Here’s something to look forward to in the fall: the return of Merle to the group.
Update: Daryl as the Redneck Jedi.
“The Redneck Jedi is the latest iteration in a long line of film, television and literary archetypes that help Americans get comfortable with the unfamiliar. Of these, the “Magical Negro,” a term popularized by Spike Lee, is most noteworthy. An African American supporting character often portrayed as wise and spiritually deep — usually by Morgan Freeman — the Magical Negro’s sole purpose is to help a white protagonist get out of a jam.”
Note: Merle vs. T-Dog is likely to generate considerably more excitement than the Romney presidential campaign.
