November 4, 2008

I've tried not to focus too much on the racial issues in this election, mostly because I don't think anyone should vote for a person based on their skin color. But this is obviously a momentous time when our multicultural nation has finally elected someone other than an old white guy as our leader. I thought the illustration above by Patrick Moberg did a nice job of showing how America has truly been rebranded. It also shows that it's been a while since we've had a prez with any cool facial hair. Click image to enlarge.

Chris Rock had some great stand-up this year on race and the election...

And as Tracy Morgan so eloquently put it, "Black is the new president, bitch."

As he seems so sure that McCain has 6 toes already in the grave, I sincerely hope then that Chris speaks with Barack about his incessant smoking habit which, no by the way, he hasn't managed to quite shake yet in spite of all best efforts to hide it from the public. It would be a real shame if such a young man suffered from cancer while in the oval office.
