Conservatives Gone Mad
 Why can't they attack without racism?


Can anyone deny that the most trenchant and effective criticism of Obama today comes not from the right 
but from the left? Rachel Maddow’s grilling of administration economic officials. Keith Olbermann’s hectoring 
of Democratic leaders on the public option. Glenn Greenwald’s criticisms of Elena Kagan. Ezra Klein and 
Jonathan Cohn’s keepin’-them-honest perspectives on health care. The civil libertarian left on detainees and Gitmo. 
The Huffington Post on derivatives.
I want to find Republicans to take seriously, but it is hard. Not because they don’t exist - serious Republicans 
- but because, as others seem to recognize, they are marginalized, even self-marginalizing, and the base itself seems 
to have developed a notion that bromides are equivalent to policy-thinking, and that therapy is a substitute for thinking.
It is absolutely a condition of the age of the triumph of conservative personality politics, where entertainers shouting 
slogans are taken seriously as political actors, and where the incentive structures exist to stomp on dissent and nuance, 
causing experimental voices to retrench and allowing a lot of people to pretend that the world around them is not changing. 
The obsession with ACORN, Climategate, death panels, the militarization of rhetoric, Saul Alinsky, Chicago-style politics, 
that Taxpayers will fund the bailout of banks -- these aren't meaningful or interesting or even relevant things to focus on. 
(The banks will fund their own bailouts.)"

Before the year is out, Obama is going to appeal to The Left to get out and vote in November.
For the first time in his presindency, he's going to remember that he needs to keep his base happy.

Getting elected took brains and guts - where are those brains and guts now?
Why does he keep putting the wishes of the GOP above ours?
