Resistance is Futile!

Sez Booman, it's really not that bad once you learn to submit:

Barack Obama knew better than to rely on the existing infrastructure, created by the blogosphere, to fight back against the Bush administration and the media. We are too stridently partisan to be messengers of a new kind of politics. He had to step around the gatekeepers of the blogosphere, much to their chagrin. Barack Obama's greatest accomplishment is the organization that he created. He used our tools and his own message. And he won. He could not have won any other way. And that makes him both our greatest representative, and someone who doesn't really need us at all. All of you should go join up on his website and meet your neighbors that are supporting him, and get organized. For presidential stuff, there is no reason to use the blogosphere at all. Use Obama's own tools.

Dear God. I've held back on the Obama cult accusations for a while now; many of my friends and family support him. But Booman... wtf? I don't even know where to begin with this. It is the Borg. No, wait, it's the Heaven's Gate cultists leaving behind their earthly bodies to merge with the higher consciousness.

Actually, I've got it! It's like in the Matrix, where the humans created the machines and then after they fought it out the machines kept the humans alive as tiny generators, feeding them the liquified remains of their brethren.

Not because they had to. Not because we even deserved it, as strident and partisan as we were. But because they're merciful!

So, come on, everyone. Leave your individual thoughts behind. Take the blue pill and relax. Ignorance is bliss!

Hating Obama as a carrier for right wing ideology

The problem with the DLC
Submitted by lambert on Sat, 2008-05-03 21:45.

Is that it’s an institution that the Obama Movement doesn’t control. Period. That’s all it is. That’s why Kos has a problem with it too.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer crowd of Bush enablers. Although silly Forbes still thinks the DLC are Democrats:

Oh Archie!

Thread: 

I was reading one too many references to "Archie Bunkers" when it occurred to me that Archie is getting a bad rap.

Yeah, Archie was a bigot in 1971 when "All in the Family" went on the air, but he changed over the years.

Another look at "Destiny's Child"

Last year Rolling Stone magazine published an article about Barack Obama called "Destiny's Child" by Ben Wallace-Wells. The story deserves a second look, because at the time Obama was a virtual unknown to most of the public.

The piece begins with Obama's arrival in Washington D.C., then shifts to his meteoric rise in the Democratic party: Read more about Another look at "Destiny's Child"

Kos on Obama on Fox News Sunday

Thread: 

Kos put up a diary today, http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/4/28/..., where he laments about his candidate's performance on Fox News Sunday.

Sorry Kos, you can only go to the primaries with the Obama you have, rather than the one you wished you had. Read more about Kos on Obama on Fox News Sunday

Gangbangers for Obama (a parody)

"By the way, when I get collect calls from prison and the like (I get wa-a-ay too many for the health of my phone bill), lately I always ask the guys who of the three candidates they prefer. Most (but not all), say Barack Obama."

"Journalist" and professional Obama shill, Celeste Fremon, writing in the comments section (#77) on her blog.

I mean this story pretty much writes itself...

skdadl at pogge reminds us that certain parties regularly get away with spinning their regular wrongitude into a larger, more noble narrative of rightness.  And that those who were right never get the credit for it. Read more about Got inner turmoil?
