Public Financing

A lot is being made of Barack Obama's decision to not accept public financing for his presidential bid. John McCain is labelling him a flip-flopper (shocking). However, everyone seems to be missing a very important point.

Barack Obama's campaign is entirely publicly funded.

Unlike McW, Barack is not taking PAC money, lobbyist money. His campaign is being entirely funded by the millions of people who enthusiastically support him. McCain just has nothing on this guy.

So let's put up a link for donations, shall we?

Go Barack!

The Nadir Campaign

In a stroke (perhaps a literal one) of genius today, Ralph Nader claimed "There’s only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He’s half African-American. Whether that will make any difference, I don’t know. I haven’t heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What’s keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white?” [Rocky Mountain News]

Keep it up Ralph, you are killing your legacy and any hopes you may have had for relevance.
