“It looks like this could be the end...”


Over 100 days into the Obama Administration, we have entered the age of the smirking paranoid know-it-all. “See? I told you so!” is their battle cry. And their goal is to make you poop yourself in fear.


Because now, NOW that we see that -- *gasp* -- Obama isn’t the great liberal hope some people fooled themselves into believing he was, they appear to have been proven “right.”


No, he’s not going to reverse all Bush policies. No, he’s not going to kow-tow to the lefty protest set, especially given how it does its business. No, he’s not going to fix all our problems from on high by his lonesome, or even understand what all the problems are, or how to fix them.


No, he’s not going to make Ralph Nader the Secretary of anything.


And yes, like any other politician, he’s going to appoint people who have long laundry lists of questionable behavior and troubling connections to key positions that, in an ideal world, they wouldn’t even be able to grovel at the desks of.


In an ideal world.
