McCain Sucks, Palin Sucks = No Bush left behind

Wow! Arcon Ken Adelman supports Obama!

Posted on: October 21, 2008


The New Yorker reports that lifelong conservative Republican Ken Adelman is also supporting Barack Obama.

In “First Colin Powell, Now…” author George Packer writes how Adelman goes way back with a list of who’s who in the rightest of right column as friends and coworkers in Republican administrations.

But…

In recent years, Adelman and his friends Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz fell out over his criticisms of the botching of the Iraq War. Still, he remains a bona-fide hawk (“not really a neo-con but a con-con”) who has never supported a Democrat for President in his life. Two weeks from now that’s going to change: Ken Adelman intends to vote for Barack Obama. He can hardly believe it himself.”

In Adelman Addendum

Adelman added:

The Republican handling of the war made me value “experience” far less. If Cheney, Rumsfeld & Powell are the epitome of experience, I’ll take the alternative. They’ve given experience a bad name. “Further thought: McCain’s campaign soured me a lot. His hiring of the Bush attack squad, South Carolina 2000, made me view this honorable man as heading a dishonorable effort. And that’s still the case. It’s pretty disgusting, what he’s doing…”
