The Pot Can't Call The Kettle Black

Geraldine Ferraro Speaks The Truth

Hillary! shit-hammered adviser (and former Democrat Vice President candidate), Geraldine Ferraro, for having the balls to state the obvious.

Senator Obama is where he is, as I noted in an earlier post, because he has no record to speak of; and, because he is black.
There, I said it. Barack Obama is black. These attributes--a lack of a paper trail and his blackness--go hand-in-hand; and, one without the other would knock him from the Olympic heights. (e.g., The Reverends Jackson and Sharpton are not viable because they each have a record.)

And, when anyone dares to suggest that Senator Obama is unqualified to be President, the lynch mobs gather, and there are screams of racism, narrow-mindedness, bigotry, and ignorance.

But, frankly, I would like to know how, in the name of all that is holy, is it wrong to question Senator Obama's (lack of) experience when it was more than all right to question the intellect and experience of (then Governor, now President) George W. Bush. (Even today, he is known to some as "the dumbest President.")

Hell, President Bush had learned to fly an interceptor, gotten an M.B.A., run a business, run a baseball team, and governed a Republic (yes, Virginia, Texas is a republic). Senator Obama has, well, defended Tony Rezko, distanced himself from Louis Farrakhan, and been a legislator.

People were elated when he selected Dick Cheney to be his running mate, because he would bring gravitas to the ticket. Who is Senator Obama going to select to bring gravitas to his ticket?

Oh, wait. He doesn't need any gravitas, because he is the second coming of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and the Reverend Martin Luther King, all rolled into one.

I am not saying that I am happy about everything that President Bush has done; and, maybe there is something to be said for having little (or no experience) when coming to the job; but, face it, even President Jimmy Carter (our worst President) had been a Chief Executive.

If the media is doing their job, then we will hear about Senator Obama's warts, Hillary!'s wounds, and Senator McCain's skin cancers.

And, if they won't, The Lifeguard will.

Oh, for Pete's sake. Obama's been a law professor! Edited the Harvard Law Review! And got into Columbia (go lions!) and Harvard without his daddy's help! You think baby Bush got into Yale because of his grades? Are you freaking kidding me?

Ask any Texan, and you will learn that Bush held a governorship that is famously lacking in power (Texans hate centralized government), proved a staggering failure at running an oil business, and owned a baseball team that traded away Sammy Sosa.

Okay, Obama's a young guy, but he's been in the Senate, he's been a state senator, and he is certifiably brilliant, as evidenced by his speech on race in America, which is the single most intelligent piece of political discourse I have seen since I attained legal majority.

Most exciting for me, anyway, is that the man is not a freaking baby boomer. I am so over the freaking sixties, I can't even tell you. And I think a lot of other people are, too.

Mitt Romney's speech on religion was better--and more coherent and substantive--than Barry Obama's speech on race.

Plus, Mitt didn't dump his grandmother under a bus for saying something that Bill Cosby and the Reverend Jesse Jackson have said.

Finally, Barry Obama is nowhere near as brilliant as some other Democrat also-rans. You know, like Senator Joe Biden, former Governor Howard Dean, or Senator John F. Kerry (who was smart enough to marry two really rich women).

I do like that he is young, and not a boomer; but, face it, would you want me to be the POTUS? I didn't think so.
