There are six days left before Election Day, and still the newshole hungers for picayune nonsense from the trail. Thus, we have this report from Lynn Sweet, live from GAMECHANGERSHIRE:
Barack Obama seemed to mix up black television sitcoms "Sanford and Son" and "The Jeffersons" in a speech Wednesday, where he was making the point that if Social Security had ever been privatized--as Republicans tried to do a few years ago, folks invested in the stock market would have been whacked with giant losses because of the economic meltdown.
"Can you imagine if you had your Social Security invested in the stock market these last two weeks, these last two months.
You wouldn't need Social Security. You'd be having a, ya know like Sanford and Sons, 'I'm coming Weezy."
One of George Sanford's signature lines was 'I'm coming Elizabeth."
Weezy was the nickname for Louise Jefferson.
Indeed! Why won't Barack Obama COME CLEAN about his inability to keep beloved African-American sitcom characters and the women whose names they cry out in anguish straight in his mind? Obviously, now John McCain will become Lord Of Us All, and shall rule over our subprime junkyard hovels, making our earmarks famous.
Since McCain's running mate would be the "Lamont" in this scenario, I shall now yield the balance of my time to Black Sarah Palin, for comment.
