Bill Richardson Beats Powhatan for Indian Endorsement
The Bill Richardson campaign announced today that it has secured the endorsement of the All Indian Pueblo Council, who made their tough decision around a campfire one night with Survivor's Jeff Probst overseeing. The Council can't endorse any of the WASPy candidates, obviously -- they're still grumpy over that whole colonization thing, what with the biological decimation and all. And while they appreciate Obama's fetching swarthiness, they like Richardson most for his Mexican heritage; they want a president with whom they can converse about the Spanish "Black Legend." (Oh, also because Richardson promises to make an Indian Affairs cabinet position.) They make a fitting pair: both Bill Richardson and Native Americans have done a lot of service for the white man, only to see the white man not give a shit.
