Folks, excuse me if I make even more typos than I usually do tonight. I am still a little winded from riding my exercise bike in preparation for my little au natural Broad Street run. Was it me or did Halloween come a couple of weeks early this year? Mr. Morton, what the fuck? I watched the debate on CNN and they had a split screen up the entire time. Honestly, Mr. Morton scared the shit out of me. That man is seriously becoming unhinged. I swear if his eyes bulge anymore they will pop out of his head. The man looked like he had a helium pump in his suit. Poor Bob Shieffer. I bet he was seriously contemplating ending that bad boy a little early for fear of his life.
Forget pumpkins this Halloween, how about a Mr. Morton likeness in every window?
Now his O ness didn't do anything earth shattering. He was his usual cool self. A little too much smiling for the kid. But I get it; A-merry-ca likes their black men to be smiling. Mr. Morton, of course, was his usual salty self. But then he could afford to be. A-merry-ca is used to grumpy old white men. In fact, we kind of like them.
But it was bad for Mr. Morton tonight. The poor guy is desperate and it showed. You know you are having a bad night when your best line is a slip of the tongue. When he called the O man "Senator Government" I had to really check to see if it was a planned line or not. That was classic. But down playing the health of a woman on the abortion issue, and saying that the average cost of health care is $5,800 per person, were gaffes that he won't be able to come back from. "Sweep out the old boy network"? Mr. Morton, have you looked in a mirror lately?
But O man I have to give it to you, you are one cool character. Always disciplined, aways sticking to your talking points. How you resisted taking a shot at the beauty queen, I have no idea. But you did. When you slammed FOX NEWS, you got me. (FOX NEWS, isn't that an oxymoron?) I would have called the debate for your ass if you sang "Mary Had a Little Lamb" the rest of the night.
So go ahead on Obamaholics, with your bad selves. I guess this will be a "Yes We Can Night" for you all. Thank goodness Mrs. Field is an Obamaholic, because this will be a "yes we can night" for the kid as well. :) Thank you O man!
