What's going down my people-united-will-never-be-defeated?
It's been an eventful past few weeks.
Hillary Clinton attacked Barack Obama for wanting to be president when he was in kindergarten. So much for encouraging black children to dream! Screw that little chilluns, just hope to be a rapper or ball player so the big bad calculating witch of the east doesn't smear you 40 years later.
Oprah opened for Obama at a stadium in South Carolina. It was a beautiful thing to see, and Oprah was in top form giving the people what they wanted. She screamed and pointed, "Everybody look under your seats and check out your NEW. BLACK. PRESIDEEEEEEENT!!! And YOU get a black president! And YOU get a black president..." It was beautiful.
Alan Keyes thinks he's still running for president.
And I haven't been fired from the Onion yet. Good times all around.

I continue to wear out the keys on my keyboard with word production. Here are some of the things worth seeing.
My Last Weekly Dig Column.
That's right. I'm retiring from the Dig. It's pretty hard to write a regular column for a Boston paper when you live in NYC. I tried.
Andrew Young, I Hereby Revoke Your Black Card
I'm really sick of played out civil rights leaders getting drunk off the haterade and questioning Obama's blackness. Andrew Young is in my crosshairs.
Showtime at the Apollo, Featuring Barack Obama
My perspective on seeing him live in Harlem
New Video on YouTube
My Comedy Central Open Mic Fight Regional Semifinal Set
One of my most solid shows caught on tape.
