Ellis’ post on Obamania:
I imagine the Republican machine isn’t completely happy today. They have the ”experience” card, but they really wanted Hillary Clinton. They’ve been waiting for Hillary Clinton. They know how to run against her. Some of them have been licking their lips in anticipation of the most sickening public political evisceration in decades. Remember when Hillary declared she and Bill were under siege by a massive right-wing conspiracy? A UK newspaper did some digging, and found it. Interviewed them and everything. And those people didn’t suddenly go out and get hobbies. Obama is a different animal, and harder to run against in many ways.
The entire post is worth reading (then again, I’m also a fan of his work in comics and fiction, so I’m biased). In the spirit of full disclosure, I need to point out that Warren Ellis scares the piss out of me. I half expect him to be able to explode people he doesn’t like with the power of his mind.
