69. I love how the memes work. First it was "Team of Rivals"...
.. to explain why Obama would choose people so utterly at odds with core principles of the Democratic Party (such as it is these days).

  • Howard Dean's arch enemy Rahm
  • Smarmy Homophobe Rick Warren
  • Bush's own Secretary of Defense Gates
  • Architects of our economic disaster, Summers and (to a lesser extent) Geithner.

    Now the new meme is "Be patient!"

    I remember that one from 2004 when Kerry's lawyers (whom I naively helped finance) were going to swoop down and contest the election.

    Still waiting...
