Are ya gonna listen to me now?

Me, in Oct, 2008:

When he [Christopher Buckley on why he's voting for Obama] gets to the crux of his point, he says this:
But having a first-class temperament and a first-class intellect, President Obama will (I pray, secularly) surely understand that traditional left-politics aren’t going to get us out of this pit we’ve dug for ourselves.
Sounds like a huge leap of faith to me. Why would I imagine that Obama would do anything other than what his two autobiographies (at 47???), his record, or his campaign say he would do -- because he's intelligent? Because he's educated? Christopher ... really. An intelligent man bent on implementing the wrong ideas is far more dangerous than a man of lesser intelligence trying to implement the right ones.

Thanks a lot, Chris. Worked out well, wouldn't'cha say?

Of all the frivolity involved with the election of Obama the most disturbing part was the whole “Conservatives for Obama” movement. Still boggles me.
