Mr. Green Endorses...

While the Mr. Green editorial staff continues to agonize over which candidate for president is less unpalatable, we can at least offer our readers the following unqualified endorsement in the Illinois senate race: Democrat Barack Obama.

We endorse Obama for the sole reason that unlike Republican candidate Alan Keyes, Obama is not crazier than a shithouse rat.

Oh sure, there are lots of issues and such, but on the most important question, "Is this candidate totally and completely looney toons?", we believe that Obama fares much better than Keyes, who is absolutely batshit.

Obama for Senate: He's sane.

I can't believe I am actually going to say this because I am a staunch Republican (or was until Keyes), but you are right. Alan Keyes is a raving loon. He latest and greatest idea that I heard of was exempting ancestors of slaves from federal taxes.

Hooeee! Gives me the chills. Can't even hold my nose and vote for that guy.

I think the only drama will be if Obama can sustain his 40+ points lead through Election Day.

And let's not forget the diversity Bar'ack Obama would bring to the Senate, which currently lacks a Klingon representative.

Rick Santorum is a cling-on. Does that count?
