Speaking of biking with Obama...

The AP reports he rode his bike this weekend with his family, causing much speculating and hand-wringing amongst pundits (slow news day anyone?). The Right Wing generally questioned whether his somewhat geeky-looking helmet would be another Dukakis moment.
Newsweek says no, this is good politics: "While the press has tended to focus on Obama's connection to black culture in recent weeks, from his reference to Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" to his fist pound with wife Michelle, the bike photos prove, once and for all, that Obama can be painfully, embarrassingly white as well."

Sheesh. Can't a guy just ride his bike?
