5 Days

Just so you know, I am not at all happy with the straw man campaign that’s being run by the opposition party. Yeah, its fun to think of George W. Bush as a straw man and its always fun to knock a straw man down but its still just a straw man and not the actual candidate that has enough issues on his own that a straw man shouldn’t be required.

But here’s the problem, if you personally attack Sen. McCain you have no place to say he’s the one slinging the mud. No one is going to mind you slinging a little mud on a lame duck president whose approval rating is in the gutter.

I’d love to find a righteous man that I could support but he isn’t out there this year.

    Looking for a “Righteous Man” in politics? Better borrow Diogenes’s lamp.

    I have been thinking about the mess facing the “winner” today over the next four years…and more.

    Thomas Friedman had a good column http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/02/opinion/02friedman.html?_r=1&em&oref=slogin in the NYT this Sunday. This paragraph made some good points in that regard:

    “Never has one generation spent so much of its children’s wealth in such a short period of time with so little to show for it as in the Bush years. Under George W. Bush, America has foisted onto future generations a huge financial burden to finance our current tax cuts, wars and now bailouts. Just paying off those debts will require significant sacrifices. But when you add the destruction of wealth that has taken place in the last two months in the markets, and the need for more bailouts, you understand why this is not going to be a painless recovery.”

    O tempora, O mores!
