Obama Begging Me To Not Vote For Him

10 07 2008

Senator Obama,

I am genuinely disappointed that you chose to support the recent FISA bill.  I and the rest of America have been looking to Democrats, and more particularly you, for strong leadership to stand up to the fascist fear mongering of the Bush administration.  You have failed us.  You could have made a stand and your leadership could have made a difference, but instead you chose to take the politically expedient route.  You sold me and every other American out who believed you were different, and worse you abandoned the Constitution when it needed your protection the most.

This bill was no compromise, it was a cowardly capitulation to an administration that continues to lie and thumb it’s nose at congressional oversight.  So now you reward the most unpopular president in American history and the corporations that colluded with him to break the law and the nation’s trust by giving them a free pass to continue to do so.  It is no surprise that the approval rating of congress is in single digits when all we want is someone to hold this administration accountable.  You have failed miserably.

Unless I hear some strong promises to correct this appalling failure of judgment I will have no choice but to stay home come November because I see no candidate worthy of my vote here.

Respectfully,
Super Jesus

PS: Thanks for making me look like a fool for supporting you in the primary because even Hillary voted against it!

Evolution 150 Years Old Today!

1 07 2008

Okay that headline is of course not entirely accurate since evolution has been in effect since the very first cells formed, however it was on 1 July 1858 (150 years ago today) that the idea of natural selection was first presented to the public.

Of course don’t tell anyone in Texas or Louisiana because they’ll just get all upset that you’re making them think too hard.

The Beagle Project has a summary of the significance of this day in scientific history.

Happy Darwin Day!
