Come on Dopers 'fess up. On this message board you talk the talk - we hear plenty about how this statement or that statement about Obama is racist; this action or this failure to act is racist; this argument or that opinion isn’t as innocent as it sounds.
So come on how many have the courage of their convictions. How many aren’t anonymously preaching to me in Australia. Tell me a story to show me you are real.
I was walking through the mall last week and there were a group of people in hideous orange tee-shirts trying to hand out some Save the Whales literature. One guy approached me and made some half-hearted attempt to hand me a pamphlet. I snubbed him and walked off. But then I had a thought. I went back to the guy and said, “Look mate you’ve already done the hard part. You agreed to come here and do this. You agreed to wear the stupid tee-shirt, so you already look like a dickhead, so why be so passive. Get in to it.” He got much louder.
So let’s hear what you have done and what tips you have for other Obama supporters.
