I can see now that it wil be tough to keep the Blue Skunk apolitical this year. I thought this observation by Texas library professor Mary Ann Bell on her Wanderings blog was rich:
...it occurred to me that the MAC vs PC preference discussion is somewhat analogous to today's political conundrum. Is it just me or does Obama seem like a Mac and Hillary more like a PC? Playing around with this idea I came up with several reasons:
* Very nicely packaged
* Engaging and appealing
* Easy to like
* Long history of getting things done
McCain? There my analogy breaks down. I am not sure what to compare him to!
McCain? A 386 PC running Windows 95?
Oh, welcome back from the Dark Side, Mary Ann!
