Like some yoga exercises that look ridiculous but make you feel better, the little game of "The First Thing Obama Needs to do" seems to serve some purpose for some people, but what could it be?
This was an off the cuff comment I tried to submit at Firedoglake, but they censored it, so I developed it a little bit more and have made it a diary, both here and over at the Seminal
Is it the kind of idle fantasizing people do after buying a lottery ticket . . . "the First Thing I would do with $78 million is..." Read more about The First Thing Obama Needs to do is . . . Release the Sparkle Ponies!
What will Democrats run on in 2010 and 2012? They can't credibly run on their record, so they will have to run on how eeeevil and scaaaary the Republicans are.
Coincidentally, a favorite subject of (D) captured 'progressive' sites like FDL, where Blue Texan went with "New Harris Poll Finds Nearly One Fourth of Republicans Believe Obama May Be the Antichrist" Read more about Break the last arrows in their quiver
[I won't quote a private email discussion, but I'll summarize it by saying that the poster made a suicide request by stating that "any stick to beat a dog"-style argumentation is justified. That's a rule 5 violation, for which the penalty is banning. -- lambert]

Wow, I better watch my fingers when I post here. I make a one letter typo and I get my face ripped off. I really shouldn't have posted here to begin with, but I have a very close friend who is a poster here and I do get a kick out of reading his & others posts. I saw that QOTD and got annoyed.

Oh wait, here's another reason I'm a dumb ass. What's the food box for? It seems incomplete somehow. Don't get me wrong. I'm not bitching. I just don't know how to use it. Enlighten me. Read more about Jus Checkkin

"Eternal Forces" is the latest effort by Tyndale House Publishers to profit from the "Left Behind" novels, a fictional series about the apocalypse that its authors claim has won converts to Christianity.
