51 weeks ago, I wrote this, in a post titled "Pick Up That Knife, Barack!":
If and when Barack Obama wins the Democratic nomination, it will be, ironically, the death of hope for me.
Once again, it's not so much that he's a bad guy or all that different from Hillary Clinton on policy.
It's that his vaunted campaign is everything I would have hoped the (potentially) winning 2008 campaign wouldn't be: Truthy and Retrograde.Read below the fold...
One Obama press person recently asked a mutual acquaintance, "Why does John Judis hate us?"
Exactly, but exactly, like the comment threads on The Obama 527 Formerly Known As Daily Kos, where the only possible reason for not supporting Obama was hate. Well, that, and racism.

[UPDATE It only just occurred to me that being labeled a stalker by David Sirota -- and all because I took umbrage at being told to "slither back to my rathole," with the rest of the Clintonites -- has to be worth some kibble -- especially during the heating season in Zone 5b. You may feed the hamsters at right. Send David Sirota a message about his meta! Haw. Thanks for the hits, Dave. --lambert]
