sailer on Obama
From Tony Rezko to his wife’s salary to the sincere but politically shrewd move of joining a very racialist church 20 years ago...
If I didn’t know that Senator Obama is a cross between Mother Teresa, Neo from “The Matrix,” and Jonathan Livingston Seagull, I might almost suspect he could be a Chicago politician.
The Obamas make a good team. He can play the moderate:
I think a lot of people just assumed that what they knew about Tiger Woods — came from a stable mixed-race home, didn’t favor one part of his heritage over another, had a rock-solid psyche, etc. — also applied to Obama. I realize that doesn’t make one bit of sense, but stupid ideas can get stuck in people’s heads for stupid reasons.
Whilst she can harp on race to ensure getting the black vote as happened recently in Mississippi.

An Obama-Clinton ticket sounds like an easy win:
There’s no way she can win the nomination without the superdelegates and all the accompanying chaos. Hillary will also come under far less scrutiny in the second spot.

That’s her price of admission — either she gets the second spot or she fights for every last delegate in Denver, probably giving the election to McCain.

Don’t they hate one another? Sure, but it’s nothing compared to the mutual loathing between the Kennedys and LBJ. Those guys needed one another in ’60, just as O & C need each other now.
And now, rubbish:
On Christmas morning, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. compared presidential candidate Barack Obama’s impoverished childhood to Jesus Christ’s. “Barack knows what it means to be a black man living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people,” he then trumpeted. “Hillary [Clinton] can never know that.”
He went to private high school in nearly race-blind Hawaii and identified with American black culture by watching ‘Soul Train’. Try again.
It seems a little late in the day for the IRS to notice that black ministers routinely campaign for candidates from their pulpits. They’ve been doing it with impunity for generations. Heck, both parties bribe ministers.
And:
My vague impression is that African immigrants tend to be descended from the slave-dealing classes of the days of yore. (I vaguely recall that [Harvard’s Henry Louis] Gates ran into some of this while filming his PBS series on Africa — the educated Africans he mostly conversed with in Africa with tended to be the descendants of the people who caught and sold his ancestors to the white man).
If he were really for change he’d be, no pun intended, blacked out of the contest like Ron Paul was.

Better than the mad bomber or the witch (like a screechier version of Gerry Adams she always sounds angry to me!) but that’s not saying much. Colour is nothing to do with it.
