Sen Obama once again stepped into the race issue on Thursday (see previous post) and I can’t help but be reminded of Seinfeld every time someone tries to discuss race in this election.
Here is how I would envision the latest discussion of Sen Obama’s racial remark:
Reporter: “Sen Obama said that he doesn’t look like the other Presidents on our money, once again raising the fact the he is black, (not that there is anything wrong with that). How do you respond to his comment? ”
Obama spokesperson: ” Well he just meant that he doesn’t wear a wig, not that there is anything wrong with folically challenged individuals. If you look back you’ll see President Bush’s economic policies have caused people to forget what money looks like and only the rich can survive another Bush term.”
McCain spokesman: “Sen McCain doesn’t wear a wig either but if it will help him get his message across he will certainly wear one! And how did Bush come up again? Sen Obama might want to remember who he is running against and focus on the real issues facing Americans today.”
