"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Remember that scene in The Matrix where Keanau Reeves delivers his signature line? He's on top of the building and Trinity leaps 200 feet across the street to the next building. His reaction is...


Well, I just had one of those moments. Turns out that Powell is not the only former Republican big-shot to endorse Obama. A much more surprising one has emerged: Ken Adelman. In an e-mail he outlines why he has chosen to support Obama and we learn once again that Sarah Palin is quite the boat anchor for the GOP ticket.
The most important decision John McCain made in his long campaign was deciding on a running mate.

That decision showed appalling lack of judgment. Not only is Sarah Palin not close to being acceptable in high office—I would not have hired her for even a mid-level post in the arms-control agency. But that selection contradicted McCain’s main two, and best two, themes for his campaign—Country First, and experience counts. Neither can he credibly claim, post-Palin pick.

You betcha'!
