So Colin Powell has endorsed Obama. I really don't see how this helps, and I can imagine it hurting. Powell's credibility was shot when he took his PowerPoint to the UN to lie deliver flawed intelligence as a ploy to justify the Iraq invasion. The satellite photos that he said were WMD manufacturing sites looked like the back of Wegmans to me, and wouldn't have fooled a Buffalo jury for a minute. Come to think of it, he didn't fool the UN, either, although somehow HRC and quite a few Americans were persuaded.

Powell got played for a chump, and he thinks this is payback time. Would have been nice if he'd come forward sometime before what is brewing up to be a pretty convincing win, and it would have been even better if he'd had the wit to have recognized that he was being played for a chump back when that might have savded some lives. Instead what we have is something that a lot of white voters who are inclined to view Obama nervously because of his race may see as something approaching validation of their worst fears. I'm right there with Lyle Lovett on this one. Thanks for nothing, General Powell. Again.
