armchair cultural observation since 1995

Is it still October?


If I didn’t know better I would swear reading the news today that it’s still October 2008 and the most obnoxious presidential campaign season of our lifetime was still not over.

Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s famous former pastor, was again all over the news today for (get this) making an insensitive and racially charged remark that the haters will probably say somehow disqualifies Obama from being fit to be president (He sat in his pews for 20 years!!!).

But that’s not all. David Letterman said horribly mean and inappropriate things about Sarah Palin and her family that partisan haters on the left will probably figure out a way to spin into an anecdote about how dumb she is. (Haha. She said she could see Russia from her house. What an idiot).

Really, all that’s missing from today’s flashback to the fall news are headlines about Bill Ayers and Joe the Plumber. Oh wait, the always-reliable FOX News has a story about Jon Voigt criticizing Obama’s association with Ayers from yesterday and Joe is still going public with his tax revolt. My bad. It might as well still be October.
