Thought of the Day
Christopher Hitchens on Barack Obama (from an essay sub-titled Why is Obama so vapid, hesitant, and gutless?)
Labels: Christopher Hitchens quote
For Gov. Palin, truthiness is next to godliness. Or maybe it's cronyism is next to godliness. Or maybe it's secretiveness is next to godliness.
See, I wasn't comparing notes. I just wasn't buying what everybody was selling. That would include, by way of example but not by limitation, Obama, Biden, Palin, and McCain.
Call me dreamer, call me naive, but I just don't think it's important how well you an stand up in front of 18,000 or 80,000 people and deliver a canned speech written by a professional speech writer. Nor do I think the debates are a measure of anything required for one to be a good president.
As usual, I will vote for the person who is the lessor of two evils. I just wrote that and realized that my use of "lessor" instead of "lesser" was a written pun; a Freudian slip; or both.
I have concluded that one candidate is hollow a suit while the other is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
