So what if during his college days Barry the law student hobnobbed with Dr. Derrick Bell? That is so 1991.
And so what if the mainstream media didn't connect the dots. That is so 2008.
What matters is that in 2012 (now that we know how O actually governs) is that NFL Coach Lovie Smith has got the President's back.
To the masses (who are far more invested in sports than in politics) a telegenic football coach's approval will always trump a boring debate featuring earnest media watchdogs and a deceased Marxist professor.
Look at how smoothly the Coach cheerleads for Socialism Soft. Lovie is rocking the vote!
