I’m driving home yesterday, and I turned the radio on. I happened to be listening to WJR, which had the Mitch Albom Show on.
If you’ve read one of my previous posts, you know how little I think of Mitch Albom. He’s a liberal. He’s also a dolt.
Anyway, so he’s going on about how we all have to come together to support Barack (The Nazarine) Obama’s presidency (a subject that I will touch-on in another post), and how certain people – namely: Rush Limbaugh – were predictable in their partisan attitude. Basically, and I’m paraphrasing here, Mitch said that “real Americans” are coming together to support Barack Obama.
Nice, eh? Now, people like me aren’t real Americans. I guess this qualifies as a member of the media questioning my patriotism?
Putting that aside, his real interest was how black people were so enthralled with the fact that Barack Obama is going to be President of the United States; something what (as he put it) white people couldn’t really understand. Albom claimed that white people are curious over the black reaction to an Obama presidency.
As a white person, the reaction didn’t surprise me at all. And I’m happy to explain this phenomena to Mr. Albom, though I don’t think he’s going to like my analysis of this condition.
