Common sense

From an expected source.

John Scalzi and I differ quite a bit politically, but he's always given the impression of being a decent guy, and not just at his book signings. Anyway, he makes the following comment, which I think everyone should read:

And at the end of the proverbial day, this election is the guys who are the headliners: about McCain and Obama, and their policies and plans, or lack thereof. One of these guys is a rock star, and the other isn’t — and to be honest, I hope that doesn’t matter, either. What should matter, and what I hope will matter, is the substance of the two candidates. Substance is not what people come to “rock stars” for. But it should be what we look for in a president.

Update: He also doesn't take kindly to anyone, regardless of political stripe, crapping in his sandbox:

Also remember that this site gets lots of people of all sorts of political persuasion visiting, including persuasions that aren’t mine, and I see that as a feature, not a bug. Also, you know what? Each of them are my guests. Please don’t be rude to my guests. Because then I might be compelled to be rude to you. And as we all know, I’m really good at being rude.

I've seen Mr. Scalzi angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.

1 Scalzi does what all of the dOhBama sycophants do: Throughly denigrate Palin and McCain, but offer nothing positive about their own ticket. This tactic is being replayed all over the intartoobs, to great effect among the d-d-duhBama crowd. While they all chortle and slap each other on the ass, their candidates still are less qualified than McCain/Palin. The self-congratulatory enthusiam will wane over the next 2 months as people learn about the Marxist tool and his entrenched politico sidekick.
