So I find the American political process completely mystifying. At this stage it seems apparent that you guys have reached the baroque stage of elections – a complicated, expensive edifice that references nothing but itself.1 Both the Democrat candidates would probably be on the right of the National party (our right wing). I read blogs of people who seem to see similar problems with the world than I do, even if they generally have less radical solutions, and I don’t understand the way they view this electoral process. So I’m going to ask a question of liberal/left-wing/progressive commentators, because I really want to know.
Who has said more that you agree with and less you disagree with Obama or Reverend Wright?
PS – the other thing I’ve been wondering is for Americans who are anti-war which is the more pertient question:
“What’s Obama doing meeting with Bill Ayers”
“What’s Bill Ayers doing meeting with Obama”
- unless I’ve got what baroque means wrong, in which case it’s something else [↩]
