"What a positive role model [Barack Obama] is for young black people, for all young people," Juan Williams is telling Fox & Friends viewers this morning. We guess it depends upon what your definition of "positive role model is" (see below).
"You don't know how much this means to me, Brian," Juan Williams is telling Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends early morning. While we agree with Lawrence Eagleburger that Barack Obama is a charlatan — or more colorfully, in Thomas Sowell's words, "an ego and a mouth" — we can't help but be touched by Juan's earnest wonder and joy that a fellow man of color has
begged, borrowed and stolen won enough votes to become Leader of the Free World:
When I was a kid I didn't even dream I could be sitting on this couch with you, Brian, let alone be President. When I was growing up in Brooklyn, there was no role model for a black man in journalism. Now you have this example of a man who has been a scholar, head of the Harvard Law Review, ran an amazing campaign, excellent speaker, married, two kids. What a positive role model he is for young black people, for all young people.
"Well, if Juan thinks a cog in the Chicago Thug Machine is a good role model, so be it," imails our sis, who emailed us last night just as the fat lady began to sing:
I just had a frantic phone call from Chris. He's at a party where he is the lone McCain supporter.
I gave him a huge pep-talk, recalling the Election of '68, and it seemed to cheer him. David and I were at Greg and Marcia's, watching the election returns. David and I left their apartment at about 11:00 PM. Marcia and Greg were JUBILANT, assured by the MSM that according to "projections," Humphrey had won. David and I struggled home, downcast and downhearted. Eight hours later, we awoke to find that NIXON had won!!!!
Kate Smith was a fat lady, but when she sang, it was "God Bless America." :-)
How ironic that MLKs dream of a colorblind society has been turned upside down in this historic election. It was not colorblindness but its opposite that enabled — in the sense of enabling an addict — a candidate whose self-professed anti-Constitutional, Marx-lite fondness for "income redistribution" and lifelong alliances with notorious America haters were willfully and sometimes thuggishly suppressed over the course of a two-year campaign by fellow-traveling, white-guilt-ridden media elites who, like Obama himself, would accuse skeptics like us of racism and preferred to keep the great unwashed uninformed. It's the stupidity, stupid?
