Quote Of The Day: Obamarama Edition

Contrary to what you might think from the way the media cover politics, elections are not about the careers of politicians but about the fate of the country. That fate is definitely on the line now with a nuclear Iran and a nuclear North Korea looming over our children's future.
-- Thomas Sowell

The quote is from Sowell's Town Hall column, which leads with:
Perhaps nothing so captures the superficial, frivolous and irresponsible spirit of our times like the sudden boomlet for Barack Obama as a candidate for President of the United States.
There is nothing frivolous and much irresponsible about thinking candidates like Obama and Harold Ford, who offer a pleasant-seeming alternative to the Dem bombasity of Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean, would be nice guys to elect.

Electing them, Sowell reminds us, means putting people in power who should not be in power at this time. Not so much because they'd end the world as we know it, but because they would fritter time away on unnecessary platform planks and revenge impeachments at a time when the nation needs to be focused on the critical issue of the threat posed by radical Islam and L'il Kim Jong Il.

With Bush so hated and Cheney having a faulty ticker and getting more than his fair share of hate, we need to remember that if the Dems take the house, Pelosi is two heartbeats away from the presidency.
