Obama's college records

There are people posting that Obama hasn't released his college records, with the sinister implication that there's something bad in there. In terms of grades, there's unlikely to be anything very bad -- after all, he got into Harvard Law School.

But it's true that Obama's college records are an embarrassment:

There's some Bill Cosby albums. "Why is there Air?" has obviously been played lots of times.

Lots of Motown. Lots. On a Gladys Knight and the Pips album, he's pasted pictures of his face over the faces of the Pips.

But there's some Bob Newhart there too. And Firesign Theatre, for those nights when he didn't have a date and got stoned in his room.

Three Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass albums. A black guy listening to Herb Alpert? He was out of date for white guys by then.

It's no wonder he doesn't want to discuss his college records.
