One has to wonder what Colin Powell is up to. Endorsing Barack Obama this late in the game is no risk and of little use. Colin certainly doesn’t want to be Secretary of State again so why get behind Barack now?
Because he’s Black. Colin wants to be Black just the way Barack wants to be Black. Both have succeeded in a “white man’s world” despite, not because, they are Black.
Congratulations, Bros, you deserve each other.
The only “endorsement” this week that matters is not an endorsement at all.
Joe the Plumber hasn’t endorsed anyone. But he has asked a question.
And the Plumber’s Question got us some, brief, rare glimpse of honesty from a politician: Barack Obama wants the money from working men and women to assist those who have too little.
I, for one, object.
But You Gotta like that Black Socialist thinking.
God help us.
God Bless America.

Rush Limbaugh said Colin Powell’s decision to get behind Barack Obama appeared to be very much tied to Obama’s status as the first African-American with a chance to become president.
“Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race,” Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail. “OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I’ll let you know what I come up with.”
As for Powell’s statement of concern this morning about the sort of Supreme Court justices a President McCain might appoint, Limbaugh wrote: “I was also unaware of his dislike for John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia. I guess he also regrets Reagan and Bush making him a four-star [general] and secretary of state and appointing his son to head the FCC. Yes, let’s hear it for transformational figures.”
