So writes Jon Schwarz on his A Tiny Revolution, this morning...
So Barack Obama just recorded a radio ad for Rep. John Barrow (D-GA). Barrow has accused Democrats of wanting to "cut and run" in Iraq, and enthusiastically supports telcom immunity. He needs Obama's support because he's being challenged in the primary by State Senator Regina Thomas. Bonus scumbaginess: Barrow is white, Thomas is an African-American woman. Glenn Greenwald has the appalling details here.Here's Greenwald on Thomas:
(A notorious BUSH-Dog DINO) Barrow faces a serious primary challenge in July from State Senator Regina Thomas, who decided to run against Barrow due to -- as she told Howie Klein when she announced -- "Barrow's failure to support his constituents against the encroachments of powerful Big Business interests." As Klein noted yesterday, Thomas' positions on both foreign and domestic policy are firmly in line with Barack Obama's views and with the Democratic base in that district, while Barrow has continuously supported the most extremist Bush policies, as he himself proudly boasts.Yet Barry's supporting Barrow? What the FUck?
Actually, Obama proved his bona fides as a scum-sucking status-quo monkey in 2006. I don't know why anybody is surprised. After all, Barry backed WhollyJoe last cycle.
The only thing that matters to an incumbent is incumbency. And our boy Barry's no exception.
No exception, no change. Jus' the new bahss, same as the ol' bahss...
