“The fact that I’m raising obscene amounts of money for this presidential race doesn’t make me a hypocrite.”
— Barack Obama, on his still-undisclosed fundraising, AP, 4/3
Color me mystified with the lag time between Hillary’s announcement and the impending, yet delayed announcement from the Obama camp regarding his numbers. With over 100,000 contributions from over 80,000 folk, we know full well that Barack ain’t got nothin to be ashamed of. Hillary has had her moment and now the time has come to steal her thunder and dethrone the Queen. Will we hear from the messiah today before the close of business, or will the Safe Negro drag this mess out for yet another news cycle?
This extended lag has me imagining some improbably colored scene in which Barack is holed up in some dingy room holding his fundraisers hostage while he and Michelle count every dollar like black folks running a liquor house.
