Does The Tide Turn?

This story from The Washington Post points out the rising number of irreverent Obama web sites. Obviously, they're a reaction to the quasi-religious veneration of Obama's "followers" -- and the refusal of the MSM to treat him with anything but raw adoration.

But the sites also point to a law of political gravity. The fact is that no man can sustain the degree and kind of support, verging on worship, that Obama has received -- especially when so much of it is based not on his policies, but on some kind of cult of personality.

The Hillary people know this. But what must be frustrating for them is to wonder whether, by the time some of the air comes out of the Obama balloon, it will be too late.

Of course the tide has turned. One need no further verification than the AP's illustrious Nedra Pickler's decision to mainstream right wing hoax hate e-mail directed at Barack Obama.

One of the few benefits of starting the campaign season so freakin' early is that in a few months folks could likely be sick to death of Obama. Those of us more thoughtful types have been sick for quite awhile. But then, we don't fall for the bluster.
