Powell endorsement

Just got this twitter update from the campaign:

BarackObama: I am beyond honored.  I am deeply humbled to have the support of Gen. Colin Powell.  Learn more at http://tinyurl.com/6fovqf

This is huge for Obama.  Powell is not only a conservative but he is widely regarded as an untouchable American hero.  This is someone who knowingly staked his career on a bullshit UN testimony, that brought us into Iraq, and came out unscathed.  While I think his heroism is questionable, it is going to give the campaign a significant boost.

(this message brought to you from my blackberry while in the long john silvers drive-through)
