Cory, Harold, and Barack
So we were enjoying some backstairs chatter with SFL about how boring the political news is right now, how the only topic on tap is Cory Booker showing up on Meet the Shill for purposes of objecting to the Obama campaign’s attacks on Bain Capital, how everyone suddenly notices that Cory has some Wall Street backers, and how Cory may be harboring some wee resentment that Barack scored the First Black Preznident trophy instead of him.
And we note that Obama also has some Wall Street backers, even if they’re feeling petulant right now. And once you raise the subject of Opportunistic Black Political Yuppies with Wall Street Backers, you can’t help but think of Harold Ford.
And while we’re busy thinking how that would make an interesting story — Civil Rights Act Babies angling for The Prize and keeping a wary eye on each other — Mitt rushes out a web ad featuring Cory and Harold.
Which isn’t the story we were thinking about. Just frightens us, is all.
