A visual aid for the blind?

This will be the sickest thing you read about the presidential campaign today:

They're not exactly rooting for him, but prominent white supremacists anticipate a boost to their cause if Barack Obama becomes the first black president.

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, of Louisiana, said Democrat Obama would be a "visual aid" to the idea that whites have lost control of America.

[. . .]

Obama "will be a clear signal for millions of our people," Duke wrote. "Obama is a visual aid for White Americans who just don't get it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back we are heading for complete annihilation as a people."

Wow. This was our country? Did I miss that meeting? Where's my share?

Apparently, you DID miss the meeting, Leo. If you want a share, you have to buy a share.

Obama has linked up to the security outfit that David Duke and Friends most fear.

According to US News & World Report:

Blackwater did indeed protect Senator Barack Obama in Afghanistan and Iraq last week, impressing the presidential candidate so much that he was overheard saying, "Blackwater is getting a bad rap."

Now didn't I read somewhere that Blackwater is a Halliburton subcontractor? Hmmmmm

Leo ...

Everyone knows that we have already elected our first black president.

From Wiki ...

In writing about the impeachment in 1998, Toni Morrison wrote that since Whitewater, Clinton had been mistreated because he "displays almost every trope of blackness: single-parent household, born poor, working-class, saxophone-playing, McDonald's-and-junk-food-loving boy from Arkansas." This phrase, "our first Black president," was taken out of context and adopted as a positive by Clinton supporters such as on September 29, 2001,when the Congressional Black Caucus honored the former president at its Annual Awards Dinner in Washington, DC., with the chair, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Tex.), telling the audience that Clinton "took so many initiatives he made us think for a while we had elected the first black president."
