Barack Obama has just sewn up the Democratic Party’s nomination for president of the United States, ending a six-month primary season that blew the world’s mind.
His Republican opponent, John McCain, is talking shit about him right now on a campaign stump. Yeah, boyee... let the contest begin!
If Obama and Hillary Clinton say anything interesting in their speeches tonight, I’ll blog about it here.
9:24 p.m. (Pacific Time) – I find myself without much to add tonight. And not because I’ve allowed a malicious rumor to harsh my buzz.
One of my sisters phoned me tonight during Obama’s speech, and she was totally giggling. She attended segregated public schools in Washington, D.C. She says she never thought she’d live to see a night like tonight.
The only thing I want to mention has nothing to do with that. It has to do with a conversation we had here several months ago... about black slang that crosses over into the mainstream.
On MSNBC a short while ago, the esteemed journalist Howard Fineman pondered the question “What does Hillary want?”
And Mr. Fineman said: “She wants her props from him.” (From Obama, that is.)
Okay, Howie. You best be addin’ a lot more of that flava to your vocabulary, homebwah. There’s a new sheriff in town, nawm sayn?
