International voting begins

This could be interesting.  The (British) Economist magazine is asking its readers to vote in the American presidential election (no, this is not real balloting—and ACORN is nowhere to be found).  So far readers are solid for Obama with most of Obama’s votes coming from India and China.  McCain is strong in Cuba and Iraq.

Of course,  getting the international vote only reinforces the conservative caricature of Obama as an elitist “world citizen” and “European-style socialist”.  But really, the Economist has been promoting capitalism, globalization, and free trade for 150 years.  You’d think that’s the kind of “internationalism” conservatives would favor.

Nope.  I just checked the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal.  Obama is still a socialist.
