The Audacity Of Hope...
The AUDACITY of Senator Obama...thinking he could go on LIVE television for a national presidential debate and NOT be called "THAT ONE"?
I mean really, what was he thinking???
I am being SO sarcastic - I am reeling!!!
Having to put to bed a 12 year old colored male child who had to watch the debate for class, all while explaining to him that ~ I'm sure Senator McCain misspoke and did not mean anything by the condescending remark ~ could leave one to be just a tad bit sarcastic. Deep in my heart, once the words left Senator McCain's lips and he flung his hand gesturing pompously, it became painfully certain that what he really wanted to call him was "boy", or any derivative within the GOODOLEBOY'S dictionary!
I watched, as I do, on CSpan, so I will have to wait until the morning to see if America even caught this wild exclamation.
CSpan offered no immediate pundit commentary, though I was so angry I threw the remote thus turning the tv(tonight it is an idiot box!) off.
Maybe my household is overreacting. Maybe we are lost in a viscious time warp OR flashback of Vintage TV and this is a "Twilight Zone" episode.
Before sitting down to my keyboard, I became overwhelmed by a realization that Senator McCain would have never addressed another senator in that tone, or any other colleague, or joesixpack for that matter. How odd to use this forum to declare that he really has a superiority complex.
If you notice, I have never written an ill word or remark regarding Senator McCain ~ after all, he is a servant and war hero. However, this really poked at my decency barometer. All I can retrieve from this debate is that if this is how far we've come, then nothing in this election matters because once again, it is all about the brutal history of our ancestors and how we have done nothing about it. Absolutely nothing.
