There’s nothing more creepy than a political campaign that doesn’t know that it’s dead. That’s what’s happened to the Rocky Anderson for President campaign, though. He’s crossed over to the shadowy terrain of corporate politics, but he still thinks that he’s the same as he ever was. Rocky Anderson is like a zombie, shuffling and moaning, and trying to go through the motions, as if his campaign still has life in it, while everyone on the outside can see that it’s all over now.
Rocky Anderson’s supporters have said that it’s a terrible betrayal and a symptom of corruption when Barack Obama allows his campaign to use corporate money to get ahead. Now that Rocky Anderson is doing it, will his fans say that it’s okay?
What Rocky Anderson is willing to say, while Obama and the Republicans strike poses of conspicuous Christianity, is that a presidential candidate ought to be judged according to deeds, rather than religious creeds.
In an economy with high unemployment, Barack Obama’s support for religious discrimination in hiring is particularly cruel. Rocky Anderson, the Justice Party presidential candidate, supports the separation of church and state that Obama so casually casts off.
