Change is Dangerous... as a King standing on a Terrace...
"... Iraq, gotdamn, now he gunnin for Iran/North Korea got that shit that make LA look like Japan." -Big Boi, "Royal Flush"
That's who I'm worried about, North Korea. Not Iran, no matter how many missiles they "test." Forgive me for not falling in line behind Condoleeza Rice in her sentiments to protect all of our allies (meaning Israel) from attack.
New World Order anyone?
Meanwhile, black America is all up in arms about dumb, irrelevant ass Jesse Jackson and dreams of cutting off Obama's balls. Probably been looking for a pair for a while now. Trust me folks, we got much bigger fish to fry than washed up ex-black "leaders" and their supposed inadvertent whispers on national TV. Hell, it probably helped Obama to not be endorsed by Jesse's needlessly inflammatory self.
My theory is that Obama should appear as conservative and hard-nosed as possible. He should publicly flip-flop on everything from Iraq, to healthcare, to the environment. He should appear to be as disconnected from black America and the black experience as possible. He should whip out that picture of the white grandma that raised him at every turn and he should keep Michelle Obama in the house and start an affair with a white, blonde-haired intern. If he does all of that, he will have a legitimate chance of becoming the first black president of the United States. People are sheep. They say that want change, but deep down their afraid of it and feel much more comfortable going with the status quo- which is why Barack has to play the game to win.
