Barack Obama will never be good enough, pure enough, or kiss up enough to become President of the United States. He just might win anyway; I hope so. Against the odds and against the rules. This post discusses only rule No. 1. Obama, or any Black presidential candidate must prove, not beyond a reasonable doubt, but beyond the faintest shadow of a doubt, that they detest, reject, abhor and revile Louis Farrakhan (I’m not a fan of his, for the record). However, a White presidential candidate, as in John McCain, and formerly Mike Huckabee, may not only accept but actively court the support of extremist preacher John Hagee of San Antonio, Texas. Hagee rants about gays and only a few pay attention, I suppose. But why would John McCain say that he actively embraces the support of Hagee, who has claimed that the Catholic Church conspired with Adolph Hitler to exterminate the Jews? And was there much outrage when Rudy Giuliani accepted the support of diamond exploitation evangelist Pat Robertson, who once described the United Methodist Church as the “spirit of the anti-Christ”? Candidates such as Obama have to keep their eye on the speedometer at all times. They have to know that their headlights and tailights are working properly. If not, then out comes the ticket. White candidates may get caught, but it will be for a wink and a warning.
