What Would Baby Jesus Do??

The howler is not making this up. Obama supporters are framing any controversy, such as whether or not the Senate should kick Lieberman out of the Dem caucus or at minimum strip him of his chair so he won't be able to mole around the chamber and whisper sweet little secrets in Mitch McConnell's ears, as what would Jesus, er, what would Obama do? Greenwald explains:

[K]ey Obama ally Chris Dodd last week was dispatched to announce that Obama does not want a fight over Joe Lieberman's status. Dodd informed us that the key question that should be guiding the decision-making process is: "What does Barack Obama want?" Dodd's instruction was at least slightly less deferential than the formulation used by this commenter here yesterday, who actually said -- with no irony -- that, in political controversies, we should be guided by this question: "What would Obama do?" That sentiment tracks this unbelievably creepy website which exists -- as its own banner proudly proclaims -- "to encourage supporters to always think, 'What Would Obama Do?' in their political dealings, so we, too, can create a new form of politics."
Yes we can...!! Create a more perfect union that continues the same wonderful tradition of "controversial Bush administration intelligence policies" like rendition, torture, surveillance and all the good fun stuff from the last eight years.
President-elect Barack Obama is unlikely to radically overhaul controversial Bush administration intelligence policies, advisers say, an approach that is almost certain to create tension within the Democratic Party.
You see, it seems every promise Obama made on the campaign trail is now negotiable. His presidential Web site has been scrubbed clean; and you've got no proof.

President-elect Barack Obama over the weekend scrubbed his transition Web site, deleting most of what had been a massive agenda for his first term that appears on his campaign's site.

Gone from Change.gov are the promises on how an Obama administration would handle 25 agenda items — from Iraq and immigration to taxes and urban policy — which the campaign first laid out on the Web site http://www.barackobama.com/.

As The Washington Times first reported Monday morning, the official agenda on Change.gov has been boiled down to one vague paragraph proclaiming a plan "to revive the economy, to fix our health care, education, and social security systems, to define a clear path to energy independence, to end the war in Iraq responsibly and finish our mission in Afghanistan, and to work with our allies to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, among many other domestic and foreign policy objectives.

Now don't nag, all you dupes who bought the pony cart on the promise of a Shetland after Election Day. Neight away and get over yourselves. Cheer the new president just like you demanded Hillary and her supporters do after her loss. And whatever you do, don't expect him to help you win a close election and ruin his pristine reputation as The Luminescent One.

You gotta get over this and move on, or its going to consume your life. This isn't healthy.
To the richmond democrat: We do still have a First Amendment, don't we? The last time I check this blog was the property of HL, which means she gets to post whatever she damn well pleases.
