Funny But True

This is funny:

but it’s also true.

Look, Obama isn’t Jesus.

If you go to factcheck.org you’ll see that he can twist, stretch and embroider the truth with the best of them. Let’s get real, he’s a politician. And there’s only so much the president can do anyway.

What I’m hoping to get from Obama is what I hoped to get from Clinton. I’m hoping for a change in the zeitgeist. I didn’t realize at the time that the Clintons are a part of the zeitgeist. Bill, Hillary, McCain, Rove, Bush, Cheney–all of them are talking to fellow Baby Boomers. Obama is talking to the generation that will replace the Baby Boomers.

Obama is–or can be–a turning point. Something that we have been needing for a very long time.

If he is elected, he will be a turning point in history. And that makes me feel like that song.
