I never liked Shelby Steele

Shelby Steele is a right-wing negro stooge at the Hoover Institute. And while Obama is a right-wing, neoliberal Democrat (find far more extensive examples of what's wrong with Obama in the Bro-Log links on the left and in the discussion threads on my Facebook page), I will take this moment of schadenfreude to post the cover to one of Steele's books.

Check out that subtitle!

The Telegraph reports: "A Bound Man: Why We Are Excited About Obama And Why He Can't Win, has been stuck at number 202,884 on the Amazon.com best seller list for quite some time."

In the Set/Usir department, ironically, Steele's twin brother is progressive academic Claude Steele, a leading proponent of the critical sociological concept "stereotype threat." (Thanks to Algernon Austin for introducing me to the term.)
