The writer’s epiphany is nice and all that (which is personal to him and anybody who happens to have seen the same light); but I’ve got a couple of other biggies that I find serendipidous about Baraq’s candidacy. 1) Who else could have unhorsed the hildebeeste? Absolutely NO ONE. For that, I thank him. 2) Who else could have put the marxist strand of the black poverty-pimping industry under the scrutiny it is getting? Not another soul.

I’ve bet $1000 on it at +180 (i.e., WHEN McCain wins, I’ll be paid my $1000 back, plus $1800 more).
I really hope you are right. Obama has everything going for him right now except for the perception among those paying attention that he is an America-hater. The problem may be that too few have been paying attention.
