So who's the racist?
HEY, STOP trying to confuse me! I began the week reading comments from such conservative Olympians as Limbaugh, Will and Buchanan (Pat, not James!) that the reason Colin Powell endorsed Obama was that - need I say more? - well, it was racially motivated. Both, in case you didn't know, are African-Americans who have doubtless shared a lot of time after hours in billiard parlors touting their bookies' latest odds on NBA games. Still, I must ask whether the same conclusion would apply to a retired white general who would endorse THAT WHITE ONE for president because he wanted the election to be in his own colorless comfort zone?
