Has anyone checked on Sam?

John, I can and have made arguments for an Obama presidency. Unlike you and the other partisan sycophants here, I am able to see rational arguments that favor my opponents.

But read the Buckley piece further and at the end he basically says that Obama has the potential to be a great leader- but not if he implements the policies he is campaigning on now. I can't argue with that, but what does it say about Obama's agenda- the one that you and other lefties are pushing? The endorsement is of Obama the man, not his ideas. I have made similar endorsements of Obama myself on my blog during the primaries. I'm not shocked in the least.

What would be shocking is if any of you showed anywhere close to the objectivity I have shown in this race. You are incapable of it because in your heart you truly believe that conservatives are evil and the Republican party is illegitimate. Therefore no tactic- including hypocrisy and dishonesty- is out of bounds to defeat them.

I don't want Obama to win, but trust me, I have given a number of reasons why an Obama victory might not be so bad. The record is there if you choose to view it.

I'll respond to this bit of hackery with two points. (1)The Republican Party doesn't need me to prove that it is illegitimate. It's doing fine proving that all on its own.

(2) I endorsed you in your race. Publicly, in letters to the editor. Guess that wasn't objective or nonpartisan enough for you.

You did, John and I really appreciated that. That isn't really what we are talking about here, though. I specifically referred to this race where I have been far more generous to Obama and Biden than any of the regulars around here have been to McCain and Palin.

That's like attacking someone for being far more complementary to Mozart than Salieri.
