Yes, I agree this thread is in poor taste. The vast majority of the world, and it would seem a massive majority of Americans, want Barack Obama elected president. He seems like the first grown-up, intelligent, down-to-earth, wise, thoughtful, and inspirational political figure to come out of that wretched shithole of a country in decades. He's on the verge of taking a historic election victory. But everybody knows what happens to people who speak of peace and unity and rise to positions of power and influence... They end up with a bunch of holes in them. Jesus, Ghandi, Lennon, Lincoln, Kennedy, Luther King... Obama has a target on his back the size of these blokes combined as he tries to wind down the war against the wishes of the military-industrial complex, and walk around being president with that darkish skin all over him. Like Eddie Murphy said, the first black president's going to have to be one agile dude to dodge all the redneck bullets. Barack's a pretty mean ball player and a fit bloke, how long do you think he'll last?
