Will on Cheney

One of the reasons I love George F. Will is that he never hesitates to skewer those you'd think he would support. In other words, he sees through the thin veneer of so-called conservatism of the current administration, the same veneer that makes me say I'm a libertarian democrat instead of a conservative democrat. (Libertarian is nowhere near liberal, despite the same first few letters, for those who want to keep score at home.)

Will's "Last Word" column in last week's Newsweek takes Cheney and the administration to task for their stubborn, revisionist, dishonest position on war in Iraq.

Thanks to kinnerc for the link to the Tompkins County Board of Elections sample ballots. These ballots, divided by town, will let local folks know who their election choices will be tomorrow. Please remember to vote!

I'm strongly supporting Eliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo for Governor and Attorney General, respectively, because I believe very strongly in both of them. I'm voting for Alan Hevesi for Comptroller and Hillary Clinton for Senator because I believe they're the best choice in their races, even if I don't think they're perfect. I'd be voting for Maurice Hinchey for Congress and George Winner for State Senate even if they weren't running unopposed. I'm voting for Barbara Lifton for Assembly because I think she's the much, much better choice despite her inadequate stance on gay marriage. And I'm voting for Peter Meskill for Sheriff because I think he's done a stellar job with limited resources over the last eight years, and should keep at it.

You don't have to agree with me! But please get out and vote.
