Comment of the day
The question of how (or whether) to respond electorally to the Obamacon has been answered many ways, but none better than the one I encountered today in FDL's special section on marijuana legalization, JUST SAY NOW .COM. In a Jon Walker thread entitled White House Offers Dismissive Response to Marijuana Petitions, zapkitty comments:
… so you’d rather that Obama be rewarded for backstabbing his base with the ability to pack the courts with corporate tools instead of religious fools?
Got news for you: either way we lose… and game theory, the Prisoner’s Dilemma, ensures that we lose much worse if we are not seen as willing to punish Obama for his betrayals.
zapkitty's right. A vote for Obama is a vote for the scam that's been run on us the last 35 years.
