Alright, US Left, time for a little history lesson – and a cautionary tale. Can any of you out there name a single popular democratic people’s movement for peace, liberty or social/economic justice which wasn’t finally at some point infiltrated, co-opted and bled to death by the Democratic Party? Anybody?

Bueller?

Historic Handshake

So, this week at the Summit Of The Americas, President Sparkle Pony and Cuban leader Raul Castro met for the first time, shaking hands in what’s being hailed as some kind of iconic moment. Needless to say — for some otherworldly reason — the US Left’s nipples are exploding with delight.

I’d like to suggest that my fellow US lefties calm the hell down — after all, this is President Drone Strike we’re talking about here, and he’s obviously trying to corral the Pwogwessives back onto the Democratic reservation for the 2016 Electoral Freak Circus.

More importantly, I really do hope Mr. Castro has the sense to look the hell out, and not turn his back for a moment. After, this is President Drone Strike he’s dealing with here.

In Search Of Legacy

With the conclusion of the recent Dempocalypse, President Sparkle Pony is about as lame as a duck can get. In fact, he holds the record, having been a lame duck pretty much since he took office.

So, according to this recent report at Al Jazeera, he’s jetting off to Asia trying to forget about the election and be all Presidential and statesmanlike n’shit, trying to beef up his “legacy”, whatever the hell that means.

I don’t know what he’s so worried about; between the drone warfare, the shielding of war criminals, the climbing into bed with bankers, the corporate healthcare sweetheart deal, and the NSA, it looks like President Hope’s got more legacy than he can shake a stick at.
