‘Sarah Smile’

UBM is all about fair play. So let me show y’all a positive Sarah Palin YouTube video.

It’s a revamp of that old Hall & Oates hit, “Sara Smile.” The performer is Lloyd Marcus, a black Republican activist who grew up “in a Baltimore ghetto,” the son of a storefront preacher.

Lloyd Marcus sings songs with a patriotic theme. In 2004 he wrote a tribute song to Ronald Reagan.

Marcus says his bend toward conservatism began in childhood, when he lived in a Baltimore high-rise project.

“Most of [our neighbors] were on various types of governmental assistance. Many were drug addicts, alcoholics and criminals,” Marcus told a reporter in 2006. “They destroyed the apartment building.

“It taught me a lot about liberalism. If you don’t work for something, you don’t care about it. People blame the white man. It wasn’t the white man in the halls raping people.”

As a young man, Marcus abused drugs and alcohol himself. He credits his Christian faith – and the love of his second wife, a white woman – with leading him to sobriety. The couple now lives in Florida.

So... ladies and gentleman, here is Lloyd Marcus giving love to Sarah Palin:

IMO - most blacks have (mostly) conservative values, just not Republican values.
The Nation of Islam is more conservative than the Republican party, it's just not white.

Dude.. is it time to panic yet... I never underestimated McCain (I thought he would get Colin Powell as VP), but I though this was Obama's election to lose... and now I am freaking out big time. This election has put Obama in the weird position of needing to attack the VP pick b/c of popularity. Am I nuts?

LOL. That song is pathetic. Coacoa Tea has nothing to worry about.

Methinks Marcus likes Sarah's gams more than her smile or interpretation of the Bush Doctrine.

I think people are making much to much about Sarah.

Obama is running against McCain, not Palin. If he can keep people focused on that, he will probably win.

That song is horrid.
Yes, Francisco, it's time to freak out.... Obama's running against Sarah's image.
UBM's not freaking out though. He doesn't really like to talk on the phone....But he'll put up horrid shit like that video.

But it's Palin who triggered, like, a 20-point swing in the poll numbers among women. How the heck can you fight that?

If you lose your sense of humor, mel, the terrorists win.

What an awful rendition.

"People blame the white man. It wasn’t the white man in the halls raping people.”

What does that have to do with liberalism?! He's just feeding into the stereotype that all black males are predators.

What a douche.

What part of high-level politics doesn't UBM understand? In politics, you maximize the effectiveness of whatever cards you hold. Suspect you are most upset by the effectiveness of your opponents cards and his strategic playing skills.

Can Hall & Oates sue that kneegrow?
