Some Wednesday Entertainment: Randy Newman’s new election song.
“I’m dreaming of a white president.” 🙂
Newman, who is white, is openly supporting President Barack Obama. He says he wants the public to find comedic relief in the song, but to also know he’s serious about his thoughts that racism is well and alive in the world — and in the current presidential race. He called racism ‘‘the great issue of this country.’’
