I'm A Low-Hanging Fruit

I've been puttering around, humming that to myself today. It was Chris Matthews who gave me that new way of seeing myself when he said that women, politically speaking, are low-hanging fruits for Obama. All he needs to say that he's pro-choice and McCain is not, and, presto!, the election is in his bag.

Of course, the discussion about white men doesn't call them low-hanging fruits though that would seem more descriptive, actually. Nope, they need much more persuading to vote for Obama rather than McCain. They need a "palpably patriotic" VP for Obama. Are we all supposed to go and palpate that person, the way we might test melons for ripeness? Not sure.

This, my sweet readers, is the status of public commentary on American politics.
