…and I don’t know whether to despise him or move him to #1 on my all-time heroes list.

You know, I don’t care if the President is the smartest guy in the room. I don’t even care if he (or she) is in the top 5. But he damn sure needs to be smart enough to hire smart people, and he sure as hell needs to be smart enough to understand what they tell him!
We’ve already had 8 years of a President who doesn’t give a shit about hiring smart, qualified people, or about paying attention to their advice when he accidentally does hire one. When John McCain says that he doesn’t really know very much about economics, that scares the bejezus out of me. And the thought of having a person a heartbeat away from the presidency whose grasp of the English language is tenuous at best actually causes me to lose sleep.
Say what you will about Obama, but there is no denying that he is a smart, smart man. What’s so bad about that?

I usually try to not get to worked up by The Daily Show. I watch it to laugh. But sometimes they do too good a job of pointing out what bald-faced liars Republican operatives are, that it makes my blood boil. Watch September 3‘s episode, and watch what how completely full of shit Karl Rove, Bill O’Reilly*, Sean Hannity* and Dick Morris are. I can’t even list the bullshit they spout. Just watch the show. If that doesn’t convince you that these fuckers need to be thrown out of Washington with all possible haste, I don’t know what else to say.
*Yes, I meant to imply that Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity are Republican operatives. When they abandon any pretense of journalistic detachment, they deserve to be called what they are: craven party hacks.
