Wow. Obama has some really classy supporters. Since he already hangs out with thugs, he no doubt is as proud of them as they are of him.
[update friday night - looks like that didn't happen, after all, showing that even excepting west Pennsylvania racist rednecks, there's plenty of low-class to go around. I do, however, stand by the statement about consorting with thugs.]
If my apartment gets trashed after the election by rioters, will FEMA hook me up? Just wondering....
Here's a great article by Thomas Sowell entitled "Do Facts Matter?"
I have to say this evening that I'm feeling a little disheartened. Earlier this week I had occasion to see a friend and former neighbor who has always prided himself on being a conservative black republican. I asked him if he was as sick of election season as I am, and he said "I'm doing my own thing, tuning it out. I was going to vote for McCain, but then he picked Palin and she won't quit running her mouth, so now I'm going to have to vote for Obama." I wanted to say that I was happy to hear he wasn't voting for Obama for some lame reason.
I scraped my jaw off the floor and said "I like Sarah" and he said "she's hot, but she's not saying anything."
I just couldn't even begin to argue with him. I mean, how does one span the gulf between espousing conservative Republican ideology to justify voting for Obama? If I morally couldn't vote for one candidate, I'd seek out the candidate who best represented my views, rather than the person who SHOULD have gotten my vote. I'm not accusing anyone of anything, but I think Palin is just an excuse for him, and not the real reason he's voting for B.O.
We are cursed to live in interesting times, it would appear.
