Barack Obama - Traffic Scofflaw!

barack-obama2.jpgDid you know that while he was living in Somerville (Somerville, represent!) and attending Harvard Law School, Barack racked up a strong 17 traffic violations, including seven in an eight-day stretch? And better yet, while this was from 1988 through 1991, he didn’t actually pay those violations until last year, almost two decades later.

My high-school buddy Dave Hoffman asks the valid question of “how did Obama pass his character and fitness evaluation,” when folks always say that past-due tickets are one of the big things that the Bar focuses on. Because if you didn’t pay a parking ticket when you were in college, you might not have the high moral fiber so many lawyers proudly share with the public each and every day.

Well...if Barack Obama is going to be disqualified for unpaid parking tickets the nobody in the country would pass any litmus test.

Would something a little more useful like: "Does he actually have a workable agenda rather than just great sounding platitudes?" work a little better as a vote/no vote test?
