And they said Bush wants to be a dictator.

As Jim Geraghty reported this morning, Michelle Obama is the gift that keeps on giving. In a recent speech she gave us a glimpse of what you and I will and won’t be allowed to do under President MesmerO:

 Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

I’m sorry but I’ve come by my cynicism honestly and you can have it when you pry it from my cold dead fingers. 

To follow up on my posts below, James Lileks noted this morning that: “There is tremendous faith in his ability to just wave a love-wand and get things done. . . Perhaps they don’t mind a fellow on a white horse if he promises to nationalize the stables.”

Lileks also points out one of the upsides we conservatives can look forward to under the Dali Obama administration:

If he wins, I do look forward to dissenting; since it’s been established as the highest form of patriotism, I expect my arguments will be met with grave respect. Shhhh! He’s dissenting.

Yes, it’s going to be a glorious day.
