Anybody who looks at this picture and cries is a total opportunistic tone-deaf sob.

Someone referred me to The Onion today without warning, so thought I'd pass it on since I'm kind of an asshole:

I love how Obama has the brother's fist jab AND the White Man Overbite. It's beautiful.

The horror! The horror!

That kinda looks like Darcy Burner's kid.

Cute pic. Meh.

Man, I wish I lived somewhere besides CA. Talk about having the joy sucked out of the room. I feel like Bush just won again. Prop 8 sucks.

Wow, I never realized Teddy Kennedy was so short.

Wait a minute. Is our new president holding a newspaper? In the manner in which people who read newspapers hold them? Freaky.

Posted by skweetis | November 5, 2008 6:30 PM

That's not just a newspaper. That's a Wall Street Journal. You know, the paper that people who actually understand economics often read so that they can keep track of trends as they develop. (That would be people who don't proclaim that the fundamentals are sound when the financial world is crashing around their ears.)

When that kid is 93 and breathing oxygen in a tent, he will look over at that picture every once in a while, and think of all the people who asked him about it during his long life.

Posted by Rain Monkey | November 5, 2008 9:28 PM

Who *is* the kid? Who took the pic? Where are they? When are they?

Posted by idaho | November 5, 2008 9:45 PM

The little boy is the son of one of President Elect Obama's (I love wrting that) election team.

Posted by Malcolm In Sydney | November 5, 2008 9:54 PM

@19 & 20 (idaho & Malcolm In Sydney): In particular, I believe he's David Plouffe's (President-Elect Obama's (you're right, Malcolm) campaign manager) son.

This picture is great.

I realize that the SLOG readership here is mainly over 30 yrs old, so let me break the news to you guys: FIST JAB IS NOT COOL!
It is for brothers on the streets. It is not for posers.

Posted by young jung | November 6, 2008 9:01 AM

I usually try not to pay attention to morons - but what's with some of the fucking people who have left comments on here?

-"total opportunistic tone-deaf sob" (what does that even mean
-"terrorist fist jab" (give me a break!)
-"For shame!!!"
-"The horror! The horror!"
And some douchebag calling himself "Prop 8"

What the fuck is the matter with you people? I mean, really. Please tell me that you're joking.
Oh, and for those both under and over 30, there is nothing wrong with the "fist jab thing". People have been doing that shit for years now. Not just "brothers on the streets". Get with it and then shut the fuck up.
