Warts and All
One of my favorite political commentators is Tom Tomorrow. My apologies if I already linked to this cartoon.
After criticizing both Democratic candidates, because quite frankly there are lots of flies on both of them, he lets us know that he prefers either of them to McCain. A man after mine own heart is Senor Manana.
He also advises us to grow up, and stop conducting our elections in the manner of a junior high school student body election:
Honestly, I don't understand why people think the candidate they prefer should be treated with blind adulation...they're not messiahs, they're job applicants -- and it's our responsibilites as citizens to look seriously at their strengths AND their flaws.
He goes on to cite Spitzer's crash-and-burn act as evidence of why we need to do that.
He couldn't have made it any clearer.
