As Barack Obama’s supporters have made clear, only a “racist” would criticize or fail to support the post-racial, post-political Perfect Master. And yet, His path to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is already littered with a record number of political “corpses” of his most loyal supporters. If this is “beyond politics,” give me a smoke-filled room!
Grandma (white) The Rev. Dr. Jeremiah T. Wright Jr. (biracial) The Rev. Otis Moss III (black) Jim Johnson (white)
Who will be the next inductee?
The Hon. Rev. Dr. Sen. James Meeks? (black) The Hon. Sen. Emil Jones? (black) Distinguished professor Bill Ayers? (white)
All members get a t-shirt saying, “Barack Obama threw me under the bus, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!”
I say, the Hon. Rev. Dr. Sen. Meeks goes next. Although he’s a Democrat, he is just so not with the program, as far as gay marriage is concerned. Four years ago, I wrote that although Obama then claimed to oppose gay marriage,
The only recognizably Christian position Obama takes is his opposition to same-sex marriage, due to the “religious connotations” of marriage. (“Religious connotations”? What about “civic religion”; the “separation of church and state”; the “enormous danger on the part of public figures to rationalize or justify their actions by claiming God's mandate”? Don’t ask.) This is surely due to the fact that blacks are the racial/ethnic group most adamantly opposed to same-sex marriage, and Obama does not want to rile the one voter bloc on which his candidacy is most dependent. However, I would expect his position on same-sex marriage to begin “evolving” around, say, … November 3 . Once Obama is safely ensconced in the U.S. Senate, he knows that his black base will stick by him, for richer or for poorer, for better or for worse. Then he will doubtless begin the sort of “education” of the Christian black electorate in matters of same-sex marriage, which black leaders earlier conducted in the matter of abortion.
And sure enough, his evolution complete, he now supports gay marriage, in whatever deliberate disguises, just as he knew he would four years ago, according to his time table, in order to secure the support of gay Democrats and their friends. And the Hon. Rev. Dr. Sen. Meeks can’t keep his mouth shut, either. Whereas the late Jerry Falwell, whose demise white leftists publicly cheered, distinguished between the sinner and the sin, the Hon. Rev. Dr. Sen. Meeks does not. But then, unlike the Republican Falwell, the Hon. Rev. Dr. Sen. Meeks is a black Democrat, and thus can do whatever he damned well pleases.
Initially, some Obamanoids who didn’t get the memo may reflexively deny that the Hon. Rev. Dr. Sen. Meeks is a close Obama ally, as “libertarian” Daniel Koffler ludicrously did, in opposition to me (“Barack Obama Does Not Have To Apologize For James Meeks”; see Michael Weiss’ refutation here), but then The Master will give a signal, and still Koffler, et al. ‘I never heard him say those things. I had no idea that he held such intolerant beliefs, which I categorically reject.’
The next inductee will likely be "distinguished professor" (which is apparently academese for “domestic terrorist”) Bill Ayers. Why? Because he’s white. Black voters will already be restive over His having inducted three blacks into the club, and will demand some white meat.
By this time, Republican opposition researchers should have dug up sufficient dirt on the Hon. Sen. Emil “Steak” Jones’ corrupt machinations to go public. Jones was Obama’s political mentor, and the man who, more than anyone else, made him a U.S. Senator, so you know that it’s only a matter of time before The Master throws him under the bus.
After that, it’s got to be someone white or Asian. Reader Bill Baar suggests Illinois Gov. Rod “Blago” Blagojevich.
He's an Obama super delegate and now with [white Obama real estate patron and Chicago developer-fixer Antonin “Tony“] Rezko convicted and key Democrat Majority Leader Mike Madigan talking impeachment, we may see Obama take Madigan's warning and through the Gov under the bus too.
The impeachment talk divides the Democratic party in Illinois. At some point Obama will have to take a stand on it (I would think)... Blagojevich is a super delegate for Obama (as is Meeks) and it would seem odd to have an elected offical under impeachment hearings, leading the delegation.…
Obama will need a fleet of buses.
Once Obama is through with the aforementioned names, it’s anyone’s guess who goes next. The only Obama ally who is safe is Michelle “Mama” Obama.
