"I Wish He Were Blacker"

That's my response to this latest stupid brouhaha — 'I Forgot He Was Black': Chris Matthews Under Fire for Comment About Obama.

I really wish that our sixth black president — Obama Won't Be First Black President — were blacker, someone like President Beck (not, God forbid, the Mormon convert Glenn Beck), portrayed by Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact (1998), or , more realistically, Al Sharpton. Instead, we have a man who, according to Bill Kauffman, "is a 'cosmopolitan,' which by some lights means a sophisticate but which a character in Henry James's Portrait of Lady defined as 'a little of everything and not much of any'" — The Candidates from Nowhere.

Our current ruler, half-Kenyan, half-Kansan, has less to do with Malcolm X than he does with the Bilderberg Group, no matter what Stuff White People Like types will tell you.

The one drop rule which all libs. vilify by says he can't be blacker.

Btw, it would be highly entertaining if Al Sharpton was elected president.

President Obama is more closely related to Dick Cheney and George W. Bush than he is to any actual Americans of West African descent (this is according to Wikipedia; not always that accurate, but it'll do in a pinch). As I think I have said before, he's a BLASP- Black Anglo-Saxon Protestant.

And I have to second the above comment about President Al Sharpton. Tucker Carlson once wrote about the surreal experience of interviewing Sharpton, and how the good reverend avoided dealing with difficult questions by piling bombast and audacity on top of outrageousness and misdirection, all peppered with a healthy dollop of brazen lying.

People say that Bill Clinton was the first black president. There was a skit on SNL about whether he deserved to have an office in Harlem or not. After considering how he treated Hilary they agreed that he qualified. Picture Bill in corn rows... They were on to something.
