With friends like these....

La Huffington, Inc., reports:

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman [says] Barack Obama's actions since winning the presidency have been "just about perfect."

"Everything that President-elect Obama has done since election night has been just about perfect, both in terms of a tone and also in terms of the strength of the names that have either been announced or are being discussed to fill his administration," Lieberman said during a visit to Hartford.

... Lieberman said he believes the rift between himself and the party stemmed mainly from his support of President Bush's policy in Iraq and will close as that becomes less of an issue.

"It appears to me that the war in Iraq is coming to a successful -- I don't want to say conclusion yet, but it's moving in a way that it will not be a divisive issue either in the Democratic Party or between Democrats and Republicans in the time ahead," Lieberman said. "And therefore, I think we'll return to more normal times, which I welcome."

Joe's no fool. He loves the Iraq war like his firstborn son. When he says that the war "won't be a divisive issue," you can take that to the bank.

"Normal times" indeed -- the Democrats are only anti-war when they're in opposition.

If then.

yep, perfect

i have to say i watched that roundtable discussion on obama's economic advisors on democracy now! yesterday with some bit of schadenfreude.


By the way, anyone catch that Tim Wise piece in alternet the other day. hilarious!


"...there are millions of people .. who are mobilized and active, ... Odds are...few of them will actually land jobs with( the obama administration). So that leaves activist formations, community groups and grass-roots struggles. That leaves, in short, us."

us being the auto-embroiled left clump

but ...read on

"Just as young people inspired by the center-right JFK candidacy in 1960 ultimately moved well beyond him on their way to the left and made up many of the most committed and effective activists of the 60s and early 70s, so too can such growth occur now among the Obama faithful. But not if we write them off."

we lefticles
can make em grow or keep em
stunted and stymied
its up to us

lets go spray em with
green lib-lean-leftward's
open handed palms up .. miracle grow
morph magic
and certainly we ought not
trot over
lift our left leg
and pee burning red urine
down their pant leg

sounds good and refusional to me

leff-tationed saints
and callow goo goo strangers
in solemn compact

like a mayflower type gig man

get it eh what ?

sail on sail on

Clio's promiseland for liberatory struggle awaits us...

a howling wilderness on a hill

Few things amuse quite like a professional barbituate vendor who scolds the people he force-feeds for dozing off before the culmination of the Big Spectacle.

Sorry, Tim. I'm sick being force-fed the sleep potions by you and your little friends. I'll be in my underground bunker drinking black coffee and reading comic books should you ever deign to have an original thought and share it with a poor little benighted Lefty savage such as myself. Leave a note in the mailbox. Oh, and go fuck youtself.

"at their repetitively irrelevant antiwar demonstrations"

Help me out, gang...What repeated anti-war rallies? For some reason, I was under the impression that the rallies had ceased altogether since the appointer of Rahm Emanuel started his marketing operations. Have I fallen asleep for 18 months again?

Or does the "courageous," self-flattering Tim Wise perhaps have his head up his own repetitive, irrelevant ass?

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.
