Today’s Questions for the President

by Peter Kirsanow

Last weekend you spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus, in part, to maintain your support among black voters.

What evidence do you have that the preferred footwear of members of the Congressional Black Caucus is bedroom slippers?

At what point during your childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia did you adopt the speaking cadence of Al Sharpton?

Do you agree with Janeane Garafalo that some Republicans support Herman Cain “because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party”? Are Republicans who don’t support Herman Cain simply more honest racists?

Do you agree with Herman Cain that ”African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not considering a conservative point of view”?

What measurable benefits have accrued to black voters as a result of tendering 88 percent of their votes to Hubert Humphrey, 87 percent to George McGovern, 85 percent to Jimmy Carter, 88 percent to Walter Mondale, 86 percent to Michael Dukakis, 83–84 percent to Bill Clinton, 89 percent to Al Gore, 88 percent to John Kerry, and 95 percent to you?
