Power, by Dennis O’Neil

Dennis O'Neil

Dennis O'Neil was born in 1939, the same year that Batman first appeared in Detective Comics. It was thus perhaps fated that he would be so closely associated with the character, writing and editing the Dark Knight for more than 30 years. He's been an editor at Marvel and DC Comics. In addition to Batman, he's worked on Spider-Man, Daredevil, Iron Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, the Question, The Shadow and more. O'Neil has won every major award in the industry. His prose novels have been New York Times bestsellers. Denny lives in Rockland County with his wife, Marifran.

    You are right. Lethem's a good writer. "Meanwhile, pigs break into the lipstick store, and we go hollering down the street after them, relieving ourselves of another hour or day or week of clear thought."

    It's akin to former Vice President Gore in the 2000 Debates. I keep sighing, and looking towards my fellow man in hopes he will meet my gaze… both of us silently agreeing that what stands before us is bafoonery.

    See, for me, the most attractive thing originally about Obama was not the change mantra, but instead his appeal to the purple: the idea that the reds and the blues need to come together and figure this stuff out, including the Wall Street mess, health care, etc. etc. But we get his analysis that the latest financial panics are because McCain was for de-regulation, instead of precisely which regulations should be re-instated or which new regulations should be imposed in the first 100 days of an Obama administration. And then his supporters get with the hysterical rhetoric such as Palin "apparently believes the First Amendment has no more importance than the slip of paper in a fortune cookie" (hyperbole, much?) Don't get me wrong– I'm equally appalled at the substance of McCain's campaign to date.Man, I was hoping this would be the first election we could finally get past re-fighting the Vietnam War and the decades-long grudges some folks have been holding. But it looks to not be the case.

    I wonder what the sample was on that poll.I was recently chatting with some acquaintances and the talk suddenly shifted to the election. I forgot for a moment which crowd I was with and made the mistake of mentioning that I was going to vote for Obama. After the outburst of racist, Limbaughvian bullshit they had all accepted as gospel without question, it came out that they thought Palin was a great choice because "she's hot" and "she hunts and she cleans her own kills!"Proving that, at least for that bunch, McCain's choice had had exactly the desired effect.I really hope there aren't enough like-minded voters to swing this election that way.
