wow wow and wow. Has anyone not seen the stats showing that Dems with post-college (ie MA or PHD) education are all going for Obama while those with a high school education are Clinton people?

All this "it's just rhetoric" or "it's a cult" crap is just crap. Hillary is much more self-centered and ambitious and narcissistic than Obama and the fact of how patently obvious that is can be studied in her rhetoric.

So, suddenly, the man says "It's not about me. It's about you," so we accuse him of making it about him? We love him because he's smart enough and generous of spirit enough to know it's not about him.

Is that Christ-like, King-like, and Kennedy-like. Of course it is. Is this a bad thing?

Tonight, more than 20,000 showed up to see him at the same arena where the Houston Rockets play.

Meanwhile, Hillary packed a high school in Ohio.

Obama looked presidential tonight.

Meanwhile MSNBC poll says 2/3 of the people want Hillary to drop out.

Stark.

I laughed my butt off at a bumpersticker I saw today:

"OBAMA

(Come and peel my banana)"

:lol:

I might be missing something obvious here, but the only allusion I can think of with this is the black people = monkeys thing. Even if that's not what it intends, the fact that it can be interpreted that way is not good.

I think "banana" meant something different... and nothing related to the monkeys.

Don't overreact, dude.

How long is Obama going to talk? It's going on 40 minutes. :rolleyes:

Why don't you change the channel?

It's what I do anytime I see Bush, for example.

I'm just waiting for it to be over.

And I'm praying that he'll finally explain what "change" and "hope" and "unity" mean. :shrug:

U2@NYC 02-19-2008 10:18 PM

I agree. These speeches are a little tiring.

Politicians have mastered the art of not saying anything at all and yet speak for 2 hours...

U2democrat 02-19-2008 10:19 PM

It's beautiful, but he does need to wrap it up.

My first thought was the sexual connotation, but I can totally see the bumper sticker being bought or sold with the intent being the racist interpretation as well.

I got the sexual connotation as well, but I didn't see any particular connection between Obama and banana as opposed to other sexual words that could be used, so I didn't find it very clever, and was searching for some sort of pun or something.

At least you have TV. I never get tired of listening to him talk. Sorry.

Check this on topic piece:

So far, I have only found 2 minutes of the speech on YouTube.

the exact opposite of what Bush means when he says "terror" and "evildoers" and "we just built too many houses."
