Life is a state of mind

I still can’t decide; was Kosinski describing the W presidency, or the upcoming McSleasy presidency?
“It’s for sure a white man’s world in America. Look here: I raised that boy since he was the size of a piss-ant. And I’ll say right now, he never learned to read and write. No, sir. Had no brains at all. Was stuffed with rice pudding between th’ ears. Shortchanged by the Lord, and dumb as a jackass. Look at him now! Yes, sir, all you’ve gotta be is white in America, to get whatever you want. Gobbledy-gook!”
— Louise, in Being There

Yes, it’s good to be white in America.
