Come on, Annie. As I noted in the comments below, Wright does have a formal role in the campaign—he’s a member of Obama’s African American Religious Leadership Committee. That is, as Ben Smith points out here, exactly “the sort of largely honorary, advisory body” that Ferraro served on as a member of Clinton’s finance committee. Much more on Wright here.

well, if ben smith points it out must be true! the person that does my taxes is largely honary too!

Yes, a finance committee member discounting obama because of his race is like the AARLC member saying that hillary doesnt have any of what the black person struggles with in america.

Are you really that bad at comparing two different things based on similarit

I am bored.

Everyone is starting from foregone conclusions about which candidate is better, and works backwards to find a supporting argument. No part of the controversy is genuine.

I don't even see the point of this boosterism anymore.

Next slog political post better talk about what a fucktard McCain is.

This isn't anything that can't be solved with a double-sided *****.

Please post about Hillary's tax records, specifically, where are they? And why is she hiding them if she has nothing to hide?

Dynasty slap fight in the Intertnational Fountain at Seattle Center at high noon tomorrow. Annie and ECB, make sure you wear some sexy, Nolan Miller designed evening wear and excessive make-up...

Why is it okay for me to call ECB a dickhead, but if I call Mr. Poe a cunt, it's sexist?

We will be investigating the Dems. It's illegal to have religious advisory committees for campaigns? Those churches should not receive tax-exempt status.

Also, Erica, you might want to look into the sermons and stances of some of those anti-gay black preachers supporting Clinton. You'd be stunned by their views.

Now, why don't you guys take a break from bickering about your sorry candidates, and help me select a great Republican for my VP spot. After all, he/she will be your President in 8 years.

Do they even make double sided dragon dice, Poe? And why not just flip a coin?

Posted by elenchos | March 13, 2008 3:53 PM

I wish this thread would come to a double-end.

Posted by nbc | March 13, 2008 3:58 PM

I doubt either of them have any coins to spare, elenchos. It could accidentally go down a vent. Or something.

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 13, 2008 4:02 PM

I trust we have this all settled then?


Posted by NapoleonXIV | March 13, 2008 4:07 PM

@8: Because you're not in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland. There you could use the word cunt in that way anytime you like.

Posted by Dave Coffman | March 13, 2008 4:09 PM

I'm part Scotch, part Irish, and on occasion, part Canadian Club.

Isn't that close enough?

Posted by NapoleonXIV | March 13, 2008 4:18 PM

No, you need to be part Grey Goose too. Or maybe a bit Cuban.
