whachu talkin bout, nader?

apparently barack obama is talking white, according to ralph nader. rockymtnnews:

nader was asked if obama is any different than democrats he has criticized in the past, considering obama's pledge to reject campaign contributions from registered lobbyists.

"there's only one thing different about barack obama when it comes to being a democratic presidential candidate. he's half african-american," nader said. "whether that will make any difference, i don't know. i haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. what's keeping him from doing that? is it because he wants to talk white? he doesn't want to appear like jesse jackson? we'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards."…

asked to clarify whether he thought obama does try to "talk white," nader said: "of course."
asked to respond, sen. obama said, "why, muffy, i'm taking the yacht over to the regatta, while jeeves cleans the pool house. let's have some sushi and bottled water. and then let's put on sweaters!"
