Just Wondering

I have a question.

Why does the president of the United States always have to be an old white man?


I’m just curious. Does anyone know?

Is 2008 the year we’re finally, for the first time ever, going to have a non-old-white-man for president? Or will all the old white men jump up and say, “I know you guys are eager to have a woman or a not-white guy be president, but this is the wrong woman and this is the wrong not-white guy. So why not just vote for another old white man this time? Again?”?

Oh, wait – they’re already saying that.

I’m not saying I have anything against old white men. But, seriously, is anyone else ever going to get a chance? This is like being in high school and watching blonde cheerleaders win prom queen every single year.

No offense, but most people in this country are not old white men. Most of the old white men I know, unfortunately, have trouble relating to me and my friends and my family and our issues. So, why in the world would I vote for another old white man, no matter how much smack he talks about the woman and the not-white guy?
