If you weren't panicking, you wouldn't be in the netroots.That's all anyone in the Sports Talk Left does anymore anyway, panic and kcik around their own elected officials.
Was the Cook diary anothe rUpstate Kent Classic and speaking of whom, didn't Upstate Kent go under the name of "Steve" and constantly call the local sports talk show in Peoria, IL during the 1980s predicting gloom and doom for the Bradley University men's basketball team?
Beacase that's the mentality of the Blog Birchers. They still haven't gotten that pony, so Obama can't lead. The Democratic leadership isn't trying to out-Flying Monkey the Flying Monkeys. so they're wimps.
I'm not a liberal Democrat (although I wonder at times if that's where the country is headed) and in a way I'm glad beacause with freinds like the .com Left, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, ei al don't need enemies.
I would be nice if the MSM did start calling the RW on this stuff, but I'm not holding my breath. And I don't expect the voting public to register any displeasure on National Head-Up-Your-Butt, er, Election Day, either.
I think you have a good point there. I remeber seeing a flash animation right after the election re energy policy that depicted obama as a superhero and the activist base as his sidekick, fighthing their opponents together.
If this were a superhero comic, Obama would be Batman and the liberal blogoshere would be Robin--if you can picture Robin as the Joker's silent partner.
