GIMME FIVE: People Who Are Definitely NOT On Obama’s Veep List

As the nation eagerly anticipates the announcement of Barack Obama’s running mate, Blindie has compiled a list of people who definitely won’t be making the cut as the nation’s potential next Vice-President:

1. Rev. Jesse Jackson, who says he had the burning desire to cut Obama’s “nuts off.”

2. John Edwards, who is busy with a cancer-stricken wife, a mistress, a baby he denies fathering, and dodging the National Enquire.

3. Country singer Toby Keith, who thinks Obama “don’t talk, act, or carry himself as a black person.”

4. Rev. Jeremiah Wright whose fiery sermon is a pesky reminder of America’s shameful history.

5. Ex-Senator Larry Craig whose “inappropriate” behavior in a Minneapolis airport bathroom prompted his resignation. He insisted, “I am not gay and never have been.”

Toby Keith on Obama: ‘He Doesn’t Talk Act Or Carry Himself Like A Black Person’


It seems the mainstream media didn’t pick up on this gem of a quote from country music singer Toby Keith as he ruminated on the racial characteristics of Barack Obama. Thanks to YouTube, Blindie got it!

Last week, Keith was a guest on the the Glenn Beck radio show (dubbed “The third most listened to program in all of America”), where he said of Senator Obama:

I think that the black people would say, he don’t talk, act, or carry himself as a black person…I’m saying that’s what I think that they would say. Even though the black society would pull for him, I still think that they think in the back of their mind that the only reason that he is in is because he talks, acts and carries himself as a Caucasian.

This is the same misguided singer who recorded a “patriotic” song in response to 9/11, “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American)” in 2002, and feuded with the Dixie Chicks over their opinions about President George W. Bush. He also recorded the album, White Trash With Money, in 2006.
