Obama needs to “take that rock to the hole”

So urges Chris Rabb. He could be speaking in metaphor– don’t run down the clock, but go strong to the hoop– but his advice is literal.

Obama needs to dunk on camera . . . often!….say what you like about what White working classfolk are in to. The simple fact remains that White guys do not live vicariously through professional bowlers — be they White or Black (assuming there were Black professional bowlers).

Quiet as it’s kept, many millions of White guys dream of being Black basketball players. And whatever draw bowling may have on that demographic, it will never surpass the beauty and catharsis of basketball. And it is this game that will indelibly mark Obama’s viability and unique vitality in this race for president.

Simply put, Obama’s got game and needs to show it. Racial stereotypes be damned!
