BARACK OBAMA--THE NEW MOVIE STAR

Must see! “THE DEMOCRATIC DERBY” starring Barack Obama, the three to one favorite. Runner-up, Filly Hilly--oops, Hillary R. See Obama--the latest rage; the new household word.

Obama is part of every news report, every water-hole office gathering; every kitchen gabfest. Every time Hillary R. does something to make the news, the report turns into a story about Barack Obama. He is Poitier (Sydney), Davis (Ossie), and Belafonte (Harry) all consolidated neatly into a business-suited, dressed-for-success dynamo of yuppie-oriented Americanism.

Hillary R., on the other hand, is assigned the role of a frumpy, dumpy, dowdy, wanna-be-suburbanite, marry-for-status also-ran. She is cartooned as every conceivable femaleness put-down: sloppy hipped, short-legged, over-boobed, pot-bellied, scowling scold--the epitome of female failure.

Well, did you think the owners of Power-America, Inc., would want their battle-boy to face Hillary for that final lap of the race? No, Power America, Inc., who own the media and the oil and the Pentagon, think it would be easier to defeat a novice Black man--(after all, he IS black) than a Limited-Power-based sophisticated experienced white female (whom the gods of war are trying to drive mad). Power-America, Inc. would like to win with less dependency on manipulation by CIA (which of late seems flaky).
