I’m in total agreement with John Cole here – I’m fascinated with the ongoings in Iran, but when you’re talking about a sovereign nation experiencing a popular uprising against a clearly rigged election, changing your link color to to #00CC00 does not make you an active participant and/or expert in the fight against the country’s totalitarian regime.

It’s why Obama’s silence is not “cowardly”, any more than me refusing to walk barefoot across broken glass in a tuberculosis ward makes me a sniveling little pansy. John McCain proving what a terrible President he would have been may have that end-of-movie “facing down the asteroid” feel to it, but it would also be, to put it charitably, goddamn stupid.
