The Southern Strategy — Perfected

Forty-Eight years of constant, hard work, finally come to fruition:

Barack Obama has a four-point lead over Mitt Romney, but that’s not nearly as dramatic as Obama’s lead among African American voters — 94 percent to 0 percent.

You cannot say the GOP hasn’t earned it.

Of course, the nature of the polling means that the zero is undoubtedly statistical noise. After all Romney has been shown to have a cadre of African-Americans that he flies around to special NAACP gatherings — and apparently they were not called, or were they? Once again Herman Cain sits alone at home waiting for the phone to ring.

The Heavy Cross We Bear



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
