“Obama That I Used To Know.”
(for those without video: it’s a dang good political parody of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know*)
…and I want you to contemplate this: the people who made that video are neither Republicans nor conservatives (they didn’t like Palin and they don’t like Romney). They are, in fact, criticizing Obama from the Left. And they spent time, resources, and creativity making this video, instead of doing something that might actually get Barack Obama reelected**. This entertains me, because all the creative people on our side are busy doing their best to actually, well, win.
Guess how that kind of creative competition ends? No, go ahead: guess.

*Great song, by the way. Although I like this version.
**Admittedly, the fact that apparently neither person in the video got around to voting for Obama in 2008 weakens that argument a touch. But only a touch; after all, it just reinforces the point that at this moment in American history the Obama administration has become one of the forces of reaction trying to protect its crumbling place of privilege, or whatever the buzz phrase is that will cause Marxists to develop a sudden case of acute alcoholism.
