remember a bit over a year ago when I said how much I was looking forward to being disappointed in obama?

well, mission accomplished.

I had a minor epiphany on Thursday though, which was that as annoyed as I am with his...well...basically being the centrist corporate stooge that I've thought he was from the get-go, if we were dealing with president mccain right now instead of president obama, the current debate in the senate wouldn't be about health care - it would be about whether to annex peru. so, like, things could be worse. at least the fights were having are the fights we should be having - even if they aren't going terribly well.

I realize that Centrist Corporate Stooge vs. Insane Corporate Stooge is a false binary and that there is a limitless range of other options, some of the better of which involve retraining oligarchs to be responsible members of society.

but the best rationale I could ever come up with for obama was "he'll get us all killed a little slower than the other guy".

and that seems to be working out just fine.
