Not that I ever believed a word out of his pretty little mouth, but Barack Obama has gotten on my last long-suffering, its-fun-to-watch-them-implode nerve. There is a reason why he is doing so well against Hillary's machine: he's as cynical, jaded, ruthless and callous as the Clintons.
That people even attribute any doe-eyed optimism to the hope-change man baffles me. Obama just strikes me as hard and smooth--like the head of a hammer.
So rather than blab endlessly about this Chicago phenom, I'll just link to what other, smarter people are saying and everyone is saying something. Oh! And that's something else that bugs me. Do you notice how the whole Reverend Wright blab-fest keeps one name on everyone's lips? Obama. Obama. Obama. It's like musack to Obama's ears. It doesn't matter that what's being said is bad--it just freaking great that everyone is talking about him. Makes me wonder if he'll trump up a love child or past crack buddy just to keep his name front and center.
Ace's opinion is morphing. He smells conspiracy.
The Anchoress smells the Clintons. And did you know that Hillary is going to have to testify in a fraud case? Sigh. Obama and Clinton are the best the Dems can do.
Dan Collins is writing teh ghey love sonnets to Barack. It's really quite sweet.
Rachel has the best headline. Duh! "Obama snaps his fingers and says,"Oh no you didn't!" Oh yes, she did.
John Hawkins notes that the Kos Kidz are kalling Kobama (ok, that just got old) an Uncle Tom. Maybe I'm not so sick of Obama. This is fun!
Jim Hoft reports that Obama has turned to another suspicious character for love and wisdom. It all feels so Oprah. But hey, the new guy is white. Is Obama building his white cred, now?
Michelle Malkin on jive talkin'. Money quote, "It’s not Wright who has changed his loony tune." I just thought it was time for some musical entertainment.
Yes, Beth, Obama does think we're that stupid. He has from the beginning, though. And damn, if he hasn't been right so far.
Ann Althouse reads the whole thing this way:
Surely, we'll have a movie someday that will flesh all this out. Jeremiah and Barack. In my screenplay, Jeremiah the main character. He's the one with the fire and the complex problems and emotions, the jealousy that turns him to villainous betrayal.I don't know. How betrayed can you feel when your bud's stock in trade is vile venom? It seems to me to display an ignorance of human nature.
Enough for now. Update later.
