” We’re going to church. A Christian church. With white people. In public. As a family. And we’re walking. Like Orthodox Jews. Happy now?”

QUOTES

“I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I am one of those people. And I’m waiting, Sir. … I don’t feel it yet. Is this my new reality?” – Velma Hart, the chief financial officer of AMVETS in Washington, describing how the recession has taken a toll on her family at a Monday town hall meeting in Washington, DC.

“I understand your frustration. My goal is not to convince you that everything is where it ought to be. It’s not. Still, we’re moving in the right direction.” – President Barack Obama responding to Velma Hart.

“There were a number of people who made terrible decisions. They turned the Justice Department into the laughingstock of the country.” – John McKay, a former U.S. attorney for the western district of Washington state at a forum held by the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law.

Republicans under a spell

Excerpt: O’Donnell is where the GOP has been heading for some time. The party’s leaders have steadfastly refused to take a stand against any idiocy, even suggesting they agree that Obama might not be a Christian. Their intellectuals have supported and advanced the know-nothingness of Sarah Palin. Nothing to them is beyond the pale. This party is not fit to govern. It would support the Joker but not Batman, who hangs too much with Robin.

Wiccan Community Upset With O’Donnell, Calls Witchcraft Comments “Teaching Moment”  Oh no! Christine O’Donnell has lost the “Wiccans” in Delaware! How will she replace those crucial 15 votes? Should her opponent seek their endorsement and ask them to cast a spell over the voters that would ensure him victory? I’m only half-joking here. Sort of.

Republicans, bewitched

Christine O’Donnell’s confession to have ‘dabbled into witchcraft’ explains what’s happened to the GOP.  Humor me for a moment or two: Imagine if you will, we’re back in the summer of 2008 and in the midst of the presidential campaign. Let’s say that one of the candidates, we’ll call him Barack Obama, during an interview or appearance, admitted to having “dabbled into Islam” during his high school years. How huge of an uproar, on a scale of 1-to-10 with 10 being ‘shouting from the mountaintops’, from the right do you think we’d have seen? I’m guessing it would have been at least a 15.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

The GOP hates that Barack Obama is POTUS and the Democrats control Congress so much that they’re willing to back a former potential wiccan, Christine O’Donnell, in Delaware. Think about it for a minute: the party of “Family Values” is putting their money on someone who “dabbled in witchcraft” as a teenager. Hell, I LOVED me some Bewitched as a kid but I never, ever thought about leaving Bethel Baptist Church to hook-up with a coven or whatever the hell a group of witches is called these days.

Anyone who’s read the Flyer on a regular basis knows that I’m a big supporter of gay rights, especially same-sex marriage because I feel it’s a matter of civil rights. But, is “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” really the political issue the gay community should be focusing on right now? I mean, are gays and lesbians looking to join the military to eliminate unemployment in their community? And, is Lady Gaga going to join up too?

Can anyone explain to me how El DeBarge can look and sound that good after being hooked on drugs for years and spending time in jail?

Wyclef Jean released a statement through his spokesperson today that he’s ending his run for the presidency of Haiti. Frankly, I didn’t know he was still running.

Turns out that I was really, really wrong about Shannon Sharpe being gone from CBS’ NFL studio show. I can’t help but wonder how much he paid to make that pesky little restraining order in the ATL go away last week.
