I liked President Obama's speech yesterday--how could I not--and it was mighty fine to have an adult in the room, so to speak, especially after witnessing Sarah Palin's self-serving rant after the Giffords shootings. If we're going to have a spokesperson for corporate rule and imperialism in the White House, at least we can have one who isn't as embarrassing to listen to. But that brings up the broader problem, of course--that we have only elected a new spokesperson for the ruling billionaires. I have a subversive thought to offer--wouldn't you like to be able to elect a coordinator for democratic rule, instead? That's small-d democratic rule, the dangerous kind. The kind that doesn't have billionaires.
