SFW and NSFW videos containing some of the cussing are here.

As for the McWhorter BS, I guess it's easy to forget BHO's background when you're just a hack.

He's got a promising career in voice acting if this whole politics thing doesn't pan out.

"Obama does crazy things with his voice."

Obama will do crazy things with the country.

As I commented on your son's blog, Gods help Obama if Howard Stern finds out about these clips and starts them in heavy rotation on his radio show.

So because President Obama can seamlessly (?) mimic "Black English" this is good?

Like, why?

Color me Dumb. Struck.

McWhorter sounds like his leg was tingling when he wrote that piece.

Hey, I forgot about that "baby face" humiliation, subsequent apology and forgiveness.

It's something he *does*, this playful mocking thing he does...

You know what I thought was disturbing? When he mocked Biden at his press conference. I couldn't help but wonder if Biden would speak to him again. If he doesn't have Biden's back, and can make a joke of him in front of the nation... I think that means something.

If Mort were awake he would say it is racist to actually listen to what Obama is saying.

No politician should read their own book for audio. The Grammy isn't worth it.

There is a film called "Idiocracy" it's a bit uneven but worth seeing. It depicts an ordinary guy (actually chosen for his average-ness) who is frozen accidentally 500 years and awakens in a world to find that he is the smartest man. Everyone is stupid, crude and self-indulgent and the hit TV show is "Ass". Our hero's brilliance is discovered by the President of the US who is Rick James meets the WWF. This could happen in 25 years or even less.

I went away to my blog and wrote more.

Thanks for the inspiration Ann and Jac!

Uh, does John McWhorter understand that most people, especially white people, don't see the Presidency in terms of masters/servants? The President isn't The Master whether he's white or black.

I know on one level he was just making a pithy point, spinning Obama in a particular way the better to glory in his wonderfulness, but, on another, uh, ew. Just...ew.

He's right about the liberal white people never having been to church until Obama. It's so amusing to see people that I know have nothing but dismissive contempt for religion getting their church on - totally oblivious to the fact that this is why those ignorant, uneducated folks go to church in the first place. (And church proper is cheaper!)

Properly understood, the president is our employee - just to spell it out.
