Another good night for Barack Obama, another rough one for Hillary Clinton.
Interesting thing I noticed watching Obama’s speech in Texas tonight. Early on, he said “Y’all know how to do it here in Houston.” He also gave “a shout-out” to one of his supporters; another supporter was “in the house.”
No major presidential candidate has ever spoken this way. And it didn’t come across as racial but generational. He’s speaking to a young generation whose language has been shaped by hip-hop. Very interesting indeed.
In the minus column, the Obama campaign sent a Texas state senator onto MSNBC last night to hype Barack. Chris Matthews made this poor jerk look like an idiot... totally unprepared to do what he went there to do. Follow this link to the Huffington Post if you haven’t seen the video yet.
As for that image above, I got it from a site called Freaking News, where Photoshop geeks gather to share manipulated photos. The “cyborg” Obama was posted in late 2006, among other Obama images... some of dubious racial sensitivity.
Race is a recurring theme among these frolicsome Photoshoppers. A recent topic was “Black Celebrities,” which means white celebrities rendered black.
I must say, this “Black Bob Dylan” is kinda tight:
