Draft La Shawn Barber

Somebody has to start this. It might as well be me. So here goes:

Draft La Shawn Barber as President of the NAACP.

The NAACP is holding its Annual Meeting next weekend at the New York Hilton. (No word on if Paris Hilton will be there.) I won't be attending. But, I expect those that do will be electing leaders for the upcoming year.

This group has had problems in the past. La Shawn (if I may be so familiar) has written on the group's problems, and has called it a dinosaur, even going so far as to call for its extinction.

Last month, Chris Muir (who pens the "Day By Day" cartoon) contacted her about an upcoming cartoon. Today, the cartoon came out, and was tied in with another story.

Chris' idea of La Shawn Barber as head of the NAACP is an interesting one. The organization has a long, storied history. But events lately have caused it to rival the UN for incompetence and scandal. If the NAACP had blue helmets and guns, they could be neck-and-neck. Anyway, they have problems. And La Shawn Barber might just be what they need.

There are a couple of obstacles, however. One is La Shawn Barber herself. She says she doesn't have time to fool with them. Also, she is, as she describes herself, "a believer in and follower of Jesus Christ ... (and a) former liberal and current renegade supporter of conservative ideals." That's appears to be obstacle to advancement. And that's a shame.

The NAACP isn't the only group that could benefit from someone like that in charge. In fact, I cannot think of a single organization that would not benefit from someone like that in charge.
