Jesse Jackson, echoing the disappointment and betrayal that a growing number are feeling towards presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama, says "I wanna cut his nuts off."
Too late Jesse. Barack’s balls are long gone. He gave them up when he decided pandering for votes was more important than standing on principle.
Is Barack Obama a flip-flopper?
In recent weeks, the presumptive Democratic nominee has backed away from his opposition to a wiretapping law that would grant telephone companies de facto immunity for their participation in warrantless wiretapping after 9/11. He backed away from his pledge to stay within public-financing limits during the general election campaign. And he has recently signaled a willingness to shift ground on his plans to withdraw American troops from Iraq.
Some conservatives claim Obama is moving to the center to disguise his liberal leanings. And liberal bloggers are threatening to withdraw their support.
I never thought in terms of "bringing up geeks." But for much of my young life, I was a geek. Full disclosure: while other girls in junior high school had pictures of Leif Garrett in their lockers, I had pictures of Ronald Reagan.
It’s hard to get ahead socially in such a case, but so it was.
