It's really worth watching Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama on Meet the Press today... After saying that we know that Obama is a Christian, Powell asks, "So what if he is [a muslim]? Is there something wrong with being a muslim in this country?" Colin Powell has a lot to answer for but his endorsement today is a great anti-racist statement that no one else (that I know of anyway) in the public eye had has the balls to make.

The only thing I would say is that his endorsement could have come earlier, but as a Republican, it's a great step for him to take.

The picture Powell seems to be talking about.

Plus, go read [livejournal.com profile] culpster's comment.

You gotta watch Powell's further and complete repudiation of McCain's campaign, and the good old common sense statements (taxes are not evil!) that just don't get bandied about in the media.
