The Reaction in Review (Oct. 19, 2008)

A weekend's Reactions that deserve a second look:


By Michael J.W. Stickings: "Powell for Obama" -- Michael's very insightful post, on Colin Powell's unambiguous endorsement of Barack Obama for president, includes good critique of the Republican right-wing's upset over the news.

By Creature: "A people-powered campaign" -- Creature's short and sweet comment on Obama's fantastic fundraising.


By Mustang Bobby: "The Palin factor" -- Bobby's great post explores the recent Obama endorsements by several major newspapers, noting that McCain's Veep choice was the "loser" factor with all the editorial boards.

By Libby Spencer: "The return of McCarthyism," & "Beating the press" -- Your reviewer was unable to choose between these two equally great posts commenting on these scary "reactionary" (I use the word in it's most negative political meaning) times in presidential politics.
By J. Thomas Duffy: "Yes, Virginia, there is a real Virginia" -- Duffy has this wonderful way of dissecting Republican ridiculousness -- this time the recent incrediblly divisive comments of three Republican women about who represents the "real America," with Nancy Pfotenhauer as the star.
