Now, Bellini ain’t nobody’s fool—the latest polls have Obama up by 14 points per CNN. I talked to two different people last night and one guy heard he’s up by 12 points and another woman heard 10 points. Something in the milk ain’t right. Although, I never was surprised about the strength of Barack’s candidacy—he’s still a black man and for him to command these numbers when race is still the humongous elephant in the room ain’t settling right with me. Either pollsters aren’t asking the right questions or they aren’t probing for the right answers. It is evident that there is a solid electorate that won’t pull the lever or touch the screen for a brotha. However, this same electorate that won’t vote for a brotha hasn’t really indicated what they will do on election day. See, many of them already feel Obama will win and that maybe cause for some of them to stay home hallelujah! And eventhough that is wishful thinking on my part, since day 1 I’ve expressed that this election will be close. But like Michelle Obama told urban radio a few weeks ago, this election can’t be close – it’s got be a decisive win. Either Barack wins or he doesn’t, nothing muddled in between.
And trust me, McCain is definitely helping Team Barack by resurrecting ol’ business. This Ayers stuff is old news, but you can count on the GOP to resort to their tactics. There’s just one problem with executing that plan – it’s the economy stupid! White folks could care less if the brotha was the boogeyman. Perhaps, I should have George Will expound on it...
"This, McCain and his female Sancho Panza say, is demonstrated by bad associations Obama had in Chicago, such as with William Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist. But the McCain-Palin charges have come just as the Obama campaign is benefiting from a mass mailing it is not paying for. Many millions of American households are gingerly opening envelopes containing reports of the third-quarter losses in their 401(k) and other retirement accounts -- telling each household its portion of the nearly $2 trillion that Americans' accounts have recently shed. In this context, the McCain-Palin campaign's attempt to get Americans to focus on Obama's Chicago associations seems surreal -- or, as a British politician once said about criticism he was receiving, "like being savaged by a dead sheep."
And if you know me, you know that George Will can get my blood boiling at times, but in his op-ed piece McCain in a Bear Market – he got it right.So, with less than 3 weeks out it’s about to get ugly. So, tune in tonight, be’cuz surely tonight will be the barometer for the madness that we will ensue in the coming weeks.
