If Only Shakespeare Had Known How To Twitter

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/04/opinion/04dowd.html?_r=2&ref=opinion Fun story, full of Lear references, about how John McCain (the man who professed last year to not even knowing how to send e-mail) is now on Twitter.  Everybody is quite sure that it’s his people doing it, by the way, not him.  To be fair to the man, his long time injuries prevent him from sitting at a keyboard for extended periods. It is not a piece that is positive on Obama, in case you’d like to know that up front.  But it is hard to deny the facts (I am a supporter of Obama, not McCain) – there’s lots and lots and lots of wasteful spending still going on, now with Obama’s signature on it.   Can’t really argue that.  The best you can say to defend it is “Picking your battles.”   McCain’s entire argument seemed to be about trimming 7 billion dollars – from a 410 billion dollar bill.  Hopefully (and note I’m saying hopefully, not definitely!), Obama will pick some bigger battles to fight.
