Barack Obama was smart and to-the-point in rejecting his former pastor's angry words:

The New York Times reported that the pastor was a black liberation theologian; I wonder if that's anything like the liberation theology led by South/Latin American priests (and one rabbi, too) in past decades.

Last night's "Saturday Night Live" got it right having Tracy Morgan appear on Weekend Update to respond to Tina Fey's previous endorsement of HRC, "bitch is the new black." His comeback? "Black is the new president, bitch!" The delivery was hilarious--not that I approve of name-calling. I wonder if Tina wrote it for him (a la "30 Rock.") Zing-a-zing!
