Is it a slow news day or self doubts flog a new way of fanatism? Found this tracking my traffic. Timing is bizare at least – but maybe it’s part of the new “democrat on democrat” trend Politico was trumpeting.

One cannot touch The One they think they brought in, so they have to find someone to pile on.

Just as a refresher to guests:

PUMA are about honest elections, civil rights – including women and gays (not the DNC abridged definition), no war, economic rights for the not so very rich as well, lock box social security and single payer healthcare. We are against misogyny – that’s why we defended Sarah Palin against the hangings in efigy, threats of rape and fabricated baby stories – not because we are Republicans.

We started as Democrats (hence the meaning of the acronym) – but some of us left the party after the fixed primaries of last year.

Oh, and we dislike Kim Gandy because she was invisible during the Bros before Hos part of 2004 but emerged afterwards ready to defend…Michelle and declare Palin a dude. Somehow, we had the naive belief NOW was there for its constituents, not for the male candidate/Democratic party.

I either do better since my local chanels now require switching wires to receive them, or, considering I am on the internet a lot, the cult is less far reaching.

It took reading a Politico piece about the wearing off the cult for me to find out

starting with the hastily scheduled Friday address. But its first event might have backfired a bit. Its main consequence was proving that the magnetism of Obama’s personal appearances has worn off, as it drew little media attention and a dismissive tweet from the key Senate Republican, Chuck Grassley of Iowa: “Waste of time.”

Wow! maybe it’s because it was “hastily scheduled”

After all, the article is full of

“No one gets rich betting against Barack Obama.”

from his cronies. Which is an interesting choice of words, considering Rezko & al who got rich betting on him. But the article does tell us that the famous cool is gone . In favt, the theme or the article is that Mr Change is changing agenda

TOTUS has changed tone:

Even Obama’s scripted speeches are deliberately more forceful, aggressive and direct in taking on critics, aides say.

Well, if TOTUS changed gear, can Obama be far behind? It appears that Mr Post-partisan shed yet another skin

Obama’s political operation has dispensed with its post-inauguration cocktails for Republicans – or more often, ignoring them outright — in favor of the old politics of engage, attack and cajole. Obama’s even engaging in a little Democrat-on-Democrat politics, as his ex-campaign arm is beaming TV ads into the home states of moderate fence-sitters on health care.

Democrat on Democrat? Why does this have an incestuous sound to it? It’s definitely as far of principles as Obama ever was. On second thought, it’s more cannibalistic than incestuous.

I for one am grateful that I manage to have – so far – an Obama-less summer – and  notice the rumblings from afar. yet another sign there is a Jr.jr out there.
