Finally Discussing Barack

I haven't posted much about Barack Obama or the presidential race. There is so much coverage on the news, in print, in the blogosphere - you just can't escape it. With so much over exposure there just wasn't much that I could add.

But the recent stunts and shows by the New Yorker has finally forced me to discuss this. Have you seen the cover? How in the hell did they think they could do this and not come under attack. But I have to admit - this is only the beginning. The attacks are going to only get worse as we get closer to November.

Jesse Jackson - WTF! If you didn't hear, Jesse commented that he wants to cut Obama's nuts off. Is he jealous of Barack's success? Why in the world would he do such a thing? Now I'm really not mad at Jesse for saying it because he is entitled to an opinion. I"m mad because he was dumb enough to get caught saying it. He had to know that a comment like this would be scrutinized by the media. Anything he says will be blown out of proportion (and he knows this). So why would he allow himself to be put in a situation where he allows the press to bid him AGAINST Barrack.

Kudos to Ebony magazine for naming Barack one of the Coolest Brothers on the planet. I love the photo they're using for the cover. Damn this picture makes him look hella sexy. I know image should not play a part in the election of our president, but truth be told it plays a large part. Not sure what photographer captured this image but great job. I think I'm going to frame this cover and put it on my wall.
