CMC Freshman Matt Kelsey in USA TODAY

Obama: Defending Truth, Justice, and the Amerikkkan Way

Our friend, Matt Kelsey CMC'11 has made it into USA Today today talking about Barack Obama, his candidate for the 2008 election.

Matt Kelsey, 19, is one of the new donors. He gave $25, in $5 and $10 increments, to Obama while he was attending high school last year in Crawfordsville, Ind. He spent another $25 to attend an Obama rally.

Now a freshman at Claremont McKenna College near Los Angeles, Kelsey spent eight days of his winter break in Nevada, calling voters and going door-to-door for Obama in advance of the state's caucuses Jan. 19.

Kelsey regrets that he won't be able to vote in Indiana's hotly contested primary Tuesday. He already voted in California.

"I just assumed everything would be over once it got to my state," he said.

Sorry Matt, but everything will be over when John McCain is sworn in.

Matt should probably sit out the campaigning, anyways. Hillary won Nevada and California.

Donating money to the Obama campaign is like paying a cover charge to get into a casino.

I see that this post has substance. Filled with substance! I also see that McCain will be our next president, assuming he doesn't die by then or go completely senile in his rants about Iran harboring Al-qaeda.

Mm, yes, great idea, sit out campaigning simply because a candidate wins that state? Doesn't sound like a very good idea to me...after all, isn't political activism a good thing?

Charles Johnson said...


Of course I wouldn't say sit out campaigning. I was merely suggesting that Matt had bad luck.

Take care,

Haha, well that he did.
