Michelle's husband does too little, too late

For the first time in my adult life, I'm ashamed of my country.

Update: Obama's wannabe boyfriend, Andrew Sullivan (no link, per editorial policy) is predictably, well, Andrew Sullivan...

What a relief to have someone with this degree of restraint and prudence and empathy - refusing to be baited by Khamenei or the neocons, and yet taking an eloquent stand, as we all do, in defense of freedom and non-violence.
Yeah, and it only took him a week or so. Better late than never, huh?

Oh, and why don't you just go ahead and say "Jews" instead of "neocons" like you know you want to?

You and your man-crush are a fucking joke, and a bad one at that.

Update 2: A-fucking-men:
In 1823, first-term congressman Daniel Webster spoke up in support of the Greek revolution. Responding to critics who said that mere rhetorical support would do the revolutionaries no good, Webster said: "I hope it may. It may give them courage and spirit. It may assure them of public regard, teach them that they are not wholly forgotten by the civilized world, and inspire them with constancy in the pursuit of their great end."

And in any case, Webster continued, support for those fighting for freedom abroad was "due to our own character, and called for by our own duty."

That whirring noise you hear is Webster spinning furiously in his grave.
