Omar Little

The Wire’s best badass turned The Wire’s best witness 🙂

Update: it appears President Obama is a fan of Omar Little too:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama joins the ranks of the many television critics to describe HBO’s The Wire as the best show on television. Obama also channels many basketball players and our blog buddy Shana Naomi at Popnography to say his favorite character is “Omar Little”, the black gay homothug and stickup artist with the heart of gold.

“Omar is a great guy,” the senator tells the Las Vegas Sun. “That’s not an endorsement. He’s not my favorite person, but he’s a fascinating character.”

Much more context if you listen to the accompanying audio interview. “He’s this black, gay gangster who only robs drug dealers, and then gives back,” Obama exlains in the audio interview. “He’s the toughest, baddest guy on this show, but he’s gay, you know. And it’s really interesting.”
