During the second presidential debate, John McCain was asked by a young man, who happened to be African-American, about how the bailout would affect rank and file Americans. McCain prefaced his response with: “You probably have never heard of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac…”
Turns out the young man, Oliver Clark, indeed did
know about the mortgage giants. And on Daily Kos, which found the questioner’s Facebook page, it is revealed that not only is Clark intelligent, knowledgeable, and articulate
, but with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Tennessee State University, a master’s degree in Legal Studies from Southern Illinois University, “a few years” in law school, and a current pursuit of a master’s in Public Administration at the University of Memphis, he has more education than McCain and Palin combined.
Don’t talk about this too loudly. Some McShame sycophant is likely to label the poor man “uppity.”
