The Republican Party, number one, which continues to believe that if they play to the left slightly, in front of black audiences or through black media, that they can shave off a large portion of the black vote. And it's been continuously show that the Repiublican candidate, whether an arch-conservative or a moderate centrist, however they're defined, that they cannot shave off a large percentage of the black vote. And that is because the differences go right to the core of black identity.

Black identity is heavily politicized, and associated with a strong belief in a centralized government.

Opposition to same-sex marriage might be something that the Republicans can use to shave off a percentage of the black vote. Evangelical Christianity is strong among blacks, and it doesn't have much use for same-sex marriage.

Has anyone seen the huffpo article - "12 Reasons why Obama is One of the Best Presidents Ever"?

I was gob smacked and hoped our hostess saw and would blog it.

It was every bit as good as you'd expect from someone who needed to embed his Education doctorate into both his byline and his http link title.

Can you imagine Charles K. Styling himself Charles Krauthamer, MD?

Love the pictures of the dogs!

Listening to The Beatles "I've Got a Feeling" from Let it Be... Naked. Way better than the version on the original "Let it Be" album.

I started up Mass in B Minor and the dog immediately got up and came over.

I used to play it going for walks, so she figures a walk is offered.

Add Bach to the dog vocabulary count.

From rhhardin's link which is worth a read:

Are we coming out of the white-guilt tunnel at last? Is the race cringe now just a thing older Americans do? Or is it now permanently encoded in our national DNA, to be passed on down to future generations?

The first thing Chris Clark of the Denver Broncos did was thank Jesus.

The first thing Payton did was thank Chris Clark.

This is a class organization.

Damn, Meade has "it" when it comes to taking pictures of pooches.

@rhhardin: JSB Mass in B minor as a walk cue? Don't dare ask what the dinner bell might be.

I No Longer Believe That Space Monkey Can Save Us; Some Things Are Just Too Big.

I Have Been Having Second Thoughts About My Space Monkey Theory, and Believe I Have Detected Possible Flaws.

Possible Flaw No. 1: Existence of Space Monkey.

Space Monkey Theory is Based on the Presumption of the Existence of Space Monkey. There May Be a Problem With the Theory if There Really Isn't a Space Monkey. More Research May Be Required.



betamax3000 said...

Possible Flaw No. 2: Size of Space Monkey.

The Space Monkey Theory Depends on Space Monkey Being Really, Really Big. If Space Monkey Exists and is Simply Large -- or Worse, Small -- Space Monkey Will Not Be Able to Fulfill Much of the Necessities of Space Monkey Theory.

betamax3000 said...

Possible Flaw No. 3: Language Skills of Space Monkey.

Space Monkey Theory Does Not Absolutely Depend on Space Monkey Communicating in English, But Lack of this Language Skill May Cause Misunderstandings That Undermine Space Monkey Theory.

betamax3000 said...

Possible Flaw No. 4: Intelligence of Space Monkey.

Space Monkey Theory Posits That Space Monkey is Very Very Smart. If Space Monkey is Only of Average Intelligence He Will Not Be Able to Fulfill Space Monkey Theory Because Space Monkey Theory Depends, in Large Part, on Space Monkey Being Smart Enough to Solve Problems That Humans' ceiling of Intelligence Prevents Us of Accomplishing Ourselves.

I Realize These Are Significant Flaws, But Examination is How Science Works.
