Obama's Deci$ion

The teevee talking heads are all upset that Obama is not sticking with his public funding pledge (which wasn't really a pledge but whatever).


I suppose I should be disappointed but the fact is that just I'm too damn happy to see a guy who is raising heretofore unheard of amounts of money by appealing to regular everyday peeps like me donating $20 at a time. Not lobbyists. Not big biz donors. Not $2000 a plate dinners with Lincoln bedroom overnight giveaways. Just people who are excited about participating in the political process for a change.

Now THAT'S democracy!

HuffPo has a slightly more logical defense here.
