About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Why I Like Obama

Never mind he has only two year's service in the Senate. Forget his so-called lack of leadership experience. Barack Obama has the ability to inspire us to the better angels of our nature. What more do we need from a President?

Sock Puppet was Governor of a backwards southern state. His ability to inspire is limited to his open-mouthed breathing.

Obama's one big policy statement was so right it's ridiculous. "This is the wrong war at the wrong place in the wrong time." Who else among the Presidential pretenders can claim that righteous position? Not Hillary. Not Edwards. Forget Kerry. Certainly not McClain.

A President can't be all things to all people. But, he or she should be intelligent enough to know how to compel us as a people to do better things. In the aftermath of 9/11 Sock Puppet urged us to shop. What more need be said?
