Obama/McCain 1: My Observations

*NOTE*:  This is my last post at this black life.  I’ve closed this blog.  Please find me and all of this gr8 content at my new blog: www.kdizo.wordpress.com


Issues:  Barack excelled on the economy, and expectations/vision for the future.  He held his own on foreign relations.  I’d have to say Barack won on the issues.

Suit:  I give the edge to Barack.  His suit was twice as shiny as McCain’s.

Sarcasm/Contemptuousness:  McCain gets the edge here – big time.

Skin Tone: Obama came out lookin all golden-bronze and shit.  McCain was his usual pastey white self.  Gotta give it to Obama.

Hair:  Again, Barack was strong in this category.  By the way his hair layed I could tell that he was rockin’ a doo-rag back stage.  Looked like he coulda used a fresh line, but other than that he looked good.  McCain’s hair was…  Barack wins.

Eye Blinks:  Both candidates blinked alot.  But there was somethin a little too twitchy and crack-headish about the way McCain blinked.  Obama blinked cooler/slower – like a pimp-wink-blink.  Slight edge to Barack here.

Pronunciation of Foreign Words/Names/Countries:  This is a key indicator of foreign policy experience, so I’m a bit surprised that McCain had such a hard time with Ahmadinejad and Perestroika.  Obama gets the nod here.

Rattled Off the Most Foreign Words/Names/Countries:  It’s a draw.  But again, considering McCain’s foreign policy experience, I was sure he’d blow away Obama here.  He didn’t.  So, a tie in this category is actually a win for Obama.  The “O” gets another one.

Voice:  McCain does something weird with his “S’s”.  The shit is annoying.  Barack wins on voice.

Lips:  McCain has no lips.  Barack’s lips look all extra-purple like he be smokin’ hella weed.  This is a toss up.

Capacity to Mis-Characterize: McSame McCain.

Capacity for Truth and Accuracy:  This one goes to Barack “The Truf(Truth)” Obama.

Eye Contact with the Opponent:  I don’t think Grandpa Simpson looked at Barack once during the entire debate.   That’s a tell-tell sign of weakness.  McCain lost his street-cred with that punk move.  Another one for Barack.

Those are my unbiased/objective professional observations.  You can decide for yourself who won Obama/McCain 1.


Larry King/Chris Rock Interview (link)…

Here’s an excerpt from last night’s Larry King/Chris Rock interview on CNN:

KING: You must be … proud that at this stage in our history a black man is running for president on a major ticket.

ROCK: Um, you know what? I’m proud Barack Obama’s running for president. You know? If it was Flavor Flav, would I be proud? No. I don’t support Barack Obama because he’s black.

Shabby Wit #2: Urinals…the long & short of it


Fellas!  You know how in public restrooms there is always one urinal that hangs lower than the others?  Ever wonder why that is?  Well, contrary to what you might think, its not for junior.  Nope.  Its actually for dudes with really long penises.  I’m sure most of you had no idea.



Random Joints #1: kidz and fast-food joints

My 1st post comes in the form of a tempered rant.  To all my parents out there with shorties under the age of 7: When you go to a Potbelly’s or Subway (or any fast-food joint), please don’t let your child/toddler tell the “sandwich artist” what ingredients/condiments to put on the sandwich. You know damn well shorty can’t handle that pressure yet.  More oft than not, kids in this situation just freeze up, or at best, they hold up the line while goin’ back and forth with moms/pops about what’s what on the condiment/ingredient menu.  That shit ain’t cute.  Look, I’ve got shorties.  I know what parents are trying to do here, but this is not the best occasion to teach your child how to be a big-boy or big-girl.  Do that on your own damn time.  Not in line at a FAST-food joint.
