Colin Powell on calling Obama Muslim

Really impressed by this part of Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama:

I’m also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said such things as, “Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.” Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian. He’s always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is?? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer’s no, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, “He’s a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists.” This is not the way we should be doing it in America.

Citizenship

My ballot was waiting for me when I got home from work today. I was very excited. This is the first time I have voted in Whatcom Country since I moved up here for college 8 years ago. I proceeded to fill out my ballot while blasting Queen – We Are The Champions on repeat. Good times. I don’t think the cat was amused.

Green Collar Jobs

Tonight’s democratic debate has been my least favorite of them all. They’re actually getting into some details now, but the back and forth on health care in the beginning was awful. I do love how hard the moderators are having to work to get the candidates to switch topics.
