The Obama tax calculator. Frankly, this is what I like least, and find most cynical, about the Obama candidacy: “vote for me, and I’ll give you money.” This sort of thing exposes the weakness in the very idea of a popular democracy, and I wish that a candidate with Obama’s rational appeal (not to mention with Obama’s near-lock on winning) would resist engaging in that kind of pandering.
