props to McCain

Today McCain corrected a supporter who called Obama "an Arab". He said he disagrees with Obama on positions, thinks he (McCain) would make a better president, but that Obama is a decent man and nobody should be "scared of him". This is the McCain I liked a few years ago and I am happy to see him return. I don't think it will bring him the presidency but it might mean a defeat with honor. I hope that's how it goes.

I have an intelligent friend who is buying the stories and is angry at the media for not looking more closely at Obama's background. He is buying the nonsense about Wright, Ayers, and others. I am frankly dumbfounded that a thoughtful, intelligent person would come to this position. But I also know him to shoot from the hip. He is perhaps not all that introspective and does not do the research that is needed. It's discouraging, though, to see this. What is it that causes some people to buy outrageous conspiracy theories whole hog? What's going on there?
