The recent Fed crisis has put things into perspective. When you read a headline stating that President George W. Bush is "working hard on the problem," you can't do anything but laugh. It puts into concrete form something we've all known as an abstract matter: President Bush is not a smart man.
That said, are John McCain or Barack Obama any better? I don't think so. I had separate problems with each, but couldn't quite find the right phrase to state how I felt. Another blogger has done it for me: "McCain sounds like a complete idiot, but he means well. Obama is no idiot, but he does not mean well."
And that, folks, sums up the "choice" we have in November.
