Rev. Jeremiah John Edwards Wright

The more and more I've been listening to Rev. Wright speak, the more and more that I realize that his words are a more vivid and intense form of what John Edwards cast as "Two Americas"...

Think about it... it's a very class-intensive look at how society is perceived by people of different classes. I think the biggest difference is that Rev. Wright is black and John Edwards is white... and since John Edwards is white, he can get away with saying it, as long as he keeps dressing it nicely. Rev. Wright is black and will suffer from it like Kanye's "W doesn't care about black people" comment of Mike Myers' stupification fame. I agree with both men... except the damning America part of Rev. Wright's comments. There are two classes in America, the haves and everyone else.

Everyone else doesn't necessarily entail only "have-nots", rather it also entails the "have-somes, but in debt" and similar groups.

This is the issue which presses America and it is up to us to elect the right person to solve this. And that right person is not Hillary Clinton or John McCain.

Would I be bitter?

You bet.

With all this feigned indignation being launched by the Clinton camp at the Obama camp over the so-called flap regarding the "ill-chosen" words by Senator Obama about the feelings of the working class in Pennsylvania, it is important to consider what these people who "cling to" their "guns and religion" would be bitter about.

Is it possible that these people are bitter about the failed leadership of the people they have successively elected to all levels of government? Could it be possible that Senator Clinton is a long-time part of that problem and has nothing to fix the problem except temporary bandages which only go so far to ultimately prolong the problems which ail this country?

Of course not. Nothing's ever Hillary's fault.

Senator Clinton, you try to exonerate yourself from the crimes of the failure of leadership in this country, but when it comes to review the evidence and the jury of the American people to render a verdict, you will find that they have convicted you and deny you and the former President Clinton another opportunity to squander a good chance at leading. So, Senator Clinton, I do say you have every right to pander away to the American people, but I do have faith in everyone else to see through your thinly-veiled charade for what it is: an attempt to continue the previous 28 years of mismanagement by the highest level of executive government in this country.

What do the Jayhawks and Hillary Clinton have in common?


But that's not what Clinton wants you to believe:

Crossing paths with rival Barack Obama at a union event Tuesday morning, Hillary Clinton compared herself to the come-from-behind NCAA champion Kansas Jayhawks.

“A few of you were up late watching that game last night,” she told a gathering of the Communications Workers of America in Washington, D.C. “Great comeback, right? My kind of outcome.”

The Jayhawks tied the Memphis Tigers with just 2.1 seconds left to go in regulation before scoring an overtime victory Monday night.

She said that the union members knew what it was like to go up against big odds: “You know what it’s like to be told to go away, to quit. I know a little something about that too,” she said, to cheers from the crowd.

"My kind of outcome"

The problem, of course, is that Hillary Clinton still holds a lead in Pennsylvania and that even if she wins the contest in PA, she can't accurately portray herself as a comeback. It's like when she says she's the underdog... how can you be the underdog when you were the heavy favorite going into the Democratic primaries?

Feh to you, Hillary Clinton, you lying Liarly McLiarson. FEH.

A really random find...

In an usual show of an attempt at transparency from the Bush administration, just over two months ago the TSA launched a blog to "inform" the travelling public what goes on with the TSA and to spread propaganda (not necessarily being a negative connotation in this instance) on the government's activities. They seek to dispel the "myths" set forth by various news agencies, namely CNN, and convince the travelling public that things are safer than ever.

Like I said... an interesting find.

I found it via Blogger's featured blogs Blogs of Note while meandering online.

In other news: A PPP poll (or as Drudge had it labelled: SHOCK POLL) has Obama up by 2 in PA. McCain sits by and grins as the Dems go at each other's throats... but in an odd way, I think this extended process will actually help the Dems, it keeps the news focus on them, and as long as they kiss and make up at the end of it all, Obama will have no problem beating McCain in November.

That said, I'm now rooting for Bill Richardson to be the Secretary of State. I think Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer - or if he wants to reach out to ex-Hillaryphiles -Indiana Senator Evan Bayh might be good choices to fill the Vice Presidential slot and Hillary can finish out her Senatorial and political career rather ignominiously. Go team Billary!
