Americans to Vote for White Guy?!

May 15, 2012

We are beginning to see more national surveys now, including this week’s New York Times/CBS News poll, which show Mitt Romney with a slight lead over President Obama in the general election matchup.

Let's hope not! Imagine an electorate that votes, not on the issues, but on the skin color of a candidate! Merde alors!

It reminds, me, really, of the Naked Gun movie when Det. Dreben (Leslie Neilson) tells O.J. (the murderer) in regards to boxing: "Never bet on the white guy!"

Let's hope such shallow though-processes and reasoning adopted from an epic comedy haven't now found themselves into American voting patterns!

Maybe white boys are not as bad as we thought, though. Let's hope not! If they elect Romney "White House" might garner an entire new meaning!

Somehow, I can hear the Rev. Wright rolling thunder again: "G-D America! G-D America! Done put them white boys back at the front of the bus!!"

(With apologies to the O12 team!)

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
