Obama’s Critique of Sanders

This is slightly mis-labelled. The president was not attacking Sanders’ ideology of fairness. But he was clearly separating himself from Sanders’ dogmatic insistence on revolutionary transformation.

And it just got to me. I dunno. Just that note of hope, of acknowledging the progress... It got to me.

The Obama Administration set up a “We the People” petition system — where a petition by an ordinary citizen requires a White House response if it gets 25,000 signatures within 30 days — and they've had a lot crazy requests. This one is the best - as is the response.

Created on Nov. 14, 2012, the petition demands that the Obama Administration “secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.” It earned 34,435 signatures, more than enough to force a White House response, which was just posted to the White House Petitions website, penned by Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget. You can read it here, and yes, that's the actual title. It is quite simply the most awesome thing ever:

This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For.

Go. Read. Flail.

WELL DONE AMERICA!

Am rushed off my feet, so I shall just link to Ta-Nehisi Coates:

Hippies Wander Into the Lions' Den, Maul Lions 


I am not sure what more to make of this. I would not say that the battle is over, but that some monster of American history, some wraith, some awful Power went into battle last night, and is presently limping away mortally wounded. The beast-handlers know this. I think it's broadcast in Bill O'Reilly's open racism, in Karl Rove's flight into lunacy. It is slowly dawning on them: This isn't 1968. The hippies are punching back.

Snatched this from [livejournal.com profile] obama_daily. Dear Americans, you have the most adorable President ever.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, a Republican member of the Cabinet, feigns being a blocking back for President Barack Obama as he arrives backstage to meet with GOP House leaders before speaking to their issues conference at the Renaissance Baltimore Harbor Place Hotel in Baltimore, Md., Jan. 29, 2010.
