See Andrew Sullivan here for a nice blurb on Obama and gay rights.
Yes, I’ve read the dirt on Oba’s early political career and yes, it is dirt. He’s a fucking politician; I have no illusions about him being “clean”, I just think he’s a much better choice than Clinton(s) or McCain. Did anyone in their right mind think Kennedy was clean? He was one of the most scandalous motherfuckers out there, yet he still managed to inspire. Just like his brother. Yes, that makes me afraid someone will try to kill Oba. Hopefully the SS is in better shape now. Violent bits of America hate inspirational leaders.
Also, great blog entry here on Obama & the “race card”.
Great blog here on his name & its context in Americana/politics.
Seriously, check ’em all out.
