Because all potential black presidents, real or fake, look alike.
Alright, the subtle craziness that came out of Dennis Haysbert was not that he said he feels he helped pave the way for people to believe a black man could be president (he played saintly President David Palmer on "24"). I actually agree with his premise. And it wasn't even that people were asking him to run. No, it was this quote (emphasis mine):
Haysbert, 54, said he recently stopped for dinner south of Los Angeles with his daughter in Dana Point, Calif., a town he described as "very wealthy, very white and very Republican."
"I go into this little restaurant with that demographic and a lady comes up to me and says, `You know, I want to vote for you,'" he said. "I don't know if it is a joke or that people just like to say those things. But to me, for them to say it out loud means they are thinking about it."
It might be a joke, but it sounds like she thinks Dennis Haysbert is actually Barack Obama. Unless she has Alzheimer's, she's an idiot, and a little bit racist. Why didn't anyone point that out?
