A Sorely Needed Blog Post

Watched most of the debate tonight.

John McCain ought to be ashamed of himself.  Not because he treated Sen. Obama the way he did, but that he would treat anyone like that.  We don't need a president who would simply stick to his script and constantly fire talking points, and who would distort facts to fit his point.  We've had enough of that.  We need someone who is engaged in the conversation at hand.  Who seems comfortable discussing important issues with someone who holds an opposing viewpoint.  Someone who acts like they are up to the most stressful job in the world.

In this election, that choice is Barack Obama.

And to show my support, I went and bought a bunch of swag at the Obama store.  Guess which poster I overpaid for?
