First time as farce, second time not funny at all

I'm surprised you aren't riffing on Barack Obombirana declaring his love for Ronald Reagan. I feel another cartoon coming on...something about a black dude with a big, slick, uniformly Superman-colored pompadour.


"Obama, in his interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal's editorial board, made the case that his movement is as much about a national moment as about him as a "singular" individual, and he drew a rather odd analogy for a Democrat: Ronald Reagan.

'Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not, and a way that Bill Clinton did not,' he said, describing Reagan as appealing to a sentiment that, 'We want clarity, we want optimism, we want a return to that sense of dynamism and entrepreneurship that had been missing.'"

Yeah, he changed the trajectory, alright -- from an Apollo 11 trajectory to a Challenger trajectory.
"Entrepreneurship" is particularly good. This is the Great Black Hope?

Hillary, like George Washington Plunkitt, seen her opportunities and took 'em, to raise the pulse rate of the sclerotic Party faithful. It's primary season, after all. Doesn't Barack know enough to save that stuff for the general election?

[from The Note]

Clinton is attacking Obama for his comment that "the Republicans were the party of ideas for a pretty long chunk of time there." Said Clinton on Friday: "That's not the way I remember the last ten to fifteen years. I don't think it's a better idea to privatize social security. I don't think it's a better idea to try to eliminate the minimum wage."

Weird that Hillary would say that. Her hubby Bill was all set to privatize Social Security, and the eruption of Monicagate put that little plan to rest.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
