DEAR SENATOR OBAMA...
Everytime I'm convinced I should get on your bandwagon, you say or do shyt like this that forces me to think twice as to whether or not you're up for the job of POTUS.
When you praise the neocons who laid the groundwork for the economic situation that continues to screw over the poor to give to the rich; when you praise those who tell people of color, by their words, actions and deeds, that we are worth a damn; and especially when you continue to play nice with pit vipers and rattlesnakes in the hope they won't revert to their true natures and play nice, you keep convincing me that you're not up for the job.
Nevermind that House Negroes are beating you up - you don't help yourself when you give them ammunition like you did in that YouTube video.
How long do I have to see you shoot yourself in the foot, reload and continue shooting? Even Dead-Eye Dick Cheney hit his target - intentional or unintentional, we might never know.
I've already written about how you seemed to be a triangulating twit, inexperienced, and how your campaign seemed to be ran by the Keystone Kops. But somehow, you managed to right the ship and get it done in Iowa, followed by a strong finish in New Hampshire.
Then the Borg Queen decided to fire an arsenal of race clips, carefully concealed in code-words. Her trouble? She didn't count on "Gentleman" Jim Clyburn to call her and the Big Dog on the carpet for it. When you piss off the third ranking member of Congress who could practically deliver African-American Southern voting blocks to you on a gold platter, you know you've crossed the line.
Senator, you took the high road, and by doing so, you pushed the Borg Queen into a ditch, tore the covers off, and exposed her for the tool that she is. The white voters she counted on to cower in fear told her to her face that engaging in race-baiting was turning them off and driving them to consider you or John Edwards.
In other words, the shyt blew up in her face. She had to reverse course. And if she cries again, on cue, that might make everyone outside of New Hampshire suspicious enough to pass on her again. Eventually, you're gonna have to talk about race relations in this country, and what you might want to do to improve them if you got POTUS; but that's a battle you will be better equipped to handle if you can corral your impulse to self-implode.
But, that YouTube clip is not encouraging. In fact, I feel like a woman who had a man continue to promise he'd change, and then, once you're back in the fold, you revert to the same behavior that made me quit you in the first place.
Unlike Jack Twist in "Brokeback Mountain" I DO know how to quit you. In fact, it will be real simple. What was difficult for me was giving you consideration over the Borg Queen because she never had my consideration - given that she believes the POTUS should be hers by entitlement.
Let's be real; how serious are you about wanting the office of POTUS? I think you're deadly serious. So, stop with the self-annihilation, okay? Regardless of my supporting you or not, it is very painful to see you keep injuring yourself like this. Anyone else would have had the keys taken from them a long time ago...
