I’ve been feeling rather despondent lately over the state of things in my native land. Well, “lately” could mean most of my life, I suppose, but the past few days I’ve been feeling angrier than usual about Bush, the Christian Wrong, and all of that.

But there’s not much I can say that would surprise you. So I’ll just say that I think Barack Obama seems like a decent human being. Except for this “reconciling faith and politics” stuff. I know that in the US you have to pay lip service to Christianity to get elected, but I really wish that wasn’t the case.
