Colin Powell's Words

Colin Powell the former member of the Bush Administration baking soda as anthrax the good soldier etc., etc.... Today, Powell did what might be considered a little image repair.

Yes, Powell endorsed Obama today. Big news, of course, and he hit on a little something that I haven't heard much about on that liberal mainstream media. Here are the money words:
I'm also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said such things as, "Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim."

Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim; he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian.

But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America.

Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president?

Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, "He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists." This is not the way we should be doing it in America.
He went on to talk about a Muslim-American soldier who died in Iraq.

It was a proper shaming of the McCain campaign and the Republican Party from an elder statesman (who at 71 is still younger than McCain!).

Oh, and he also had some nice things to say about the junior Senator from Illinois.
