This sucks. I was never that big a Carlin fan until I saw him in The Aristocrats.
Cenk Uygur rails against Barack Obama on FISA. I don't think that Obama's money problems have anything to do with his recent lurch to the center; at the very least, the timing doesn't work out for that thesis. There is some possibility of declining money totals, and Obama having to headline events instead of campaigning. He might have some trouble with his liberal base. At the same time, it won't matter for the general, but it's going to ding him pretty badly when/if he gets into office. It took three months for the liberal internet space to flip on the Democratic Congress in 2006; we'll see how long that process takes for President Obama.
