All day people were coming up to me anxiously. Was I worried about what Obama was going to do to the country? Did I think he is a secret Muslim? I heard he was sworn into the Senate on a Qu'ran. Does he have friends in Al Qaida?
Whoa. Big surprise there. I can see why liberals take the political attitude of "Y'know, why don't we just get as far as possible from that?" Is that a sophisticated, nuanced approach for progressives to take? No, but it's one that an Assistant Village Idiot can understand.
Progressives also said irritating things today, but predictably irritating, and not crazy, so I didn't mind.
