Kicking Around

Kari Chisolm at Blue Oregon:

Is there a veep pick that Obama could reasonably made that would have made you Nattering Nabobs of Naderism happy enough to get on the Obama train 100%?

Sycophancy is what Kari’s advocating here, folks.

Thoughtful support isn’t what Kari wants. It’s slavish boosterism and adulation.

Why the hell would I “get on the Obama train 100%”? I’ve never been on anybody’s train 100% (or 1000%). I don’t even support myself 100%; I know too many of my own flaws.

And the choice of language cues is truly priceless. Next thing you know, we’ll be hearing about “peace with honor” in Iraq.
