It wasn’t so bad. One may note that the pearls were absent last night. She cuts a striking figure and she learned a lot from Barack. It was heart warming to hear Michelle talk about how her dad worked so hard for the city so she could go to college. It was a soft sell of the point Bill Cosby has pointed out, that dads need to support their families. I was reminded, though, of Chris Rock’s infamous act.

There is a double standard here.  If McCain talks about how his dad was an admiral in the Navy, his critics will use that against him, as if he had a priveleged life.  Mr Robinson was a responsible dad and a good role model for fathers black or white…I don’t know how that makes Barack Obama any more or less qualified to be president.
