      Bless you, Rev., for your eloquent and reasoned call for Obama to be more proactive in his messages to homophobic clergy and congregations, but we’re skeptical after McClurkingate when, given his first opportunity to walk his talk he, as black writer Rod 2.0 put it, “folded like a house of cards.”

      Yea the video is for a car dealer in this dingy town in west Japan. (I’m not Japanese, but can sure as hell speak it) Japan’s the land of weird ass commercial. If you wanna see some funny shit, go to Youtube and do a search for the ad firm Dentsu’s commercials. chock-full of crazy shit.
