...or Why Sebellius will not be Obama's running mate
A picture does indeed say a thousand words, and there's one picture that would say a thousand (or more) very UNKIND words in this bigotted country:
Imagine the uproar in KKK territory if Mr. Black Man and Ms. White Woman appear like this on a consistent basis. Imagine what the Rovian repugs will do to stir up the bigotry against the uppity black guy who presumes to take a white woman by the hand.
If you think the repugs are cranking out the "fear the black man!" at a high rate now, just imagine what would happen if this team appeared on the dem ticket.
But goddamn, don't they look great together!? I'm sad that this thought even crossed my mind, but as I was driving to work the other day, I thought about Obama and Sebellius, standing together in that co-champions/hands-in-the-air way, and it hit me--as I drove through my rural Pennsylvania valley.
What do you think will happen? Is it going to be Joe Biden? Tim Kaine (whoever he is)? Sebellius?
