Black Like Me

Remember the groundbreaking John Howard Griffin book, published first in 1961 about a white guy who disguises himself as black and travels around the south—in 1959?!? Well not in the same league, and there was nothing in Griffin's experiences to laugh at, but Richard Rushfield has a hilarious article in Slate about pretending to be a campaign-paraphernalia garbed Kerry-Edwards supporter in Bush country, and conversely, a Bush-Cheney supporter in the blue regions. Read and laugh. (via Michael Totten)
