I saw this image over at Fafblog, the wonderful blog that doesn't post often enough, and didn't laugh. In part I didn't laugh out of shame, because I, the Quaker pacifist hippie mommy commie, had been thinking exactly that only the other evening: that Obama probably had to bomb somebody his first week in office, as proof that he was competent in foreign relations. Oy. What a world we live in.
I think Obama is going to learn very quickly that there is no reasoning with Congressional Republicans once you're the opposition party's President. He is no longer across the aisle.
Mister President: there is no reasoning with these people and you must get over the belief, virtuous as it is, that process can be above politics in Washington. You will learn this soon enough, I HOPE, before this turns into a Carter administration. Somebody's gotta get an elbow in the windpipe and, sorry to get personal, but I hope it's Boehner. And of course, I mean that in a completely Quaker pacifist hippie mommy commie sense.
