Quote of the Day

From a Philadelphia Inquirer column by Annette John-Hall:

“Sounds ridiculous, but Obama isn’t the only one being forced to validate his black card. Eagles quarterback McNabb, often criticized for not being street-tough enough, and mayoral candidate Michael Nutter, tagged as “Watermelon Man” by political wannabe T. Milton Street Sr., are vexed by the same image problem. That somehow acceptance by whites makes them suspect to blacks.”

Damn, I’d been planning to write a whole column on the many McNabb/Obama parallels. Maybe I still will.
