UNCLE TOM'S CABIN

I couldn't believe it.

Let me explain:

I was working today with an African-American mother and daughter; and being the loud New Yorker that I am, I chatted nonstop about politics and the race for the White House. Of course, I thought I was with "family", so I sang my praises for Obama - but my choir wasn't singing back.

Hmmm....I thought - something's not right here - I better shut up and just paint this puss and be done with it. Later I learned that mother and daughter were both old daddy McCain supporters.

I mean, they were both very nice, but do they live in Uncle Tom's cabin? Don't they know that old daddy McCain voted against a national Martin Luther King holiday? Not to mention that the majority of southern Republicans believe that the Civil War was a just war.

I don't get it.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. Such venom from the looney left. Do you not preach tolerance for all thought? Or is that only for YOUR thought?

Either way, I love the fact that you're so easily riled. That's another point for us good guys!
