The year 2010 has been pretty crappy for progressives, and the country in general, with prospects for 2011 not looking much better. Republicans are determined to extend the Bush tax cuts for high-income folks--exactly what an economy strangled by low middle-class demand does not need--so don't look for things to get better any time soon.
We probably could use a few stiff drinks. But as non-drinkers--at least for now--we tend to look elsewhere for comfort. And that means we could use a good belly laugh. Thankfully, with the help of an alert reader, we know just where to find one.
Comedian David Alan Grier played the immortal "No Soul" Simmons and has gone on to appear in a number of TV shows, including Comedy Central's Chocolate News.
A reader saw our earlier post and let us know that Grier has revealed some shocking news--Barack Obama isn't black!
"For you white people out there who refuse to vote for a black man, I've got news for you," Grier says. "He's not black. He's half black; he barely passes the brown paper bag test."
