And for all the heated rhetoric being thrown at him [President Obama] these days — soc**list, sellout, soporific, yadda yadda yadda — I don’t think anyone has accused him of a racial approach to politics. People want to know what he’s doing about unemployment and health care and climate change. In a very real sense, he seems to have transcended race.
(I was going to make a Tiger Woods analogy here, but at the moment that seems like a decidedly bad idea.)
It’s probably mostly just that Tiger is too shiny of an object for Kurtz to resist, but still.
