Uncork the champagne and blow up the balloons! (bold print mine). Obama has seen the light. He will not be accepting any dirty money from Goldman Sachs, no filthy lucre from G.E., no slimy checks from Big Pharma as payback for that back room deal that took the Public Option off the table. He has listened to We the People at long last! We held his feet to the fire about his big sell-out to the Oligarchy and he hopped up and down with the pain of our wrath. He will not let 2012 become the agony of defeat. He became humbled, and he had an epiphany. Or FDR paid him a midnight visit in the Lincoln Bedroom. I don't know and it doesn't really matter. He has changed, transformed and become a card-carrying member of We are the Ones We Can Believe In!
Huh? What was that you said? Bait and switch? There are TWO Obama re-election campaigns? One for the little people, called MyBarackObama.com? And the other one that really means something, where the President travels around and charges $50,000 a plate to do his charm offensive schtick and glad-hand the wealthy? Like the trip to Austin, TX last week where regular voters got barely a wave and a nod as he breezed into his fund-raiser? And that new DNC group called Priorities First that allows anonymous corporate donations just like the Republicans do and so totally embraces the wisdom of the Supreme Court Citizens United decision?
Oh. Never mind.

(PS: Kate Madison left a comment on the Messina Missive under the Breitbart Hoax post, below. She was actually awake when she got the 2:35 a.m. email, titled "Something Happened". Nothing like getting an email in the middle of the night with the subject "Something Happened" -- I was like, "who died?". Anyway, read Kate's comment. It says it all.)
(Correction: Kate lives in Oregon, PDST, so she got her Messina email at 11:35 p.m., not the middle of the night as I previously "misspoke". I did not mean to imply that Kate was staring at her computer in the middle of the night. I, on the other hand, occasionally do get up in the middle of the night just to check my email. I probably need help.)
