Alex Cockburn says not to vote for Obama

The Southern Avenger has it here.

In substantive terms Obama’s run has been the negation of almost every decent progressive principle, a negation achieved with scarcely a bleat of protest from the progressives seeking to hold him to account.

So no, this is not an exciting or liberating moment in America’s politics such as was possible after the Bush years. If you want a memento of what could be exciting, I suggest you go to the website of the Nader-Gonzalez campaign and read its platform, particularly on popular participation and initiative. Or read the portions of Libertarian Bob Barr’s platform on foreign policy and constitutional rights.”

Alexander Cockburn is one of the craziest left-wing s.o.b’s around; his exhortation not to vote for Barry Obama should not be dismissed easily.
