Daily Show Says, In: Historic, Out: Inevitable, Sad: Green Wall

Not only a big night for the Democrats, Tuesday's Barackification was a big finish line at the ol' Daily Show. Jon Stewart summed it all up, clip-style. Including my favorite, "I'd love to get Abraham Lincoln's reaction to this," says Olbermann. Apparently Lincoln would say "I hate theaters!" Stewart does make a larger point —"naysayers" is a great word. I'm bringing it back ASAP. It will be the new fist-bump.

And then the vintage, historic montage of pundits declaring Hillary inevitable. What happened? Theories of course, abound. Ohhh, and McCain's unfortunate speechifying got the treatment. I can't watch. It hurts too much. The one thing that is clear, now that the Tuesday night confetti has settled, and that big green backdrop has been dismantled, it's going to be a good year for Mr. Stewart.

Another misrepresentation McCain has been spreading! His website has been saying that Obama opposed the Kyl-Lieberman bill, "without mentioning any support for IRGC Designation...Obama's webiste provides no indication that Obama favors designating the IRGC as a terrorist organization"...meaning that McCain is suggesting that Obama has been vague about his stance on the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. In fact, Obama co-sponsored an earlier bill that called for designating the IRGC as a terrorist organization!!! . Either McCain is completely ignorant, or he is deliberately misrepresenting where Obama stands.

I was listening to Ed Shultz today and he had a guest that knew Obama well. I can't remember his name but he was a union worker/organizer in Chicago. He talked about needing the support of republicans to get a bill passed in the state legislature. He went to Barack and spoke with him. Obama introduced him to a republican he thought would be of help. She was helpful and after talks back and forth the legislation was introduced and passed. Barack Obama is more than just speeches.

"Do you think people will eventually resent all his powerful and moving "talk" when it's compared to his lack of experience and "action?"" I think that the more he is explored, the more people will be surprised about him in a good way. For example, McCain talks trash about Obama in regards to Iran and then suggests divestment tactics. What McCain failed to realize is that Obama sponsored divestment legislation aimed at Iran in 2007. .(the Republicans are still holding this legislation up in Congress, as a Bush adminstration tactic carried out by Alabama Republican Senator Richard Shelby). As of this day, it is still on "hold". I think Obama has really brilliant policy ideas...the media just doesn't usually give them a lot of attention. He has given many very specific policy speeches, like yesterday at the AIPAC meeting, and on May 14th in Michigan (economic policy). The only place I have been able to find the full text of these speeches are on Obama's website.

Certainly some of the energy will fade, but that doesn't mean Obama will be a total disappointment. He's got the added pressure of possibly being the first black president so I expect he'll be more careful about not letting the people around him screw up or slack off and rest on superstar status. I think it's a matter of whether you believe there's any substance behind the words - I think the fact that he came from nowhere to best Hillary and the rest of the crowd of Democratic candidates suggests he's not just a flash.

Honestly I think Hilary's electability is no longer an issue. Some things about Obama are a liability, and I'm no longer positive we'll have a Democrat in the White House next term like I was a year ago, BUT someone who thumbs her nose at the election process by holding superdelegates over our heads isn't going to make a good nominee - what is her platform going to be? "Now vote for me, I promise this time it'll count"? And yeah, McCain's speech made me cringe. That backdrop was hideous!

Forget about Stewart, he's always a winner. But what do you guys think. Do you think that all this Barack energy will last? Do you think people will eventually resent all his powerful and moving "talk" when it's compared to his lack of experience and "action?" When I see the support for Obama right now, I'm reminded of the clips of the pundits saying Hillary is the sure candidate.
