Super Phat Tuesday! Vote (for Obama)!!!

Since today is Fat Tuesday and Paczki day, you might want to indulge in a little celebration and nosh when you return from voting on this ever important SUPER TUESDAY.

Or, if you want to be a little more fired up as you go to the polls, check out Ken Rudin's article on NPR.org. In it, he breaks down the trickery and slickery engaged in by "Billary" as they attempted to cast Barack Obama's race, specifically his Blackness (not his Whiteness), as problematic. Rudin writes:

...politicians friendly to the Clinton campaign suddenly felt the need to remind us about some of the less savory aspects of Obama's past [...] To many observers, what these Clintonites were doing was obvious: deliberately raising these issues while feigning distress that the evil Republicans would bring it up should Obama become the nominee.

Also in December, Bob Kerrey, the former Nebraska senator, had this to say during a speech in which he endorsed Clinton: "I like the fact that his name is Barack Hussein Obama, and that his father was a Muslim and that his paternal grandmother is a Muslim. There's a billion people on the planet that are Muslims, and I think that experience is a big deal."

Kerrey denied any ulterior motives. Then came an anonymous campaign in which e-mails were sent out claiming Obama "is a Muslim," attended a "Wahabi" school in Indonesia, took his Senate oath on the Koran, and refuses to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. None of this is true.
