Such is the burning question in Bobotland – and they even found a poll to measure this from a site named “my future spouse dot com”. I also found it interesting that the questions must differ by gender…Anyway, after they get measured, B0bots rush to report the results – shame on you, 39 and 46%! I think Booman should take you out of the party. Yes, the discussion of the pathetic “it’s payback time” article still elicits cheers, but also the most ironic post to come from B0botland:

168. Okay, so…we should stay home in 2012 because we’re not welcome anymore?

So to hell with party unity? The “progressive blogosphere” should just STFU and GTFA?

Gee, who are the PUMAs now?


Maybe it’s better when one makes those choices for oneself then.

Outside of B0botland, former allies are not taking the future spouse test. In fact they are falling by the wayside in droves – and here’s a good collection of such fresh dissent.

The most surprising was seeing that MoDo was able to take her head out of Darcy’s behind long enough to pen a column that even has some facts they all carefully held from us last year

In Springfield, he compromised so much on a health care reform bill that in the end, it merely led to a study.

And I loved the Vaclav Havel story too:

Havel, the 73-year-old former Czech president, who didn’t win a Nobel Peace Prize despite leading the Czechs and the Slovaks from communism to democracy, turned the tables and asked Smale a question about Obama, the latest winner of the peace prize.

Was it true that the president had refused to meet the Dalai Lama on his visit to Washington?

to which he concluded:

“It is only a minor compromise,” he said. “But exactly with these minor compromises start the big and dangerous ones, the real problems.”

And besides, respectable people like Helen Thomas are put off by the war against Fox

White House ought to “stay out of these fights.”

“They can only take you down. You can’t kill the messenger,

And I wonder, how much would Charles Blow score on the love test? About as much as he would on a test about W?

At the town hall in New Orleans, Obama appealed for patience. He said, “Change is hard, and big change is harder.” Is that the excuse? Now where have I heard that before? Oh, yeah. From George Bush.

Jusging from the wealth of criticism from unexpected places, maybe the loyalty check was called for. I wonder how many took it and didn’t report back – or reported a fake result? Not a poll anyone will take these days.
