  1. Gonzalez is largely right. Although I’d resist any implications that Obama is deliberately two-faced, at least no more or less than the average human. Gonzalez highlights many of the problems I have always had with Obama. But this election comes down to two candidates (unfortunately — I wish Nader were viable), and of the two the choice is clear to me. In other words, I believe that all of the strikes against Obama (which Gonzalez points out) are amplified ten-fold in McCain.

    Also, Obama’s sexier.

    QFT.

    The US electorate just isn’t prepared for the kind of radical change espoused by Nader.

  3. Well I was qfting (ugh internet slang does not verb well) the stuff outside of the parenthesis really.

    Yes Paul was fun (talking enough about him got my wife to vote for him the primary here) but even less realistic. Plus for every good idea he had a terrible one. Like wanting to pass an amendment barring people born in the US from being citizens. I view him as a fascinatingly unique politician, but a deeply flawed one. That he actually has real principles he is deeply committed to is frankly attractive. (Also, my father in law’s name is Ron Paul!)

    But Barr? Puhleeze. As far as I’m concerned he’s just a hack who got drummed out of Congress and is riding a wave to stay in the limelight as much as he can.

    I have to admit that I don’t know as much about Nader as I’d like.
