A Completely Asinine Reason to Like Obama

I talked about John McCain's MySpace page a few weeks ago, and today I happened upon Barack Obama's Facebook page. I came across something that makes me like the guy even more. Under his favorite music, he lists Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, and Bach (the cello suites).

I know, I know-- these are safe choices that reflect the incredibly canonical nature of jazz, rock, and classical music. But cut me some slack- after almost eight years of a president who would pronounce Johann Sebastian's last name the same as a certain Steelers back-up quarterback, this makes my universe a slightly happier place.

Can you imagine Coltrane on McCain's Victrola?
