Government is simply the word for those things we choose to do badly together.
My grand theory is that virtually everything liberals hate about Bush as a politician can be applied to Barack Obama.Ears they don't like? CheckProne to verbal gaffes (but good with speeches)? CheckIdealogical? CheckChristian? Well..."check"Of course, Obama's no cowboy and he's not like Bush in that he rewards loyalty to a fault, but it'll be interesting to see how they react. Probably along the lines of "Why are you being so hard on Obama? We weren't hard on Bush at all!" If Obama wins, we'll wind up with "Obama Derangement Syndrome," "Countdown Till Obama Leaves Office" calendars, and a gaffe-of-the-day feature at Weekly Standard or National Review.
I've noted for the past eight years that Democratic Underground sounds, in many ways, just like Free Republic did in the '90s.
Maybe there's room for an eighth? One of Obama's $50K campaign finance bundlers is Jodie Evans, co-founder of Code Pink.
