I wrote this in response to a post on Political leaning
It is really hard for me to have hope when I see campaign commercials which are laughably misleading and realize that people are actually going to fall for that shit. Politics is now all about marketing. Ron Paul will never be president and Ralph Nader will never be president because neither of them is marketable. Palin could definitely be elected. It won't happen because she's no doubt realized by now that being president is much less financially lucrative than not being president. As a matter of fact, being against the dominant party is more financially lucrative than being for it. You know that deep down Rush and Glenn were glad Obama won. I'm sure their ratings have gone up since he was elected. People need to realize that we have a system which CAN put the power in their hands, if they choose to seize it. Alot has being written about how Obama is too "professorial". Put aside the fact that it's not true for a moment. Assuming he is "professorial", WHAT THE FUCK is WRONG with that? We don't want a smart president? People are too dumb to understand a "professor"? I need to stop. I'm just going to post this to my blog. It'd be cool if you checked it out.
