AltTulsa happened to be in a used bookstore the other day checking out the latest literary and historical bargains.
We found a few decent deals, but what caught our attention was a big stack of Shelby Steele's 2007 political work on the candidacy of Sen. Barack Obama.
The title says it all about Steele's faulty crystal ball: A Bound Man: Why We Are Excited About Obama and Why He Can't Win.
UPDATE: We see that Steele is pontificating about Obama and race this week in the Wall Street Journal. Given his previous prediction, however, we'd say Steele has no room to talk. After all, had his original prediction been true, John McCain would be president and Steele would have to come up with a new whipping boy.
