I heard about this and I just had to laugh. Rush Limbaugh has elicited the help of his call screener Bo Snerdley to criticize Obama in areas requiring an African American perspective. Mr. Snerdley offers his criticism twice – once for whitey and once for the brothers. The translation alone makes it worth the read:
This is Bo Snerdley, official criticizer for the EIB Network, certified black enough to criticize. I have a statement. Senator Obama, we understand the need for you to take time off with your family, but this is a presidential race, and while you were away, your former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, continued making news. Now he’s attacking Italian-Americans, referring to them as garlic noses. Senator Obama, one of your platforms is that you would speak to America’s enemies, persuade them somehow to become our friends. Yet you apparently can’t even speak with your friend, your former pastor, after all that has happened in recent weeks and persuade him to just be quiet, for the sake of your own campaign to be quiet and for the sake of unity. Mr. Obama, we’re losing hope, and it’s very sad.
And now the translation for the brothers and the sisters in the EIB community: Yo Barack, I had you confused with the brother that knows how to throw down. Your homey, first he goes out and disses the World War II vets, he disses us dropping the bomb to win a war, then he lifts some lines from brother Malcolm. All right, all right, that was cool. But after all that, it starts to blow over. What does he do? He comes out and disses the Italians. What’s next, bro? He’s going to diss the Jews? Yo, Obama, tell your homey to shut up, at least, man, until you win. Your main B man, he sounds like he’s hooked on madness, and what are you doing? Chilling somewhere out in the Caribbean. Yo, bro, you in the game, you wanted to be in the game, now you in the game. In the game, you either play or you get played. And bro, you’re getting played out by your homey, Reverend Wright. That concludes our statement.
