NOR WILL YOU HEAR MAVERICK CALL HIM...:

Grover Norquist has a label for Barack Obama (Don Frederick, 6/27/08, LA Times)

John McCain has been trying hard of late to link Barack Obama with Jimmy Carter in the public consciousness, hoping that the "ineffectual" label that many voters affix to the former president will prove transferable.

Anti-tax activist Grover Norquist touts Goc. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota as prime vice presidential prospects for presumptive Republican presdiential nominee John McCainBut Grover Norquist -- the conservative activist who specializes in promoting an anti-tax agenda and, more generally, revels in the role of agent provocateur -- is offering a different comparison.

Norquist dropped by The Times' Washington bureau today and, as part of his negative critique of Obama's liberal stances on economic issues and other matters, he termed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee "John Kerry with a tan."


..Carol Mosely-Braun with a penis.

How about Carol Mosely-Braun without a vagina? Although Grover's lable is techincally correct, mine is more appropriate because he is a liberal democrat after all.

Looking at BHO's coloring in photos from his youth, I'd say that on the contrary, he goes out of his way now to stay out of the sun.

Strictly speaking, Kerry has much more of a tan, not even counting the orange glow in that one debate. (Or was that Gore?)
