As Someone Said: Disappointed Lately?
I was a lukewarm supporter of Sen. Obama given his centrist stand on most issues that I care about. His opposition the Bu$hCo's vanity war not withstanding, he really screwed up by supporting the FISA bill, after saying he would not support it. Well, he won the presidency with the support of a lot of progressives in the world of the Intertubes (although the biggest tube of them all, Sen. Stevens, gets to do an 85 year old slink back to Alaska). I, for one, was so horrified, disgusted, just plain fucking angry at Bu$hCo, et.al., that anyone could have put a bumpersticker on my truck. We've got change alright: a proposed AG with more friends in suits than blue jeans, a love affair with Joe LIEberman (that one really hurt, but the 43 totally spineless Democrats deserve all the criticism & anger they will get), & a promise (?) not to prosecute those who tortured in my name & yours. I suppose Sen. Obama is better than Sen. McCain, but on these three issues: the AG, LIEberman, & prosecuting tortureerrs, someone please explain how McCain would have differed from Obama, come on, someone, explain it to me.
So, my loyal four readers, I'd like you to read this, then come back & we will talk about change we can believe in.
