You can get to the top of CNN’s front page by doing nothing at all.
Former President Bill Clinton and Barack Obama talked by phone Monday morning, the Obama campaign and a Clinton spokesman said.
Obama “had a terrific conversation with President Clinton and is honored to have his support in this campaign,” said campaign spokesman Bill Burton.
Never has so little meant so much.
More and more this wall-to-wall, “Does Bill hate Obama, check yes, no or maybe” drama is causing me some pause as to the news judgment of CNN political reporter Candy Crowley and her producers. This is all too similar to the great Hilary Duff/Lindsay Lohan/Ashlee Simpson wars from over a few years back.
Or for us Negroes, the continued drama of Tameka Foster, Usher and Usher’s mom. Or Beyonce versus two-fourths of the original Destiny’s Child. Or Shaq v. Kobe, Part 123,784 — Shazam’s Rap Revenge. Sigh. Never have two more unappealing people carried on one pointless feud for so, so long.
Yet despite Kobe’s amazing arrogance, I still hate Shaq more. I can’t forgive his near uselessness as he is one of the most overrated NBA centers this side of Bill Walton. But he’s tall and takes up space so bully for him. Let’s ignore that he couldn’t win anything without Kobe or Dwayne Wade and the many other people who could shoot, run, pass, defend and make free throws.
