Etan Thomas Stumps For Obama

Etan Thomas has delivered his "It's Time For a Change" speech at venues all over this area; the text was published at Huffington Post over the summer. Two of our Metro writers, David Nakamura and Hamil Harris, were at a DNC rally in downtown D.C. over the weekend, and they got video of Thomas's speech, seen here.

Highlight:


Beyond our borders our national pride barely stays afloat along a river of the poor choices and irresponsible actions we've delivered instead of flowing as powerfully as a mighty stream. We seem to be looked upon through eyes of disdain, a stained creation brought about by the decisions of the Bush administration. What will keep us from drowning? Crowning the correct captain to command our ship, steer us around the debris left in the open sea of the past eight years with a real commander in chief, we can recover a strength that will last. Cast into a sea of endless possibility, politics as usual will be a thing of the past.

It's time for a change.

A shift toward something we haven't seen or heard these past eight years. It's time to Visine their lies until we make them clear, Proactiv the ugly acne of deceit.

That's some descriptive language, no? Waiting for DeShawn Stevenson to discuss how it's time to Zyrtec the annoying allergens out of the body politic.

His rhetorical style reminds me of a Chris Rock skit about torture that I probably shouldn't go too far into.

But at least he's backing the right candidate.

1. I wonder if he and Gilbert get along?

2. It's a shame Etan doesn't have the talent of a Amare Stoudamire. Were he more popular, he could be the NBA's version of Muhammad Ali.

Something I once thought Gilbert could be.

Etan Thomas is an awful writer. End of story.

Etan Thomas is a lousy player and a locker room troublemaker. The Wiz would be better off without him and I'm saying that even WITH Haywood's injury.
