Diversity, schimersity

A little ethnic humor from the Take Back America conference:

"Nancy Pelosi is the most powerful Italian since Julius Caesar."

--Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass.

"I'm one-third white, one-third Cherokee and one-third African. I could write my own reparations check."

--Connie Rice, NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund
More to come, mes amis.

Poor John Edwards; he has to follow Barack Obama with his speech at the Take Back America conference in Washington, D.C. For those of you with lives, who live outside the political game show that is your blogstress's adopted city, TBA is an annual confab convened by an organization called the Campaign for America's Future.

Had he not followed Obama, Edwards' speech would have been a right good speech. But since Obama left the stage, it's all I can do not to notice that the delicate hairs that add an otherworldly shimmer to your blogstress's arms are no longer standing up, or that it is once again safe for your blogstress to wear mascara, since she is no longer weeping in awe -- or that she is again capable of blogging during a speech, something she found impossible during Obama's. Edwards has a program. He has brains. He has nice hair and a good tan.

But Obama's got the mojo.
