I am outraged. I now detest Barack Obama for having the arrogance to be elitist when he has absolutely nothing to be elitist about. But at the very moment I start to feel this way, the Anti-Obamists accuse him of giving Hillary a covert finger.
He did nothing of the sort. That doesn't mean that the comment in which he scratched his face with his middle digit wasn't noteworthy, because the more meaningful gesture came when he brushed his shoulder as an indication of complete dismissal with regard to Hillary (not that she doesn't richly deserve it).
People should understand that Obama's dandruff gesture is really about how he feels toward everything and everyone who disagrees with his positions. He's so filled with contempt that he has no regard for you whatsoever, and believe me, I know whereof I speak.
But the difference between Obo and me is that I'm where I deserve to be, and he's already enormously exceeded his abilities, and he has for exactly the reason Geraldine Ferraro said he has – because he's black. he's the Great Black Hope.
In the extremely unlikely situation where some white fool could have ascended to where Obama now stands, he'd certainly be finished at this point after having said the sort of incredably stupid and condescending things Obama has said… although to be truthful, any white guy who bowled a thirty-seven would never be able to show his face in public again, anyway.
