Joe the Plumber springs a leak on Fox News.
I was on a panel the other night with Orson Scott Card, as hard-line a hardliner on the Middle East as can be found (sample argument: We had to invade an Arab country after 9/11, we had no choice), and even he allowed that Obama would support Israel.
Scott was a good panelist and an affable dinner-table companion. Our conversation on the issues never got to Teh Gay, a subject that makes Scott's head explode, and I politely disagreed when he tried to blame the whole economic mess on loans to poor people (he politely allowed that the situation was indeed more complicated), and I differed somewhat more sharply when he said nobody comes up with well-articulated, reasoned criticisms of GW Bush. We agreed on plenty of things, and I think we (along with Ogi Overman) kept the crowd awake.
