*sigh* The eternal optimist.

So far the left seems enchanted with his poetry and desperate to get rid of Bush, altho a few are apparently catching on. If he keeps this up, there might be a coterie (how substantial I can't guess) willing to hit him with a wet noodle when he misbehaves but otoh, nobody wants McCain. If there's going to be a rebellion it will be after the election.

The problem with that is, if Barack keeps moving toward McCain, there will be little reason to vote for him by November and one big reason not to:

Why vote for a black Bush when you can have a white one?

I'm listening to Steny Hoyer wax rhapsodic about how great it was to work with Roy Blunt on the gutting of FISA. He's practically in tears, the fucker. I have to be hopeful that the Senate will fix/stop this b/c it's too painful to believe that they won't.

They won't. They want a Dem pres to have as much power as Bush had, tho based on past performance I have no idea why since they won't use it.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
