The Shadow knows

Jonah, re that incisive insight by Deeppan Pizza, I would hate to have to do as much parenthesizing as PC liberalism requires. I loved this bit:

She is the reverse of Barack Obama, in essence his shadow… (Just to be perfectly clear, I am not making a verbal play out of the fact that Sen. Obama is black. The shadow is a metaphor widely in use before his arrival on the scene.) 

That’s true. Many years ago Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr sang “Me And My Shadow”. Oh, wait…

By the way, I’m no deep thinker but isn’t the metaphor he’s looking for not Barack’s shadow but Barack’s negative?
