Cory Booker's Revenge?

(note update at bottom)

If you recollect, Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, New Jersey (picture everything that Obama was supposed to be, and claimed to be, in a more center-left package) was made a "unperson" by the Obama campaign after commenting that the president's attacks on Romney's business record were "nauseating” and made him “very uncomfortable.”

He then made the famous "hostage" video, where he walked back the comments (while sweating profusely, and nervously looking off-camera), but he's been in Baracky's doghouse ever since.  Personally, I think it is because Obama knows how bad he looks in comparison to the affable, hard-working, bipartisan Booker, but as far as we know, the mayor remains in purgatory due to his unfortunate bout of refreshing honesty.

But perhaps Cory is tired of being shit on by his inferiors.  How else can we explain this "gaffe", in an ad paid for by Mayor Booker and  printed in  the New Jersey directory of delegates at the convention?

A mistake by one of the brightest bulbs in the Democratic party?  Or a warning to "Barak" that he'd better show some respect if he intends to get any from the only man in New Jersey who would even have a shot at unseating Chris Christie?

"Barak" needs all the friends he can get right now, so I'll bet he gets the message - and gets on Booker's good side.

Oh boy...the DNC 2012 is gonna be a doozy...

UPDATE 9/4:  Perhaps I have praised Booker too highly.  At a Planned Parenthood rally today, Booker proved himself to be as equal as any Democrat in his ability to scrape the bottom of the barrel  in order to demonize Republicans:

“I heard people stand up and say, ‘I love women.’ I heard people stand up: ‘I’ve got a sister. I’ve got a mother.’”
“That’s like saying you’re not a bigot ’cause you have a black friend,” Booker retorted, drawing cheers and applause from the crowd. “That’s like saying I love Latinos, I go to Taco Bell every week.

And so I don’t understand how somebody can say they love women when they are denying women access to health care, when they are denying women strategies to protect their life, when they are implementing policies that undermine all the ground that we have gained,” he concluded, saying he was speaking not only about women’s progress, but also about the country’s progress.

“There’s some people in the Republican party that believe when they say all men are created equal, that they are leaving out women themselves,” Booker said later on in his remarks. “That’s not the nation we are.

Who are those people in the Republican party that "...believe when they say all men are created equal, that they are leaving out women themselves"?

Name them, you worthless piece of radical shit.  Or shut the fuck up, and make no further pretensions about who and what you really are:  A liar, and an n opportunistic hack, kissing the ass of Barack Hussein Obama and doing his dirty work in order to stay in his good graces.

And I thought it might be the other way around.  Sorry, readers, for misrepresenting Booker as something he apparently is not:  A man.
