Phil Klein Endorses Obama

OK, that’s a slight distortion:

Why I’d back Obama over Ron Paul

What I can’t understand is why Phil felt the need to write a column like that. Nobody who supports Ron Paul is open to persuasion, and Republicans who don’t support Ron Paul are unlikely to undergo a last-minute conversion at this point. (Unless, like Kent Sorenson, they’re sold-out backstabbers.)

Klein seems to be making a “here, top this” gesture, striving for the championship in the Anti-Ron Paul Derby. And, of course, his criticism will be dismissed by Paul’s supporters with two words: “Israel lobby.”

    No better at all. The man isn’t enough different from Obama to matter.

    I strongly suspect you’re proof.

    Well, that’s better than being called “neocon” by the Paul “trash talkers” all the time.

    Hey I don’t speak for nobody but myself. I don’t speak for “conservatives”, nor do I try to. I’m not a fucking robot, so shove it up your ass.
