I revisited my old stomping grounds today to see (hear?) Aaron McGruder speak at UCI as part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. festivities. I saw him speak at UCI a couple of years ago, although this time the crowd was much larger and a lot more organized. Crystal Cove auditorium was nearly filled to capacity, while there couldn’t have been more than 30 people when I last saw him. Good Bush-bashing and complaints made about the news media were done all around. I especially dug his comparison of the Democratic party to Apple.
(Paraphrased) I see the Democratic party a lot like the Macintosh. It’s artsy and creative. It’s better? I don’t see why everyone isn’t using it. And Barack Obama is a lot like their iPod. Popular, but not enough to win everyone over.
