Primary Fatigue

I’m suffering from primary fatigue. At this point, I want Obama to just be crowned because if he’s not, his supporters will be insufferable – more so than they are now.┬áMaybe he’ll win and maybe he’ll be a good president and if both those things are true I’ll feel very relieved.

If he doesn’t win, then my fears about him being able to fight and win will have been justified (it’s all on him if he loses) and we get President McCain and my preferred candidate can attempt to win the nomination again when she feels it’s time.

At the very least, all the candidates from the two main political parties are a step up from the current occupant. Not ideal, but a step above.

To quote a commenter on the SLOG, this all feels like it should be a lot more fun and exciting than it’s turned out to be and I’m just ready for it to be over.

On Obama

Obama doesn’t fight for himself, he lets his surrogates and supporters do it for him. That way he can pretend he’s above the fray while getting his message across.

And then, when that support becomes inconvenient, he says some platitudes, gets rid of the surrogate, and all is forgiven. He did it with McClurkin, he’s done it with his pastor, wink-wink/nudge-nudge/hope-change, and there he is above all the noisy rabble, just waiting to be anointed.

Hypocritical and straight from the Rovian playbook. Great job Mr. Obama.
