    Jeff Medcalf in a comment on a post by Rand Simberg:

    It’s funny, but Adelman exactly fits a pattern I’ve been noticing. Excluding low-information voters, who largely vote on emotional or tribal bases, the people that I am seeing supporting Obama largely hope that he doesn’t mean what he says, while those that oppose him largely believe he means exactly what he says.

    Hmm, where have we read similar ideas?

    UPDATE: Richard Epstein’s thoughts.

      Vote the Opportunist 2008! Haha, do any of these thoughtful chin-pullers have any explanation for the Chicago/Springfield/Senate career of said opportunist (hey, all politicians are, I know) and why wouldn’t that be indicative of future behavior?

      Here’s hoping past is not prologue 2008!

      I think a lot of people are projecting their hopes onto Obama. His lack of achievements and track record become a feature instead of a bug. Anyone even mildly left of center can see in him anything they want.

      He’s the Rorschach candidate.

      People defend this projected image to themselves by simply deciding he’s lying for political purposes every time he says something they do not like.

      I love the fact that Obama is cheering for both the Phills and the Rays. If he can’t make a decision on what team to root for, how is he ever going to make a decisive executive decision as president. I didn’t really hear too many MSM illuminati report on this today. Interesting…

      For a split second I was thinking “You mean like that guy in Watchmen?”

      Yah, everyone’s playing Civilizational Roulette hoping he’s only lying to the _other_ guyl.
