I just can't believe the hero-worship this guy still commands from otherwise-intelligent people. Okay, I'll forgive the guy who wants to be able to tell his grandchildren that he voted for the first black president. But to double-down on him!?!? I was driving through an upscale neighborhood yesterday that had mostly Obama yard signs displayed in front of the house. A guy was raking leaves at one of them, so I pulled into the driveway. He ambled over to my car, smiling, and asked if he could help me. I said, "No, I just wanted to see what an Obama supporter looks like up close." I've never seen such a perplexed expression in my life as I drove away.
