A Fuller Spectrum of Bullcrap

I just noticed the tagline on MSNBC.com's banner: "A fuller spectrum of news"

On the page I happen to be reading, there is a "live poll" question: "Do you think America is ready to elect a minority to the White House in 2008? Yes, no, not sure".

Ok, so there's one serious candidate for President who can be called a minority. No, Richardson doesn't count.

Unfortunately there isn't a choice for "some generic member of a minority, but not that quasi-socialist empty-suit demagogue Obama".

Exit question, are we ready to elect a woman Prez? I'm just trying to do my part to promote a fuller spectrum of poll choices to which one should answer "whoever the Dem candidate is because otherwise I'm a bad person".
