    Yes, folks, they're not even in office yet and they are pulling each other to the bottom of the barrel.

    In one barrel we have Harry Reid ("I will not seat anyone named by the Governor") vs. Rod "fuck 'em all" Blogojevich.

    In another barrel we have Howard "the doctor is in" Dean who threw a hissy fit and predicted Obama would be cooked in six months and would come crawling back to him for help.

    It's very interesting that a holy cow like Dean has been pushed well to the outer.

    Is it me, or does anyone find it odd that a "new guy" who only has 74 posts on a Large Penis site, whom only joined our beloved forum about a month ago is already the OP of nearly 19 anti-Obama, anti-Democrat, anti-Liberal thread topics?

    Ummmmmm... yeah. I think we all know what that smells like, people. But please, carry on "newbie". :rolleyes:

    I don't find it odd, I find it familiar.

    I"ll be glad when all of the OP's who posts these type of threads go ahead and tell the truth about what is really motivating their focus on Obama.

    VinylBoy --

    The problem with threads like these isn't that it's by a "new guy" or that it's "anti-Obama". The problem is - and let's be honest - that threads like these are stupid. They cheapen discourse.

    I clicked onto that Politico link. Politico columnists have to come up with a story to fill space. Jonathan Martin writes "Obama Snubs Dean", which is pretty much a slight, filler non-story, then yoyos like the OP make an entire thread out of it.

    You'll notice that Obama has been implicated in none of these many pre-inag mini-"scandals" (like Blagojevich). He has the highest approval rating of any president-elect ever (CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, 82%). There was a lot of real, authentic political drama throughout 2008, by virtue of the primaries, the conventions, the election, but threads like these (and Martin's column) just whip up fake silly drama.
