Why do I worry Obama's forgotten this lesson?
P.S.: There are plenty of potential Souljahs still around: Race preferences. Out-of-wedlock births. Three strike laws! But most of all the victim mentality that tells African Americans (in the fashion of Rev. Wright's most infamous sermons) that the important forces shaping their lives are the evil actions of others, of other races. ...
P.P.S.: I've stolen the Early Souljah idea from an analysis I read the week of Obama's 2004 speech--I forget who wrote it. 1:32 A.M. link

Paging Rush ... : McCain seems to say Republicans lost Hastert's House seat because of the "very strong anti-iimmigrant rhetoric" of GOP candidate Jim Oberweis. ... P.S.: On Hannity, McCain says:
I would have the border state governors certify that their borders are secure. Americans will trust the border state governors. They won't trust us in Washington. That's the message. [E.A.]
Do you trust the border state governors? I don't trust the border state governors. Does McCain really think "Americans" will? He must. Remember, this isn't a gimmick designed to get him through the election--to accomplish that, he only has to say he'll secure the borders first, period. This is a gimmick designed to let him shift to pushing for an illegal immigrant legalization bill shortly after he's actually elected. He wouldn't bring it up at all unless that's what he planned to do. ... P.S.: Note that McCain again ducks Hannity's question on whether he'd "sign McCain-Kennedy today," lending credence to those who thought his apparent concession on the subject in the January Reagan library debate was a misstatement. ... 4:03 P.M. link
Maybach, kaput? Maybe the rich are not getting richer fast enough. Or maybe it was hideous. Or both. ... 3:37 P.M.
