Peace, Brother !!
By now, you've read about Barack Obama's boo-boo with Pennsylvanians. Earl left an interesting comment, stating that as the campaign goes along, we are finding out more about Obama, and he may be a severly damaged candidate by the time the Democratic Convention comes around. Like most candidates, the more you find out about them, the more you realize they are politicians. And it made me think of something similar.....
Looking at Obama more closely, you see the thinness of his campaign, and maybe that good speeches and slogans aren't enough. My first thought was the scene from 'My Cousin Vinny', when Ralph Macchio (he's been on the blog a lot lately) is ready to drop Vinny for the Public Defender. I've added the clip here for you to see, and judge if this clip has more than it's original meaning.
You only have to watch the first 2 1/2 minutes of the clip - forget the rest. You will also need to switch certain words in it. Switch the following words. DA and Public Defender are now Obama. Brick is now candidacy. All the rest are the same. It makes a strong case that voters aren't really looking are Obama's campaign on it's real merits, but what is LOOKS LIKE. Check it out, and then decide. Maybe Vinny is smarter than we thought - and Obama isn't.
