Chocolate Prophecy

I've become a fan of Comedy Central's new Chocolate News created and starring Living Colour alum David Allan Grier. His opening "rant" always concludes with a demand that some individual or business not "lose your damn mind" with respect to some black issue.

Last week's segment seems strangely clairvoyant in light of today's Blagojevich indictment:

Like Grier said, Obama is at the top of his popularity right now -- or was last week. This week, he will inevitably face "What did he know and when did he know it?" questions related to the Blago scandal. Worse, much of the national press corps is already in Chicago covering transition stuff. It's so easy for them all now to switch over right away into Scandal Mode. Even though Blagojevich is the indicted one, it's much easier for lazy journalists to use the phrase "Obama seat" to describe the scandal.

Oh well, the Era of Good Feeling was great while it lasted.

Honeymoon is now officially over -- even before the presidency has begun!
