What else could they mean by propagating Maddow's "best administration since FDR" meme?

... and a thousand of the wise can't pull it out.

Well, at least she's audacious.

Of course, best since FDR doesn't mean as good as FDR. So there's that.

... better than Truman, Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, and Clinton. Humble as one may consider those bars, it's hard to swallow that he's surpassed them. Well, he hasn't nuked any cities yet, so he's got that going for him.

Never, ever underestimate the audacity of dopes.

That could be, like, the title of a book! I bet it would sell a lot of copies!

Note how I've mastered the whole lack-of-agency thing. "It would sell", giggles...

That would be known as an "oversell."

non-stop infomercial is, "But WAIT! There's more!!!"

Yes, we know, and that's what we're afraid of.

I'm just so sick of the new politics of "well, since we can't actually DO any of the things we say we need to, we'll just talk about them as if we did."

It's all about how it looks, and not about how it is.

Here's a question: who in their right mind is still giving money to political parties? I mean, are there still people who think the party is actually planning to deliver on anything?

Dems might as well send out mailings that, when opened, pop-out a 3-D paper gun that sends out a little "bang" that says, "give us all your money;" that might be some real truth in advertising, eh?

in all this? i searched the link and didn't see her name anywhere. i'm not at all surprised that the DLC is trying to compare O to FDR, but when did she say that? you know i don't watch TV or read most TV related posts, but i thought that was a stretch even for her, given what i've read about her. when did she say it?
