Obama Is Winning, Which Means Bad News For Obama

No, really, even the liberal New Republic says so:

Reporters are grumbling more and more that the campaign is acting like the Prom Queen. They gripe that it is “arrogant” and “control[ling],” and the campaign’s own belief that Obama is poised to make history isn’t endearing, either. The press certainly helped Obama get so far so fast; the question is, how far can he get if his campaign alienates them?

Fuck me blind, I thought it would take at least until Obama was actually elected for all the shit that was okay for Bush to become magically out of bounds. Looks like TNR is getting a jump on things.

  1. Erm, the New Republic? Liberal?
    I do remember telling my Contracts professor back in the 80s that TNR was only liberal in that it called for an end to that Other War, you know, the one that dominated my childhood and teenage years. Otherwise, not liberal at all.
    (Of course, I was all but a small-c communist when I started law school.)

  3. “Controlling”?? “Arrogant”?? They lapped it up for seven years from GWB, and suddenly they’ve discovered that they don’t like to be controlled? Hell of a time to figure that out, you assholes!

  4. “the media” thinks obama is acting like a “prom queen” (hilarious choice of words, “queen” rather than “king”) because they’re not being treated like BFFs?
    what do they think this is, high school?
    oh shit, i guess they do.
