Pookie and Ray-Ray Get Out the Vote
As our first "post-racial" Presidential candidate, Barack Obama is nevertheless speaking the language of his constituency in South Carolina.
Thursday morning in Kingstree, a city in the low country of South Carolina, he spoke to a mostly African-American audience of about 1,000.
Mr. Obama made this plea to those in attendance: "I need you not only to vote, but I need you to get cousin Pookie to vote. I need Ray-Ray to vote."
In a related story, Hillary Clinton was briefly seen in Boca Raton, FL, pitching her tales of innocence and experience to an audience made up solely mannequins and discarded laptops. "Bleep bop zorg zapp zort waaaaaa neep," she entreated.
