The Therapy Sessions
Tuesday, July 13, 2004
I love listening to the NAACP act all surprised that the president sees it as a waste of time to talk to them, but I could not have put it any better than Jon Henke at Q and O: "We won't vote for you, now.....still:
You'll understand if it appears to me that Mfume is the one who would like to treat the President like a prostitute, smacking him around one day....then complaining that Bush won't come see him.
Well, if that's the way it works, I'm sending this letter to Mr Mfume through the NAACP website....
Dear Mr Mfume,
I'm sorry to see that you've become a race pimp, using your organization to leverage race for political advantage. Apparently, the equal rights movement--a noble cause--has become captured by special interest political advocacies. I hope that the African-American community can break free of these chains, too, and I hope that you will be recognized as part and parcel of this intellectual slavery.
By the way, you are cordially invited to dinner with my wife and I this Saturday.
So, what do you suppose the odds are he'll be joining us for dinner Saturday?
The odds are not good, Jon. Not good at all.
