Obama wins South Carolina and other thoughts…

This particular democratic race is turning out to be something crazier than I imagined. I for one would never have thought it would shake out the way it has been thus far. Incase you didn’t know, Barack Obama beat Hillary Clinton and John Edwards to win the state of South Carolina.

What is surprising isn’t so much that he won, but that he won by such a large margin. Some interesting tidbits;

Obama garnered 80% of the African American vote in South Carolina and 50% amongst young people.

This continues a trend that has been established early thus far; Obama appeals to the youth. While the media, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards continue to see Obama as a capable black man, they are missing out on the main point. There is a rebellion, a revolution coming. The Youth are saying: hey we don’t like the way things have been to this point and we are going to make a change.

Obama understands that. This is why you’ll see him say “change”, “change”, “change” as many times as he can in every speech he makes. Clinton and Edwards should start to get it or they don’t stand a chance. Just a word of advice to the wise.

So if you hadn’t heard by now, Dana Jacobson was recently suspended by ESPN and just got reinstated.

Apparently Ms. Jacobson of ESPN’s “First Take”, went too far at a roast for Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg (of Mike and Mike fame) and said some things that were inappropriate about Notre Dame, Touchdown Jesus and Jesus himself.

I have searched around but I can’t seem to find any information on what she actually said. If anyone knows, please do share. Here is what I have to say though. It is a pity. I like Dana Jacobson. I thought we should have learned by now that alcohol and microphones do not mix well. Not at Karaoke bars and obviously not at celebrity roasts.
