(His blog header pic says it all.)
Here's what it's all about:
This is the philosophy of the blog:
Don't get bogged down on detail - always strive to see the big picture.
When in a forest, look at the trees, but also make sure you don't miss the forest all around you.
Look at the news and analyze WHY it's happening, not just HOW and WHEN.
If you like this philosophy, this is the blog for you as I analyze today's news and tell you what is behind the scenes, who the real players are and what are their motivations.
In simpler English, I cut thru the bullshit for you.
For example, read his take on what's really behind Hillary's recent surge:
As we all know, Hillary Clinton won in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island.
How come these states voted for Clinton when virtually all other states voted for Obama? Is it Hillary's new strategy? Did a scandal I missed happen to Obama? Perhaps the democratic voters in those states are contrarians, and vote for Hillary for fun?
It's much simpler.
The GOP primary is done, and McCain won the republican nomination for president.
Now, all the republicans that live in the states that did not get to vote yet... won't. Because McCain ALREADY WON the republican nomination. There is no point.
There's only one republican left in the race - John "bomb bomb bomb Iran" McCain.
What's a republican voter to do?
It's simple - the republican voter will vote in the democratic primary for his state, and vote for the WEAKEST democrat nominee, that McCain could beat, to help his republican party.
That would be you, Hillary.
Don't believe me?
Rush Limbaugh on FOX "news":I don't know if the audience is mobilizing or not. I am urging people — I am using a phrase — the Republicans — our nominee is chosen. It's John McCain.
Texas is open. And I want Hillary to stay in this, Laura. This is too good a soap opera. We need Barack Obama bloodied up politically (...)
This is the presidency of the United States you're talking about. I want our party to win. I want the Democrats to lose. They're in the midst of tearing themselves apart right now. It is fascinating to watch, and it's all going to stop if Hillary loses.
So yes, I'm asking to cross over and, if they can stomach it — I know it's a difficult thing to do to vote for a Clinton — but it will sustain this soap opera, and it's something I think we need. It would be fun, too.
The Yoo Ess Ey election system is beyond broken - it truly is fucked up.
This would be all avoided of course if we as a nation had a one day national, direct vote (as in actual democracy) system to choose a president.
That way, the media won't be able to tell us that a candidate has no chance, because they wouldn't know it. We wouldn't need to worry about superdelegates, because one person = one vote eliminates this bullshit. You wouldn't worry if you are throwing your vote away voting for Kucinich, Ron Paul or Gravel... because as you cast your vote, no one will know who is winning and who is losing...
But we live in the Yoo Ess of Ey - and we get this farce shoved into our faces, and told it's a democracy...
