I think I am the only person of my age group that HASN'T tried cocaine. Apparently, while I was playing R&D at WrightPat and Edwards, everyone else was doing Coke.

I keep wondering since Bushie admitted to Coke use how the Republicans are going to try and use that against Obama come the general election. It should be interesting.

You certainly have room in the back yard of your current abode. You can put 3 double wides back there, easy.

Attaboy. Let's have 4 more years of Bush economy and Iraq policies because you can't get your arms around a black man.

Cool.

On FARK we would say "there is a reason Florida has it's own tag".

So we now have a racism scale and Wrights comments weren't ALL that high on the scale?. Is that the point here?. That Wright COULD have said worse but didn't?. Its amazing what lengths supporters of candidates will go through to excuse their candidate.

So I can assume that Bill Richardson is now on your shit list................

AP: Gov. Richardson endorsing Obama

SANTA FE, N.M. - New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, the nation's only Hispanic governor, is endorsing Sen. Barack Obama for president, calling him a "once-in-a-lifetime leader" who can unite the nation and restore America's international leadership.

How do you think your post #186 in this thread is different than Wright's comments?

Let me help you. It's the same 'level' of racist argument in reverse.

And yes, there is a sliding scale. Do you really mean to imply that no worse racism can be spoken than you and your tub mate Jeremiah have displayed?

I agree that it is lucky how the chips feel but I also think it is more than that, hopefully ome of the society is finally getting it.........Oh and I love the last line in this article.

'O' WHAT A LUCKY BREAK THIS FELLOW IS GETTING

March 21, 2008 -- WASHINGTON - Call him Barack O'Bama - for he's got the luck of the Irish.

The very week he faces his toughest obstacle ever - one that may still derail his candidacy - Obama gets a near-game-ending pot of gold.

It now appears certain that Hillary Rodham Clinton's efforts to rewrite party rules in a desperate search for a lifeline have failed.

Her absurd proposal of counting her "wins" in Michigan and Florida - long after everyone agreed they wouldn't count - has been laughed off the table.

And now, it appears, there won't even be any revotes.

While revotes are the only way to resolve the matter justly, they would have been problematic for Obama ever since his insane preacher - who makes the Black Panthers seem docile - became a household name.

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright would have terrified elderly Democrats in Florida and blue-collar whites in Michigan.

But Obama's luck doesn't end there. The timing of this whole mess couldn't have been better, because it competed for airtime with Eliot Spitzer's sexcapades.

The tapes have been around for years but came out only after Obama established himself as a solid front-runner.

And when they finally got widespread attention, it was during the longest spell of the campaign without any contests.

The next primary is still more than four weeks away in Pennsylvania, where Obama was going to lose anyway.

But luck is never just luck, and Obama works very hard.

The Wright scandal has been Obama's Gennifer Flowers moment.

And just as Bill Clinton handled that first great bimbo eruption, Obama handled this quite deftly.

In his Philadelphia speech on race this week, Obama laid bare his soul.

By blaming both whites and blacks for racial tensions, he triangulated the problem.

And, of course, he changed the subject from his Pastor Eruption.

He out-Clintoned even the Clintons and somewhere, Bill Clinton is marveling over how he backed the wrong horse in this race.
