Btw, I'm sorry about all the Barack Obama stuff going on here right now. The day after I decided to tacitly root for him, I suddenly got hit by a deluge of material in his favour.

He'll make a fine vice president.

Careful. You give him that position, one day he might get all uppity and ask for a job with real power.

For an analysis (if not an explanation) of the Hopemeister syndrome, see
David Brooks in NYT today.

that word "uppity" -- so much history of oppression in that gentle little word.

well-played, oh brothers of irony.

Chris Rock: Thank you, Dennis. Now as you know, there's been alot of talk about a black vice president. And I just wanna tell the world that it'll never happen. As long as you live you will never see a black vice president, you know why? Because some black guy would just kill the president. I'd do it. If Colin Powell was vice president, I'd kill the president and tell his mother about it. What would happen to me? What would they do? Put me in jail with a bunch of black guys that would treat me like a king for the rest of my life? I would be the biggest star in jail, alright, people would be coming up to me and I'd be signing autographs: "97-KY, here you go." Guys would be going: "You're the brother that shot Bush. And you told his mother about it huh? I hope my children turn out to be just like you, Man, you know I was getting ready to rape you until I realized who you were. And even if they had a death penalty, what would happen? I'd just be pardoned by the black president. So you see, Dennis, it would not be in George Bush's best intrests to place Colin Powell on the ticket.
