Are we trapped in some kind of terrible fairly tale in which an evil witch has metamorphed Obama in a squeaking mouse?

Because, that's all he EVER does these days (when he's not on vacation), he squeaks. No fire, no liberal passion, no "standing up and being counted" -- just squeaks.

Also, he "reacts" to McCain. What does he do when McCain is not asserting himself? Couch potato television? Who knows, but what we DO know is that he won't even squeak unless McCain gives him something to react to.

Suddenly he's turned into a McCain reaction machine. Not an Obama ACTOR, but just a McCain REACTOR. And when he does react he squeaks out something that sounds like a page from an academic paper that mesmerizes everyone into a coma.

What happened to his funkiness? Where's the passion? Where's the down and dirty political street fighting? And most of all, where's the moral outrage. Jesus, he's turned into Nancy Pelosi in slacks.

And naturally, the polls are going straight to hell. He had incredible (mostly progressive) momentum at the beginning of this presidential campaign, but he's pooped it all away in, what (?), one month. A Zogby/Reuters poll, 8/20, has him down five point from McCain. Not ever f_____ even, but DOWN, and down BIG!

Oh, God, God, God, not ANOTHER ONE! Not another democrat (no upper case for this party) who snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. Tell me it ain't so.

And yet, there could be some constructive conclusions from the polls and from the general disgust of even centrist voters for Obama's reactive squeaks.
