Apollo 4 on column of fire

Chronicling the buffoonery

BuzzFlash’s attitude is indecent:

"A fired-up Barack Obama ditched his TelePrompter to rally House Democrats and rip Republican opponents of his recovery package Thursday night – at one point openly mocking the GOP for failing to follow through on promises of bipartisanship." Go, Barack, Go!

Barack Obama, of course, has to do what he has to do, and obviously I am a fan of humor and mockery. That’s not the problem; it’s the ‘Go, Barack, go!’ that bugs me. That’s what ballparks are for.

It is unsettling that my fellow Democratic-leaning citizens are having trouble adapting to the notion of debate over public policy. The slightest resistance from Republicans and my prominent comrades panic, as if they were unfamiliar with how this so-called democratic republic is supposed to operate.

Moreover, they underrate Barack Obama, thinking he just got a harsh lesson in partisanship—this is like complaining that a Beethoven symphony had a crescendo in it, rather than starting at top volume.
