John McCain picture worth a thousand words

June 20, 2008

I ran across this picture in a very fine article at Think Progress.  With the presidential election still over Rodney Dangerfield McCainfour months away, it appears that Barack Obama is a shoo-in for victory. 

If McCain should pull it out, though, you have to think we’ll be seeing this picture almost daily.

Ever see Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School?  McCain looks just like the young  character, Thornton Melon, after he shows his poor grades to his father and claims he’s trying.  His father barks back, “Then try harder!” 

This McCain shot is an almost exact duplicate of the face the the child actor makes following his father’s stern admonishment.

I envision McCain making this face and gesture at every press conference.

It will make for great material on Saturday Night Live.  Of course,  I’ll never be able to enjoy Back to School quite as much, now that I’ve seen this, especially if McCain should triumph in November.

Is Obama too inexperienced. . . or too black to win?

May 27, 2008

Before you get your underwear in a bunch over this post’s title, take a deep breath and say, “jack likes Barack” ten times.  Jack rogers is certainly no racist (did I just reference myself in the third person?).

This question is posed because of a Memorial Day conversation, when a relative suggested that she would not vote for Barack Obama, even though she prefers a Democrat, because he’s too inexperienced.  A breath later she said she believes Obama could be assasinated, if he wins.  (Hmm, sound familiar?)

This got me to thinking.  For the fence-sitters out there who might otherwise lean toward Obama over John McCain, what might ultimately change their minds on election day — Obama’s inexperience or the fact that he’s black?
