Actually, if I know anything about Tom from reading 4-Block every day, he probably doesn't want either Obama or Hillary in the White House. In fact, if you were in control of your mental faculties, you would have seen that the reference is to Obama's racist pastor, not to Obama. Tom has made no reference to Obama's race.

So next time, why don't YOU get YOUR facts straight before you come completely unglued. Also, you might want to get that condition checked out by a psychiatrist. There's treatment now.

On the other hand, that was a nice (if spotty) usage of alliteration. Try assonance next time - it's more challenging, and thus more rewarding. Also, I see two spelling errors, two capitalization errors, two apostrophication errors, and (perhaps biased by my editorial style) three to four punctuation errors, all in one run-on sentence (another error in and of itself).

In a composition of only 39 words (and I really should dock the expletives from that total, but I'll refrain, as a nod to the First Amendment), ten to eleven elementary errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation would earn you a low "C" grade, if I graded on a straight percentage scale.

However, in this case I will grade on a curve, such that there may only be one "A", and that there must be one "D" or "F" (at my discretion), based on the size of the class (equal to the current number of comments, including mine).

I am afraid you have failed. Please correct and resubmit your composition, for partial credit (at best). I elect the "F" grade over the "D", based on the content error pointed out ny our classmate: contrary to your premise, the author made no mention of Sen. Obama's ethnic heritage. Such a significant flaw in the foundation of your reasoning (as expressed in your composition - I don't profess (no pun intended) to know your actual thoughts, if any) is sufficient grounds for electing to assign the lower of two grading options.

Please congratulate your classmate for a fine example of "A"-level work, as you exit. Have a nice day.

Ah, I see that I have a spelling error of my own. Given the nature of the curve, that means a "C" for me, again based on the population.

There goes my GPA...

Also, please refrain from using the word "Christian" as your nom de plume. You're giving us a bad name.
