After watching the mindless and nearly flawless runaway train travel film Unstoppable, I've decided to oppose Barack Obama for purely racist reasons.
He's just not black enough for my personal prejudices. I generally prefer my leaders (and my women) like my coffee: strong and dark. As a university professor, I get plenty of fine Anglo-saxon analysis and talk, talk, talk. I was happy to see a half black / half white president, hoping he might be a cool guy of few words and much action capable of jumping in front of an impending economic-train-wreck like Denzel Washington in Unstoppable. Yet, in speech after dull speech, his far-too-white ass has droned on and on unstoppably. (As far as I know, Barack is a devoted husband and father, which makes him a real action hero, whatever his shortcomings.)
If Mr. Washington declines to go to Washington, I'll support his Unstoppable supporting actress: Meagan Tandy. She isn't a strong man of action, but if she should drone on and on in speech after speech, it'd be the privilege of every red-blooded American to watch those speeches (whether with the TV volume on or off). Tandy! Tandy! What a dandy! Real solutions plus eye candy!
