Please, no jumping on the MoDo bandwagon

Please, no jumping on the MoDo bandwagon

So she writes another “Obama’s not all he was cracked up to be” column, and everyone is ready to stick a fork in him because MoDo says he’s done.

Pahleeeese.  This is what MoDo does.  Two weeks after Republicans nominate someone for president, she’ll write a column sticking a fork in that person and swooning at the sight and sound of The One.

Like hooking up with her first true love, even though it’s been forever.  She’ll never forget her first.

MoDo has yet to do a Gail Collins and crouch in a fetal position under the bed with a pillow over her head.

Until then, it words, just words.

Already lashed myself to the mast, Skipper.

The weather started getting rough,
The tiny Prez was tossed,
If not for the bias of the fearless press
O would be lost, O would be lost

He didn’t end up a castaway then … but he was part of that generation of eventual Hollywood entertainers who were on America’s side).

It is more important than ever to keep the pressure on!! The chinks in the Dem armor are mounting! See the following Salon post. And if you want some real checkles, delve through the comments.

    This was the most interesting paragraph in that Salon article:

    “Obama has ruined the Democratic Party. The 2010 wipeout was an electoral catastrophe so bad you’d have to go back to 1894 to find comparable losses. From 2008 to 2010, according to Gallup, the fastest growing demographic party label was former Democrat. Obama took over the party in 2008 with 36 percent of Americans considering themselves Democrats. Within just two years, that number had dropped to 31 percent, which tied a 22-year low.”

The issue is not will MoDo support Obama and excoriate whichever Republican runs against him. The issue has now become whether the left’s alienation from Obama is sufficiently powerful to induce a challenge to him in Iowa or New Hampshire. I would say that the severity of Dowd’s critique which is replicated widely among liberal pundits, bloggers and activists has reached the point where someone like Dennis Kucinich might run. Of course, such a challenger could not rest the nomination from Obama but could become a stalking horse for a more competitive candidate like Teddy in 1980 or Bobby Kennedy in 1968 or even push Obama to reconsider running again.

Of course, Obama has the unusual security of knowing that Black voters who make up as much as 30 percent of Dem voters in some primary states (more in a few) will stick by him by as much as 90 percent. Even so, liberals have now become hopping mad, and Obama will have to take some radical steps to appease them. But he cannot without ensuring his defeat in the general.

Here is what I already said about MoDo’s column over at HotAir:

“I must say that it was the first time I ever recall enjoying reading an entire column by Maureen Dowd . . . literally, from start to finish! I was nodding in agreement with so many of her choices of political landing points, if you will, that it was interrupting my reading! Letterman’s Top Ten shot; Harry Reid counseling more “aggressiveness;” Matt Miller’s taunting list of synonyms for “cave” . . . shards of her cutting sarcasm all, this time rapidly hurled at The Won!

And, I was smiling as I read because it was obviously so painful for her to finally tell a relatively unvarnished version of “the truth” about this guy. For me, it was as if she had suddenly awakened, all cranky and cursing the sun that was shining. But for MoDo, she no doubt felt she was recording a horrid and repetitive nightmare, and in her inimitable way was desperately crying out to the great shrink in the sky for political guidance on how to get back to sleep without encountering that damned dream again!

Heh! Sorry, MoDo. It’ll be back. Better than ever!”
. . . .

Not exactly on the bandwagon.

But it sure is fun witnessing them begin to tear one another apart.

And, Professor, if the Republican should win Weiner’s seat, then I think you will likely get Gail Collins EXTRA out of the poor, fragile Ms. Dowd. Heh.

THAT, after all was Boston . . . THIS is New York!

But what is it that has happened this week that these former lovers spitting the dummy?

Tomasky in the guardian was often mini -moaning but now it is full crying?

To me -he is just his normal self.

He -being Obama. I do sense that Michelle is pissed off. Note that Valerie had to drag him off to The BIG DONOR guy at MV .

I had just read a report of her dragging him off to a SC event for black graduates re the 08 election . Bama was tired. Jarret said -“you want to win don’t you?”

It seems to me he is on heavy antidepressants.
