In 1860 a nation looked to a relative Illinois unknown to make a wrong world right. It is time to look to Illinois again. Like Lincoln, another unknown from Illinois, Barack Obama may be criticized for lack of experience in a real political world. Our world has had enough of the old, enough of division, of cruel hands that would pull our nation apart. Our nation must have better. Our nation needs a healing spirit where all are recognized for who they are and who they might best be. Our nation needs hands that put no one down and raise all of us up.

The Heretik Joe Ivory Mattingly sees that healing spirit and feels the power of those hands in the voice of Barack Obama of Illinois. I declare for Obama 2008.

WHY TOM RIDGE IS UNFIT FOR PUBLIC OFFICE

Maxspeak

From Sunday's very long Washinton Post article on Homeland Security insecurity, which features among other lapses contractors robbing the Federal government blind:

As chief of the Homeland Security Department, Ridge grew frustrated by the drumbeat of bad news contained in the audits, particularly from his department's own office of inspector general, according to Ervin. Twice last year, Ridge summoned the inspector general to his office to complain about his reports, according to Ervin.

Ridge was particularly upset with one report documenting problems with a visa-waiver program and another describing difficulties with terrorist watch lists, Ervin said.

"He said he regarded the reports as being unduly critical," said Ervin, whose political appointment expired in December and who now works at a District think tank. "He was trying to make his displeasure known."
