Striving to be less reliable than ever

By Al Schumann on Monday March 9, 2009 06:33 PM

[Obama] said he did not find blogs to be reliable, citing the economy as one example. “Part of the reason we don’t spend a lot of time looking at blogs,” he said, “is because if you haven’t looked at it very carefully, then you may be under the impression that somehow there’s a clean answer one way or another — well, you just nationalize all the banks, or you just leave them alone and they’ll be fine.”

Via Joe Weisenthal

If he's looking for ways to reinforce those false dichotomies, I'd think turning to the court intellectual wannabes is his best bet. He's made their job difficult, but it's not impossible. There are bound to be a few that are "reliable". I also think he protests too much. Narcissism and solipsism know no satiety. A million cheerleading blogs wouldn't be enough. Fortunately, there's a clean answer: resign. He should hand this off to Joe Biden (bear with me). In three months, his supporters would be begging him to come back.

President Biden? Vice-President Hillary?!

P'wahh ha ha ha ha ha ha ha hahhhh.

Oh, yeah. Bring it on.

I've already so fucking had it with Obama's pomposity, his smarmy feigned seriousness, his vacuous speeches, his shit-doesn't-stink attitude.

Vice-President Hillary.
D'ahhh ha ha hah hah haaahhhh.

(oh, damn; I've wet 'em again.)

Al Schumann:

I hadn't thought the succession through to the vice presidency. But it's certain Biden has, even if he hasn't thought of anything else, aside from his role as an insurance policy.

Actually, I just thought...if the Secretary of Snake...uh, State succeeds to VP, then, iirc, the Speaker Of The House is bumped up to Secretary of Snake, right?

In that case...Secretary Pelosi??

D'ahhhh ha ha hahahahahahahahhhh... d'oh, goddammit, I've wet 'em again.

Al Schumann:

I can't bring myself to feel sorry for the bloggers he's dissing.

The techno-centrists are against him by virtue of not being demonstrably for him. But they're not sympathetic people. They're simply horrified by the perceived threat to the status quo.

The sharper criticism he gets from the Sweden-hungry liberals is perjured criticism. They knew exactly what they were getting when they voted for him: Mitt Romney, without the psychotic gleam in his eye.

The 19th century nostalgia bloggers are eager for the cleansing effects of watered stock, bogus bonds and regular institutional collapses. They already have them. I'm not sure why they're complaining. They've "won".

But none of them are so awful that they deserve Secretary Pelosi. That's just cruel.
