"Obama is in big trouble with the dudes that used to sell him dope"
Wonkette makes that and other good points here:

Obamas talky person Robert Gibbs is in big trouble with the dudes who used to sell him dope: the Professional Left. Now that hes safely in the White House and no longer subject to the daily drug tests Americas few working people are forced to endure thrice daily, Gibbs can point and laugh at the libtards for liking communists and Canada so much that theyll even pay attention to Dennis Kucinich. Uh, but didnt Kucinich sort of choose to help Obama win the nomination, in 2008? Its hard to remember through the Fog of War & Fog of Bongs, but Kucinich did indeed tell his supporters to back Obama in the crucial Iowa primary. That sort of changed things, didnt it? As John Nichols of The Nation writes, On the day of the 2008 Democratic caucuses in Iowa, Kucinich told his supporters that if they did not have a critical mass of backers at individual caucuses, they should throw in with Obama as the most viable progressive. That was a critical decision, since Obama only narrowly beat former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, who was making a big play for liberal backing. First Lady Rielle Hunter would be doing witchcraft in Spain today if not for this clutch Iowa assist from Dennis K., right? No, but Acting President Sarah Palin would probably be nuking Spain today, to kill the Mexicans in Arizona.

Still, the Obama Administration has actually done much of what it promised, despite this awful Great Recession and a wall of sandbags in Congress called Republicans and Some Democrats. Health care for kids, a big health care law for adults, glass ceiling legislation, jobs and education bills, stimulus, etc. Staying in Afghanistan and that idiotic call for more offshore drilling really is stuff that annoys the Professional Left more than mainstream Democrat voters, and most of the latter still love their Barry O, and he actually had a pretty good night at the polls, last night. (And Obama personally called Kucinich to plead for the worthless communists crucial vote on Health Care Reform, but who can remember such things, right?)

1. I love Wonkette. Why is it that snark makes so much sense?
Gibbs lost it and made a mistake, even if the so called Professional Left can be overbearingly unhappy. Still, we had a good night last night.

4. LOL! I must admit, I prefer reading my daily news through Wonkette.
Sometimes bad news looks funnier this way.

6. John Nichols really distorts the results in Iowa
Obama had 38% of the vote - Edwards 30%, Hillary 29%. That is ,ost definately not "narrowly beating". This type of thing is why, though I often agree with his positions, I find Nichols an AWFUL journalist. He seems to never look anything up.
