Tactical move to keep Democrats on the defensive here? Or a cheap way to purchase some “moderate” cred with centrists ahead of 2012?
This should play super well with the grassroots Obama-haters he needs in the primaries.
There will be an outcry from those on the right who will say that Obama’s nomination, made two weeks into his Presidency, is impossible to justify but I think such an outcry will sound like right-wing whining. The better response is simply to allow those on the left to explain what he did in his first two weeks as President that merited such recognition.
Mellow out, champ. So impossible to justify is today’s news that it’s managed to accomplish something that only the Iranian uprising in June had achieved thus far this year — it’s brought the blogosphere together. (Except for a certain “true conservative” Obama mega-shill, natch.) In fact, it’s even better that. So impossible to justify is a Nobel for The One that, at this very moment, photoshops mocking his lack of qualifications are viewable at … Time magazine. Yeah. Not Fark or Something Awful, but America’s most famous newsweekly. Even they want in on this action. See now why I think this “award” is such a headache for him?
Exit question: When will the inevitable congratulatory communique from Sarahcuda drop on Facebook? I’m guessing around 11-ish tonight.
