"Get over the fact that you have a black president already." -- I find the underlying assumption behind this statement offensive as all get-out. Never once have I addressed the race of anyone whom I have either favored or opposed for any given political office - the categorization is irrelevent in assessing qualifications and positions and so forth. Besides, *is* Obama black just because his daddy's an African? Or is he white because his mother's white? I guess by the heniously racist "one drop rule" from early-1900s Virginia he *has* to be black. That to which I object is not his skin color (about which I care not) but his politics, policies, and intentions, which I find every bit as inimical to a Constitutional Republic as Dubya's.
