Looking for Obama’s Jerry Seinfeld Moment

Posted By on Sun, Aug 17, 2008 at 10:26 AM

There is a classic episode (among the many) of Seinfeld, in which Jerry and George are reperatedly mistaken for being a gay couple, which they repeatedly deny, all the while adding, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

I keep hoping for Barack Obama - in the midst of having to issue so many denials that he is not a Moslem, but is indeed, a true-blue, 100% American Christian, would add the line:

“Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

Because there isn’t, is there? Unless you are some rancid bigot who sees America’s enemies every time you leave the house, that is. I just feel like every time he doesn’t specifically say this, he sort of does say there is something wrong with it.

Fayetteville Mayoral Trivia Question

Which current mayoral candidate once had aspirations (in the early 1990s) to be a Fayetteville newspaper publisher, and even went so far as to have an office rented, and a name picked out for the venture - but left the field before even one issue emerged?

Isaac Hayes and the Cultural Illiterates

I was in Harps the other day, and the theme from “Shaft” came over the music system played in the store. I suspect that Harps is like many stores and subscribes to a music service, so they are probably not responsible for this:

Where the lines: “Who’s the black private dick . . .” would have played, the sound was cut, but “ . . . sex machine to all the chicks?” was left in.

So - what doofus out there doesn’t know that a dick is a private eye?

Back in the early 1970s, the word “mother” was edited from many radio/juke box versions of “Shaft.”
