Clinton as Rocky=Root for me to defeat a black man!

Am I the only person who feels that Clinton's "Rocky" analogy is racially tinged? The original Rocky is all about a white, working-class underdog who fights against a favored black man. We're supposed to root for Rocky because he's an underdog and he never quits, but the subtext is always there: we're supposed to root for Rocky because he's standing up for all of us white folks.

the white hero is paired up against a "motor-mouthed African-American punk who shows no respect for America." According to Queenan, the film said "exactly what White America wanted to hear: They're gifted but we work harder."

So, Senator Clinton, you're like Rocky? You're going to take down the Black Man? How quaint and progressive.

Jews for Obama

Hi everyone,

I'd like to apologize for the hiatus. I've been working pretty hard with the pro-Obama Jewish community. Basically, I woke up one day and realized how terrible the rhetoric was against Obama, particularly for Jews. I felt that there were attempts to drive wedges between Blacks and Jews, and that is something that I find particularly abhorrent.
I hope to return to blogging again soon, but in the meantime, check out our manifesto: it's at You can also get it by clicking on this link. Go go Jews for Obama!
