Who are they voting for?

April 14, 2008 § Leave a comment

Sometimes you come up with phrases that stick with you as immediately brilliant. Most of the time it sounds like crap on reflections. So before I reflect, I wrote some crack over at Light-skinned-ed Girl’s place that I like. In a completely non-self-aggrandizing way, I swear LOL!!! In response to Light-skinned-ed Girl’s post on the “uppity Negro” analysis of Hillary’s kneecapping of Obama on the gun-rights issue, I said:

The problem for the political status quo is the tan guy who manages to convince A-merry-ca that they are voting for Michael and Tiger (who they ADORE) instead of Jesse and Al (who they do not adore).

And that is it, isn’t it? This is the key to the Obama success and, should it develop, the Obama victory. He has to keep convincing people he is a tan guy (which he is and practically iconic) like Tiger (fer real) or Michael (honorary and de facto) instead of a black guy.
