Obama for President...

Christopher Hitchens endorses Obama and I agree. I have been stunned by McCain's performances at the debates. But, what most enraged me is not Sarah Palin - but the fact that McCain chose her without really knowing her.
On "the issues" in these closing weeks, there really isn't a very sharp or highly noticeable distinction to be made between the two nominees, and their "debates" have been cramped and boring affairs as a result. But the difference in character and temperament has become plainer by the day, and there is no decent way of avoiding the fact. Last week's so-called town-hall event showed Sen. John McCain to be someone suffering from an increasingly obvious and embarrassing deficit, both cognitive and physical. And the only public events that have so far featured his absurd choice of running mate have shown her to be a deceiving and unscrupulous woman utterly unversed in any of the needful political discourses but easily trained to utter preposterous lies and to appeal to the basest element of her audience. McCain occasionally remembers to stress matters like honor and to disown innuendoes and slanders, but this only makes him look both more senile and more cynical, since it cannot (can it?) be other than his wish and design that he has engaged a deputy who does the innuendoes and slanders for him.

... what purpose is served?

Saul Alynski (Marxist-Leninist author of Rules for Radicals) found the ideal pupil in one Barak Hussein Obama. Your endorsement proves my point.

Maybe you should read this before endorsing this Commie,

The Obama Files

He doesn't just want to chage the US he wants to change the world

You may want this muzzie as your world leader but I don't.
