A Cup of Coco Tea steep in Obama

In Caribbean American interest, Entertainment, Politics on September 29, 2008 at 7:52 am

It’s nice to know West Indian comrades are campaigning even from Jamaica’s Blue Mountains to get Obama into the White House. This is a catchy ditty, wouldn’t you say? Me likes.

So the much anticipated war of the words between presidential nominees Barack Obama and John McCain took place yesterday evening at Ole Miss. We can all breathe a sigh of relief. Whew! Glad to get debate round one outta of the way. Glad McCain decided to resurrect his campaign. Glad Barack – adamant about going forth with the debate come hell or high water, and rightly so – didn’t have to debate with an empty chair.

The jabs were split between the two, I thought.  Barack held his own on foreign policy issues though I found Barack agreeing with one too many points made by McCain irksome as hell.

A CNN survey found 51 percent of those polled thought Obama did a better job; 38 percent said the night belonged to McCain. Forty-six percent of males gave the win to McCain and 43 to Obama. Women voters leaned toward Obama with 59 percent and McCain with 31 percent. I was too lazy to scroll to the part where it says how many voters participated in this poll so take this tidbit with a grain of salt.

But that’s old news now. I’m eagerly awaiting the Joe Biden/Sarah Palin spar this Thursday. Palin’s interview with Katie Couric was a bomb. I can only imagine how she’ll fare against Biden, a politician known for being verbose.

Let’s get ready to ruuuuuumble! – MJ
