My Racist Ex-Girlfriend Was Right!

Last year about this time, a woman I was dating warned me not to support Obama over Hillary Clinton. "Don't vote for him," she whispered, "he'll only help his own kind." I laughed it off and broke up with her over that and other issues, but today I read this.

The following comes from the official Friday schedule for President Obama, which was just released by the White House.

Later in the afternoon, the President and the First Lady will attend a reception with the National Newspaper Publisher Association in the State Dining Room, where they will be presented the Newsmaker of the Year award. This event is closed press.
Not sure whether to laugh or cry.

UPDATE: Actually, not as outrageous as it seems: I am advised by the White House that exclusive access was granted to the NPPA, a 67-year-old federation of more than 200 black community newspapers, on terms similar to the access granted regularly to lots of media organizations for exclusive interviews. The organization or its members are expected to make a record of the event.
So maybe she was right? I don't know. It's not like this is such a huge event or anything. Still, the people demand to know the truth! Why can't Joe the Plumber do a remote for this?

So you type with 5 fingers and an elbow?

When she said "his own kind", did she maybe mean Liberals?

Danielk said...

What are you saying, that Hillary isn't liberal? It would explain why Ann Coulter endorsed her.

Publius said...

You can type with five fingers? I use two.

wamk said...

She wasn't the most Liberal member of the Senate.

Publius said...

Yeah, Obama was far more liberal than Hillary!

Danielk said...

Actually I agree with you, but the ex was liberal too. I suppose she could have been warning me that he'd be putting through tax breaks for Hawaiians or Mulattos.

Or Hawaiian Mulattos, which would be such a small group as to constitute a statistical anomaly.
