Abdication of Principles

Quote of the Day

"As Democrats, we have become so afraid of losing this election that we’re afraid to hold Barack Obama accountable for changing directions or criticize him at all. The campaign has thus become a disturbing cult of personality, and a minefield of booby traps for black leaders, old white guys, anyone who strays off message and now any voice of satire or wit. With luck, this [New Yorker] cover will finally start a discussion about the dangers of unequivocal support for one person, and the abdication of principles in the face of fear of losing votes."
