Writing is more than anything a compulsion, like some people wash their hands thirty times a day for fear of awful consequences if they do not. It pays a whole lot better than this type of compulsion, but it is no more heroic.

There is only one area of life where you can wildly support a loser and be considered cool for it: sports. Being a sports fan gives you a pass to dress up and paint yourself and buy paraphernalia and get away with it - even if your team sucks eggs.

People who continue to have Obama bumper stickers on their cars and who still get excited about all things Obama run the risk of having their cool card - should they have possessed one - revoked indefinitely. His O-lympic fail and the sheer incompetency of it at every level - from the "intelligence" that said it was a shoe-in to the horrible presentations given by Barry and Michelle - puts them in league with the worst teams in history. For a guy who seemingly had mojo to burn, he did just that with it. ObamaCare, Cap and Trade, the stimulus, the unemployment rate, Afghanistan, ACORN, Cash for Clunkers... Forget gold. Everything Obama touches turns to lead.

You can root for a sports team that sucks. That kind of loyalty is admirable. You can't root for a politician who consistently turns in a performance this bad. That's not admirable; that's just foolish. And this week, he continues to press for the notorious "public option."

Think of Obama's home town team, the Cubs.

Historically a winning franchise, they have sucked for most of Obama's adult life.

Coincidence? I think not.

So I should bet against the Redskins?

And now you've designated yourself bumper sticker czar.

What a laugh. It's been 11 months since the election, but clearly your bruised ego needs additional time to heal.

Now that I think of it, I see precious few McCain PALIN stickers these days.

Thank god for small blessings.

I'm with you on those McCain bumper stickers. Thankfully, most of the ones I see nowadays have the "McCain" scratched off. Great edit!
