I'm still up and its the early wee-hours of Sunday morning and I'm waiting for the young-SjP's who think they grown to bring they butts home so I can go to bed. What this means is that I'm probably gonna missed the big announcement - if there is a big announcement - from the General on Meet the Press this morning. Will Colin Powell endorse the Obama/Biden Democratic ticket or will he endorse the Lt. Dan/Ice Queen dumb as a box of rocks Republican ticket? Hmmm.... Let me look into my crystal ball - cause I bet you a dollar to a donut I'm gonna be sleep!
So, here's my prediction. Colin Powell will endorse Barack Obama. Look, even though Powell is a "company man" his momma didn't raise no fool. The "company" burned him big time so he's gonna be very hard pressed to endorse Lt. Dan. On top of that, if Powell was gonna endorse McCain he would have done so a hell of a long time ago - in support of the GOP and all that crap. And you gotta know that the candidate he's endorsing has already been informed. And right in through here, ain't no way that the Lt. Dan camp coulda kept that a secret. I know, I know! He kept Palin a secret. Hell, Palin was a secret to him - he thought he was going with Joe Leibermann. And do you think that a General with more stars on his shoulder than in the sky gonna endorse somebody who got a stone fool as a running mate and a heart beat away from the red phone? C'mon now!
But, there is one more reason why I predict that Colin Powell will endorse Barack Obama on Meet the Press this morning. A reason much more plausible and vital than any I just gave you. One that nobody is really considering - or probably just won't verbalize. But, I will. Colin Powell is married to a Black Woman! Think about it! Would you want to be in his shoes? I have said and will continue to say that Mrs. Powell is still ticked off that he served as SoS under President Dumbo. How much you wanna bet that she still telling him "I told you so...but, nooooo you just wouldn't listen!"
Of course, I could be completely wrong on this. He could come out and endorse his fellow military frat brother. He could do this and negate all that talk about Black folks are only voting for Barack because he's Black. He could do this and possibly turn the tide of election. Yeah, he could endorse Lt. Dan - but if he does, I just hope the Lincoln bedroom in the White House is available.
P.S. THEY STILL AIN'T HOME!
Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...
