Especially when the big advantage of BO is that he's supposed to be such a flipping erudite genius...why, he wrote two works of literature about himself!:)
extremely doubtful that he can see the difference...

Naah, he's learned from Palin how much more professional it is to just write notes on your hand.
PALIN TIP ONE: Try to hide the notes on hand
PALIN TIP TWO: If you make a mistake, ignore tip one. Don't rub out old word, just scribble over, and add more notes to hand, hence easier to spot by audience and interviewer.
PALIn TIP THREE: Try to hide the notes on hand

why would only black lawmakers want to limit ethics office on investigating them.we know it couldnt be that they have something to hide.they are above doing anything illegal for they are black.this must be some sort of racism because they wouldnt do any wrong.that thar is funny,geter done.these corrupt people such as rangle have been getting away with what they want, because no one had the guts to fool with them because of their race.now an ethics group threatens to expose them and they want to change the rules to suit them.lets hope the rest of dems have the balls to not let them change the ethics office.

People like Representatives Rangel, Maxine Waters, and other black representatives have proven, time and again, to represent blacks first.
