I’m getting more and more optimistic about the upcoming Obama administration. Why? Because with each passing day, the fringe left is growing increasingly disenchanted with Barack. Maybe there’s “hope” after all.
The DailyKos/MoveOn.org/DemocraticUnderground/PDA types actually thought they were going to be issued their own parking spot at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, invited to spend inauguration night in the Lincoln bedroom, get nightly rubdowns from Dennis Kucinich and be given Vladimir Putin’s personal cell phone number. In other words, they were every bit as gullible as the Democrat leadership knew they would be.
Politically, I disagree with Obama on almost everything, but the man’s no fool, and he knows that he can’t tie his presidential legacy to a bunch of half-baked kookleberry Chomskymuffins.
About a month ago I wrote a column saying that the left would become wildly upset after they ran to the roadside the day after Obama’s inauguration and were shocked to discover that their mailboxes didn’t contain any free money, Xanax gift cards or the secret to eternal life, but I was way wrong — the disenchantment started much earlier than January 21.
Stand back and watch the jilted lovers light up the stove and boil Obama’s “change” bunny.
