they are drinking rain water… I say they are laughing at politics…
Smart of them… I don’t think I had fully lived as a mere civilian observer of politics til I stumbled upon Smerconish, hearing a reactionary, Republican, fake populist (yet another!) Philadelphia radio jock defend and promote Obama. As I recall, he endorsed him in the primary tho unable to vote for him – and now will vote for him next month.
On the other side of the room, Nancy is on with Charlie Rose – for the hour. If Smerconish gives me whiplash, Nancy has long given me a headache, rather of the sinus variety… As I slithered past TNR, I saw John McWhorter (who supports Ob) has up some sort of blither on race and Obama. Think he is saying there is no racism. Tho knowing McWhorter it will be more complicated – and if you’d rather wring your Democratic, liberal or leftischer hands down to the bone over Obamafied racism (does any other racism matter?), The Atlantic is here to serve. The schnauzers at The Corner loved the McWhorter take……. Thankfully, I cannot read it for the pounding behind my eyeballs.
Last seen, McCain had gone a bit gamey, wounded at the watering hole and dragging a leg, a pack of hyenas was seen following close behind. I’d say the same of Obama. The hyena pack, I mean…
If I could, I’d be running off to join the pelicans.
