I remember seeing an aerial view of the start of the first marathon race in New York City. The runners were all milling around, scarfing up carbs and health drinks and bobbing up and down trying to stay limber. Finally, there was a BOOM... the gun went off and they all started running.....over a bridge, I recall.
The view from the helicopter's camera made it look like a mass of crazy little bugs mindlessly scurrying away from a pile of trash. If roaches had a riot, that's what it would look like.
Or, it could look a lot like the GOP getting ready for the 2012 presidential race.
There have been quantities of comments and stories, written and recounted, from the pens and throats of the motley-est collection of losers I've seen in my long, long life.
Media Matters has made a little collection of the gaggle's recent output that is
amusingly panicky. If you didn't know the GOP was teetering on the brink of sheer pandemonium, this should convince you.
Here's a list. The links to the individual stories are live. Enjoy.
Obama Is "Feeble" And ""Dithering"
Now, If I Were President ...
But Obama Is Just Doing It Wrong
It's Too Late Anyway
And Obama Did It For The Wrong Reasons
He Doesn't Really Mean It
Plus, Hillary's "Over The Edge With Impatience"
And Obama Collaborated Too Much With Other Countries
But Not Enough Other Countries
Isn't This Going To Be Expensive?
Besides, We Already Have Other Wars Going On
And We Don't Even Know If We Can Trust Obama
If Nothing Else Sticks, Let's Just Call It "Obama's Iraq"
