Switcher

This may come as a shock to most of you, but I currently wish for Barack Obama to win the Democratic primary for three reasons in particular:

1) Obama’s economics speech at Cooper Union – This speech made all the wonky areas of my brain light up like Christmas. On top of that, I agreed with what he was saying.

2) Hillary’s sniper fire bullshit – This never should’ve happened because she knows better. “Misspoke” my ass. If getting kissed by little kids counts as sniper fire, then she got a frakload of experience as first lady.

3) Obama’s teflon exterior – Rev Wright happened and in the end, it not only didn’t hurt him it seemed to give him another sanctimonious platform and a boost to his polls. Americans love him like they love Reagan for reasons I still don’t understand.

Please note that this is not what I would deem support and I really would hate for it to be taken as an endorsement, but I do think that he’s the best chance for the Dems to win the Presidency at this time and I don’t think he’d fuck it up too badly should he gain the office. I still believe any of the top three candidates would be better than the current occupant.

Also, I believe Reagan will be on the money one day. In addition, politics are ludicrous and asinine and there’s a very great possibility that I am an idiot.
