I Read The News Today, Oh Boy

"I guess you didn't plan on me whippin' that third-place ass in Iowa, huh?"

Despite what ingratiating, pin-headed Uncle Thomases like Michael Steele would have us believe, if the 2008 Iowa Caucus has shown us anything it is that Obama just might have a shot. His preliminary encapsulated Iowa victory isn't exactly celebration-worthy but it does lend the Obama machine some short-lived credibility. While it isn't exactly shocking that he managed to get the drop on Edwards and Hillary, it is somewhat surprising, considering all of the ground he had to make up over the last few months.

Now come the inevitable attacks, from the Clinton and Edwards camps, on Barack Obama and his seeming lack of leadership ability, his admitted marijuana use, or his...well, we'll just see. But you'd better believe that between now and New Hampshire John's and Hillary's hatchet people will be engaging in some curious political alchemy in an attempt to transform a likable and capable opponent into a potential national liability. Unsurprisingly, the Clinton folks have been the first to hint that things are going to get nasty. Oh well. I guess attacking someone else is easier than convincing the voting public that you actually possess the experience that you fault others for not having.

Yes, politics can be evil. I like Obama as well. Unfortunately, I have distanced myself from either party. I'm still not sure who is the lesser evil, but Obama is most certainly a man of the people. Honestly, I have only followed some of the debates. The system has turned me against politics all together, but I know that I cannot remain passive because all of this affects/infects me in the long run. Peace~

Funny. I was thinking the same thing. His win actually made me a little nervous for what the opposition might cook up next. Have you ever heard some of the stories of how the Clintons have shut some people up?....shocking stuff (tongue firmly in cheek).

Whats up my brother. I think we are on the same page here. This whole race is bringing up something that I have been wondering for years. What exactly did Bill Clinton do to change the lives of black people so much that we consider him one of us?

Michael Steele makes me want to go to the toilet whenever he opens his mouth. Why didn't he just quote Uncle Ruckus and say, "White man can't keep anything to himself."

Hillary Clinton's much touted "experience" tickles me. Can you imagine a person being hired as CEO of a multi-national corporation because they once (some time ago) were the spouse of somebody else in the position? Ludicrous!!
