Janeane Garofalo: No legitimate candidate to oppose President Obama
Last night was the opening night of Russian Transport, Janeane Garofalo making her theatrical debut as a Brooklyn Russian-Jewish mom took a moment to discuss Obama’s chances this fall.
“There is a segment of this country who would rather commit harakiri than vote for Barack Obama. Not just because he’s a Democrat, but because they cannot abide dark skin. It’s visceral. They can’t abide it,” she explained. “But as a legitimate candidate to go against him? No, there is no one. I don’t see that possibility.” None of them? Really? Well, there was one who briefly caught her attention: ” Initially Ron Paul [seemed authentic], but then you realize he’s just full of it, too. It’s so rare when you are watching a candidate that you can honestly look at that man and say, ‘I believe that that man really believes exactly what he is saying.’”
