and what exactly would jesse do with obama’s nuts?

There are almost 3,000 hits when you Google “cut Obama’s nuts off.” Only 5 things, however, come up when you Google “cut McCain’s nuts off.” I don’t know that we can read a lot into that, but it’s clear that there’s a huge nut lopping deficit. The question is, can we overcome it by November? Can we, by election day, have more people talking about McCain’s nuts than those of our candidate?

Listening to the inflammatory off-air comments made by Jesse Jackson the other day, it sounds as though he’s pissed at Obama for talking down to black people on the subject of so-called “faith-based” initiatives. Spike Lee and others, however, seem to think that’s code. They think that what Jackson is really saying is that Obama doesn’t come across as black enough. Regardless of the reason, however, one thing is clear – Jackson really wants those nuts.

I probably wouldn’t have posted about this tonight, but I really liked something that Spike Lee had to say on the subject… Here it is:

“There are middle-class, educated black people who speak the way he does… We have to try to move away from this so-called image of what black is, which is largely influenced by rap and that type of stuff.”

And, just for curiosity’s sake, if you don’t mind my asking, are any of you out there in my audience tonight black? I don’t think I’ve ever asked that before.

    Jesse is just bitter that he doesn’t have a seat at the table. Obama did it without Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition and that pisses him the hell off.

    Don’t worry about Obama. Once he’s elected president, he’ll have the right (under our redefined Constitution) to literally get Jackson’s, if he’s ever in the mood.

    OK, so out of the 800 plus unique readers I get a day, there’s only one that’s black? And even he’s not so sure? That’s wild… I’ve got to think that there are more out there, and that they just don’t want to speak up… What is it, people? Are you embarrassed?

    I can think of nothing Jesse Jackson could have done which would have benefited Obama more.
