What about santa's cookies? I suppose parents eat those too?

It's nice that USA Today has decided to be charitable and give a couple of knuckleheads from the The Politico a national platform but you'd think they'd at least vet it for, I don't know, any connection to reality before they print the sucker. "Liberal Views Could Hurt Obama." Really?

Just what are Obama's wacky, out-of-the-mainstream far-left moonbat views anyway? Why, they're all nicely summed up at the beginning of the opinion piece-

When Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was seeking state office a dozen years ago, he took unabashedly liberal positions: flatly opposed to capital punishment, in support of a federal single-payer health plan, against any restrictions on abortion, and in support of state laws to ban the manufacture, sale and even possession of handguns.

Gasp! What a crazzzzyyyyy guy.

For those part those views could be classified as fairly centrist. I would say that most Americans would share the majority of Obama's positions on anything outside of capital punishment. But that misses the point.

Obama doesn't have a left-wing problem he has a right-wing problem. His positions in the campaign have come squarely down on the side of what the Washington village considers to be moderate these days. That means that on a whole variety of issues he solidly to the right of where most of the country is on these issues. Obviously Democratic consultants have molded the man into the sort of weak mush that the Democratic party base, and the country as a whole, don't want or need.
Obama is running for President of Washington D.C. Meanwhile- America still needs a leader.
