Cut That Zero, Get With This Hero

Is Barack "The Professor" Obama starting to get jiggy with it?

Could he possibly have Doug E. Fresh's Greatest Hits on his IPod?

In the picture above, Obama could be signaling a lot of things. But if you have a multi-track mind like I do, one that can go off in ten directions at the drop of an absentee ballot, you might get the idea he's trying to show us:

  • The number of percentage points McCain and Palin increased in the polls today.

  • The number of grandchildren Obama expects to have before his daughters finish college.

  • The amount Joe The Plumber's taxes will go up on the income he ACTUALLY earns.

  • The size of John McCain's eyeballs when Obama told his opponent how much money HIS campaign raised in September.

  • The sum total of all the game changing ideas the McCain campaign has left.

  • The total quantity of mooseburgers Obama will ever eat in his life.

  • The number of text messages Obama has sent Rev. Jeremiah Wright this year.

  • The amount of times Obama has considered "suspending" his campaign.

  • The size of Jessie Jackson's ego after he was recorded saying he wanted to "cut Obama's nuts off".

  • The number of times Obama wished he'd chosen Hillary Clinton as his running mate.

  • The total quantity of bombs Obama helped William Ayers build and detonate.

  • The number of terrorist cells Obama heads up.

  • The amount of times Obama has had sex with Larry Sinclair

  • The number of aides Obama needs to help him navigate the internet.

  • The amount of chittlins Obama intends to keep stocked in the White House kitchen.

Now I'm sure his gesture was in response to something more serious, like the amount he plans to raise taxes on the middle class, or the number of times he voted for the war in Iraq, but with all this repetition of these talking points about the ISSUES, my mind has become the devil's workshop.

November 5th can't get here soon enough.


  1. That's really ingenius, Brown Man! Love this post.

  2. From Dreams of My Father:'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'

    From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'

    From Dreams of My Father:'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'

    From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'

    From Dreams of My Father:'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'

    And FINALLY the Most Damning one of ALL of them!!!

    From Audacity of Hope:'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'

    go ahead, vote Obama. It is your conscious.

  3. The name of this blog is BROWN MAN Thinking Hard.

    So I personally don't finding anything to be "damning" about the statements you point out.

    In fact, as a fellow writer, I applaud him for putting that much of the unvarnished truth about how he really felt as a mixed race teenager, one who had to come to terms with how his "otherness" was perceived by the white people around him.
