It's sad to have been right about Obama

I guess in the back of my mind I hoped that I was just being a curmudgeon with my anti-Obama posts and that he, in reality, wouldn't go so far in repudiating Progressive politics. I was wrong about that, and I'm not gloating that I pegged Obama months ago.

The latest is potential support for offshore oil drilling, i.e. destroying fragile marine ecosystems for the benefit of oil companies with no real benefit for ordinary American consumers.

Ecce Homo: Here is your man.

It just goes to prove that if you put unqualified trust into a politician he or she will fuck you and fuck you over, then fuck you over some more just to show you that he or she is fucking you over. Trust like that is the equivalent of giving crack to a kid and then setting them loose in a candy store, to mix a few metaphors.

The question is: what the hell do we do now?
