New York Newsday has hit on something important, I think, out of what we might have thought to be a trivial matter:
Anyone with even a vague sense of pop culture knows that Britney and Paris are yesterday's news. Here's a link to Forbes' Celebrity 100. Paris and Britney don't even make the list any more.

Instead, the top 10, in order: Oprah Winfrey, Tiger Woods, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce Knowles, David Beckham, Johnny Depp, Jay-Z, The Police, JK Rowling, Brad Pitt.

So, they didn't pick other big celebrities, who were either men, or black, or married.

What they picked was two sexually available white women.

But it must have been a coincidence, because we know John McCain wants to run an elevated campaign focusing on the serious issues that America faces.

This is one that could either be as deep as an ocean or shallow as a sink.

One could reasonably posit that McCain's camp knew exactly what they were doing, positioning Barack with two white women, a la "Harold - call me!", intimating that this big, virile John Shaft of a Presidential candidate was going to handle some business. I think that's going too far. I'm honestly of the opinion that these dolts on the McCain campaign don't know popular culture from a hole in the wall and simply screwed up, picking two readily known, but steadily less popular, stars.

Their biggest error was that those two women are largely famous for nothing. Obama's running for President of the United States - a bit different. Obama's record and his plan for this country deserve to be taken seriously by each voter, but it's plain that McCain would rather win than have a serious election, on serious issues.

You Obamanites are really anal retentive on your race issues. Obama jokingly compared himself to Hilton back in 2005.
"Andy Warhol said we all get our 15 minutes of fame," says Barack Obama. "I've already had an hour and a half. I mean, I'm so overexposed, I'm making Paris Hilton look like a recluse."

Ewww, how racist.
You need a few thousand more light bulbs before you are likely to shed light on any issues, but hey, so does your precious messiah.

How, exactly, does this add to the conversation?

You'll recognize, as I did when he made the statement, that he was joking there. McCain wasn't. And if your mind isn't able to wrap yourself around the notion that one symbol can be used for two very different ends, maybe you'd want to look up the history of the swastika in Hindu culture.

I read comments like yours on blogs all over the Internet. Then you accuse Obama supporters like myself of being cookie-cutter? Please. And after clicking on your blog, I feel the need to shower.

As for the lightbulbs, it seems you're too dim to understand the reference. Selah.

sweetie, I imagine you needed a shower before you ever fell out of your mother's misbegotten womb.

They were BOTH joking you tedious ass.

And I am quite pleased that you are repulsed by my site. Unlike your master Obama, I would find being appreciated by the morally repugnant and the mentally deficient extremely distasteful. Now please, don't let me divert you from your mental masturbation with Ellison.
