Blacks against Blackwell


If you enjoyed our news story on Uncle Tom Blackwell this week, be sure to check out the website for Blacks Against Blackwell. Along with an interactive quiz, the site contains a hilariously over-the-top dialogue between President Bush and Blackwell, whom Bush allegedly called a "nut," according to Bob Woodward's new book. "But you promised me I could run Ohio," Blackwell whines. To which Bush responds: "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't." -- Kevin Hoffman
