How do you call yourself a conservative and vote for Barack Obama? Easy, if you're narcissistic phony like Armstrong Williams:
This is just dumb, yet Williams was never really known for being too bright. And if Armstrong wants anyone to believe that his little guessing game isn't just a cop-out because he's gonna ignore all his principles and vote for Barack because he's black, somebody needs to slap him.
WASHINGTON -- Black conservative talk show host Armstrong Williams has never voted for a Democrat for president. That could change this year with Barack Obama as the Democratic Party's nominee.
"I don't necessarily like his policies; I don't like much that he advocates, but for the first time in my life, history thrusts me to really seriously think about it," Williams said. "I can honestly say I have no idea who I'm going to pull that lever for in November. And to me, that's incredible."
Just as Obama has touched black Democratic voters, he has engendered conflicting emotions among black Republicans. They revel over the possibility of a black president but wrestle with the thought that Obama doesn't sit beside them ideologically.
"Among black conservatives," Williams said, "they tell me privately, it would be very hard to vote against him in November."
