How Historic is It?

My brother sent me a link to this AP article about black conservatives who are going to vote for Obama. For example, black conservative talk show host Armstrong Williams says, “I don’t necessarily like his policies; I don’t like much that he advocates, but for the first time in my life, history thrusts me to really seriously think about it.”.

Yeh, de colored, dey all votin’ fer Obama. As a Welsh/German/Scot married to an Irish/God knows what/Injun, I am not at all sure who I should vote for. McCain is Irish of course, which is a plus, but Obama’s mother is Irish/British, so I’m torn.

I guess I should just follow the lead of my black conservative brothers and sisters, and go strictly by skin color. Obama is pretty white, but he can’t really compete with McCain on that score. That settles it. I’m voting for John McCain.
