POLITICS: Ideas, Anyone?

Speaking of TAP's political content, this analysis of Cynthia McKinney's loss is typical TAP stuff -- lots of innuendo and a reluctant conclusion that maybe things are as they seem after all -- but what dismays me is the tendency, in discussions of politics in the African-American community (I don't know if this is driven by the media, the grass roots, or just the people disaffected enough to talk to the papers) to look solely at who a candidate's friends are and a few bellwether issues, and not have any kind of debate about ideas and their consequences.
