'I'm Comin', Weezie'

Wow, how stupid can Obama get?
Before a largely African-American crowd in Raleigh, North Carolina, this afternoon, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said, "If Senator McCain is elected, we’ll have another President who wants to privatize part of your Social Security."

The crowd jeered.

"That ain't right," Obama said. "Can you imagine? If Social Security funds had been invested in the stock market, Americans wouldn't even need Social Security!

"You would be having Sanford and Son," the senator said, referring to the 70s sitcom featuring Redd Foxx as the proprietor of a junkyard.

"I'm comin', Weezie," he said, laughing, botching one of the signature lines from the show, in which Foxx clutched his chest in a mock heart-attack and prepared to meet his late wife in heaven.
Just one little problem. Weezie was married to George Jefferson. Fred Sanford used to say "I'm comin', Elizabeth."

What a dunce. He probably never even watched those shows. Too busy seeking out Marxist friends and getting stoned back then, I guess.

Seems to me Obama, of all people, should be painfully familiar with Sanford and Son.

Update: Michelle Malkin wonders how much ridicule Sarah Palin or John McCain would suffer if they botched such a cultural reference. Know this: It would never end.

It's noted here Obama deviated from his prepared script, proving once again he's hapless without his trusty teleprompter.
Obama departed from his prepared remarks in making the Sanford reference.
I wonder if the drive-by media will play this monster gaffe on an endless loop tonight and laugh at his idiocy?
