Obama's Lament: "I Can't Have Fun Anymore!"

Too bad. So sad.

Welcome to the grownups' table, Senator Obama...

I can’t have fun anymore,” Obama said, in a comment meant to be wry but sounding wistful. “It’s not allowed.”

The guy is not, as Dan Quayle once put it, a happy camper.

He’s an American who has climbed to the most rarefied stratosphere of American life, only to find that he has to make a major speech arguing that he loves his country. (A new CNN poll shows that a quarter of registered voters say Obama lacks patriotism.)

He’s a man happily married to a strong professional woman who has to defend his wife, as he says, for being “feisty.”

He must simultaneously defend himself for being too exotic and, because of recent moves, too conventional. (So conventional that he even refused to do a fist bump with a boy at a tutoring session for kids in Zanesville, Ohio.)

No more fist bumping?

Even after his "feisty" wife went to all that trouble to defend fist-bumping on The View?

Hey! Obama can still bash the millions of us who marched for civil rights and against the war in Vietnam, though...

The 46-year-old is supposed to be the tonic for the culture wars of the 60s. In his patriotism speech, he said that “the anger and turmoil” of that generation had “never entirely drained away,” leaving our politics “trapped in these old, threadbare arguments.”

What's more fun than bashing them what brung ya to where you are today?

I guess we're all under the Obama bus now, too.

I don't mind being under the Obama bus. Really, I don't.

I just don't like the driver or the tour guide...

Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:

Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
