The Presidential Election and Black Manhood

MICHELLE BERNARD has been all over the map this election cycle. She was one of the few analysts to point out that Barack Obama had to be the Jackie Robinson of politics just to get the nomination. He could never show anger or too much emotion.

When Sarah Palin was added to the Republican ticket, Bernard, a Republican-leaning independent, was ecstatic to see a conservative woman on a national ticket for the first time in history. She lost all logic a she extolled the virtues of that backwater sociopath from the last frontier that my mother calls the Lady from the North Pole.

But after Obama defeated McCain, she regained sanity.

When all was said and done, Bernard showed once more why she was one of my favorite analysts throughout this election cycle.
