Down the Drain Goes John McCain
Though I did watch Keith Olbermann, I took the advice of many people whose opinions I respect and avoided all the other talking heads last night. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
The Washington Post (finally) endorsed Obama. I think Joe the Plumber (who isn't named Joe and isn't a plumber and doesn't make the money he said he did and doesn't even pay his taxes) might have, once and for all, convinced the editors at the Post that it was time to take a stand. "Joe the Plumber" is the perfect trickster archetype. Wow.
I'm still not sure what will happen November 4th. Plenty of Americans think differently than I do. We'll see.
In the meantime, it's heartening to see the Post support Obama. Read it and weep, John.
