Prom queen thinking carries on...

MARION, Ala. (AP) - A small central Alabama county whose mainly black residents gave Barack Obama more than 70 percent of the vote on Election Day has created an annual holiday in honor of the president-elect.

The Perry County Commission voted 4 to 1 to observe the second Monday in November as "The Barack Obama Day." County offices will close and its roughly 40 workers will get a paid holiday.

The sponsoring commissioner, Albert Turner Jr., said the holiday is meant to highlight the Democratic president-elect's victory as a way to give people faith that difficult goals can be achieved.

The majority of the county's 12,000 residents are black.

The county commission's three black members and one of its two white members voted for the resolution.

Commissioner Brett Harrison said Wednesday he voted against the resolution because of the holiday costs to the county, which has a $2.2 million annual payroll and is one of the poorest in the state. He said closing the courthouse would also idle some state employees.

"I'm a Democrat, but just in these financial times, it's not using the county's money wisely," Harrison told The Associated Press by phone Wednesday. "The recognition is certainly well-founded."

Turner said copies of the resolution, adopted at a Nov. 25 meeting, have been mailed to Obama and his transition team.

An Associated Press exit poll found black voters in Alabama almost universally supported Obama while more than eight in 10 whites backed Republican John McCain. McCain carried the state with 60 percent of the vote.

I repeat, shouldn't we wait for this guy to do something worthwhile before publicly honoring him? Getting elected because of your skin color might be a commendable achievement for a prom queen, it's scary if used as a rationale for electing a President.

I hate to say it but it was all about skin color in this election. I work with several American blacks and they told me they voted for Obama because of the historic precedent of voting for the first black president.

Frankly I don't give a damn what color his skin is. He didn't acknowledge the Nation Anthem and didn't wear an American flag pin until it became a political issue.

Don't like him, Didn't like him, and Still don't like him! Is that plain enough!

I'm amazed they haven't canonized him already. Boy will they ever be in for a rude awakening when they find out the new boss is same as the old boss.

Pops, Amen and amen!

Vir, he's already pissing off a lot of his moonbat supporters by selecting Gates for Secretary of Defense. Could be the shape of things to come. Lets hope his failure to follow up on campaign promises extends to passing FOCA.

Didn't some other idiot propose a national Obama Day? I have a feeling things are going to get really weird once his Obamaness is crowned - uh - I mean sworn in.

Harry, there was a story similar to what you mention. Don't think the idea gained any traction.

Yet.
