Power to The People

A comment left on my FISA-Obama post just a few days ago:

You mean Barack Obama is a mortal human? No Way! Get outta town! … These people who were surprised by his FISA support have not done their research. He confirmed John Negroponte and Condoleeza Rice for their respective roles in the bush administration. He voted for the USA patriot act, too. Guess What? He would still make a better president than McSame.

Which, while funny and true, goes only partway there. Let me take you down (the Beatles said that) … the rest of the way.

Keith Olberman’s recent memo to Barack—this whole thing is so under my skin. And you know what that means. Yes … someone is deceiving themselves. Someone is telling less than the truth—many someones. Not that I’m suggesting they’ve got a clue. Continue reading “Power to The People”

Sweetest Things Turn Sourest

Title via Glenn Greenwald, surprise. Yes, I think he’s going a bit overboard about Obama’s present actions as Senator … which were to be expected, and if you didn’t expect them, if you didn’t see Obama as a quintessentially political creature, you either haven’t been paying attention or joined MoveOn at too early an age.

… note to the rest of America — we may not be as sexy as Hollywood or Wall Street, but you know what? We’ve got a shitload of money, and we know how to organize. We’re a powerful bunch of khaki-wearing, gay-marriage-supporting, arugula-eating, Mac-using elitist nerds out here. To all of you racist homophobic non-Californian dumb fucks who find that annoying? Tough shit. We outsmarted you. We out-spent you. And now for the next eight years we’re going to be running this country. We’re going to give equal rights to gay people, fund stem-cell research, teach evolution, take down the fence on the Mexican border, and make sure abortion stays safe and legal. We’re going to pull out of Iraq, shut down Gitmo, and stop torturing people. And yeah. A black dude with a Muslim-sounding name and degrees from Columbia and Harvard is going to be in charge. So sit back down, strap yourself in, and shut the fuck up, crackers.

Oh heed these words. He speaks for, well, me. For one.

And don’t be too damn quick to assume he doesn’t also speak for you.

Obama’s going to run on ending the war, and if you don’t think that’s going to walk all over McComa …
