With Obama reversing Iraq withdrawal, Obamapologists put sissy in Sisyphus

Was it news to you? The Iraq withdrawal is off. The war that launched America's first black president GOES ON. Didn't the new Dissembler in Chief campaign to end the Iraq War, sort of, or uh, eventually? Skeptics were ostracized and accused of not stepping up, hope-wise. What's next, Obama's Tink dies if we all don't clap our hands in obeisance, chanting "we believe"? If American voters were upset about Guantanamo, Endless War on Terror, torture, rendition, corporations indemnified of their abuses --take your pick-- you wouldn't know it now. Were you hoping to see Bush and Co prosecuted? What did you think of the President standing by as his SCOTUS nominee gushed about the preeminence of the rule of law.

Code Pink and the Obama Left

As Code Pink capitulates in Cairo, taking consolation for eking a 1/14 size march as a compromise with Egypt, where originally they promised to march regardless the permissions granted, I'm reminded of Code Pink's role in 2008, protesting war while cheerleading for Obama. Code Pink was one of the strongest organizing forces at the Denver DNC demonstrations, but inside their clubhouse at the Mercury Cafe, decorations revealed their crush on the Man From Change. The antiwar movement needs players like Code Pink, and the indefatigable Medea Benjamin, but as the denouement of 2009 felled the last Obamapologists, I think they've lost dibs on decision making. 13305

Obamapologists task growing Sisyphean

The anticipation is building for one hell of a JANUARY 21ST wouldn't you say? While emails are flying, about invitations to this inauguration party or that, or about holding Obama's feet to whose fire on Day One, Two or Three, the President Elect continues to stack a cabinet to defy all Hope.   What is this B-Team Obama is assembling, even beyond the Cabinet? He's chosen pop- Fundamentalist minister Rick Warren to give the inaugural invocation. 5804
