This post made me snort. My reply:
The only problem with your idea is that it's fucking stupid.
Obama is a Chicago machine politician, ruthless, unprincipled and amoral, who happens to have the talent of reading off a teleprompter well. That doesn't make him a good politician.
And the Rudd thing actually just undermines your whole argument: "look, a politician doing something that any normal human being would do anyway." This deserves so much praise that you actually want to build a fucking website around it?
There is no such thing as a good politician: they are all in it for the gain or the self-aggrandizement, or worse, to make us all live how they think the little people should live.
OK, so there is such a thing as a good politician -- a dead one. But that's not something that deserves a website, is it?
