The moderator of tomorrow’s vice-presidential debate is writing a book to come out on the day the next president takes the oath of office that aims to “shed new light” on Democratic candidate Barack Obama and other “emerging young African American politicians” who are “forging a bold new path to political power.”
Gwen Ifill of the Public Broadcasting Service program “Washington Week” is promoting “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,” in which she argues the “black political structure” of the civil rights movement is giving way to men and women who have benefited from the struggles over racial equality.
Oh, and her book’s being released on inaguration day.
I wonder if she bothered to mention Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Justice Clarence Thomas.
Not very likely.
There is no evidence that the book will be favorable to the Democratic nominee.
Yeah, just like that survey with the SLIGHT Democrat bias.
It’s time for the GOP and people on the right to realize that – for now – the rules have changed. There is a whole ‘nother rulebook being used, and sitting around flapping the old rule book and whining “c’mon, guys, c’mmmmmmon,” is not going to get the game back on track.
John McCain needs to realize it today. So does Palin. We need to recognise it and begin to compete under these new rules, or just concede the game. John McCain needs to stop trying to act like a referee and start acting like the quarterback.
By the way, we’re outnumbered. Team Mainstream has all the heavyweights, the guards, the tackles and the microphones, too – so they call the plays the way they see them, regardless of what is actually happening. The spectators are eating pretzels and wondering if they’ll win the office pool, but they’re busy listening to the color commentary rather than watching the game with their own eyes.
How do we win? Maybe we can’t. Maybe things are too far gone. But I’m thinking McCain needs to make a very aggressive play, here – right now – to do or die.
The steamroller media is about to sack McCain – to flatten him before he ever gets the ball out of his hand – and Palin, the wide receiver, has a whole pack running right along side of her; they’re effectively blocking her from all sides.
Go read every word.
