    Do you seriously think Bush wrote this whole thing by himself, do you?

    I don't know. I was responding to he statment that writing two books widely thought to have been written by others makes Obama accomplished.

    He does apparently make idiotic statements about who's "blacker" on major cable TV channels. So there's that.

    Seriously, George W. Bush went to private schools. Is he "whiter" than me because of that? It's completely moronic.

    Part of the reason I detest the term "African-American". Not all blacks are African, not all Africans are black. (Yeah, simplistic, I know)

    Actually, Sowell is one of the most fair-minded, even-handed, thoughtful columnist writing today.

    Yeah, somewhat. I loved his points about the intellectual class, a sort of inside commentary. However, on occasion he will say some things that are just nuts. On one episode of Ideas in Action he gave an explicit statement that Obama was more or less the same as our less esteemed autocrats. I forget the exact context, as it has been about a year, but as it was very explicit. I was just shocked he would do that.

    Once my wife was teaching an art history class and covering art from South Africa. First she said it was important to distinguish between art by black artists and that by white artists. When she started talking and said the artist of a piece was black, one of the students "corrected" her for not saying "African-American." She had to tell them that he wasn't "African-American," because he wasn't American.

    People who think Barack Obama propelled us closer to a post-racial world have their head in the sand.
