“People like Pat [Tea Baggers] aren’t aware of it,
but they’re the best friends Obama has. They hate
him, sure, but they don’t hate him for any reasons
that make sense. When it comes down to it, most of
them hate the president for all the usual reasons
they hate “liberals” — because he uses big words,
doesn’t believe in hell and doesn’t flip out at the
sight of gay people holding hands. Additionally, of
course, he’s black, and wasn’t born in America, and
is married to a woman who secretly hates our country.

These are the kinds of voters whom Obama’s gang of
Wall Street advisers is counting on: idiots. People
whose votes depend not on whether the party in power
delivers them jobs or protects them from economic
villains, but on what cultural markers the candidate
flashes on TV. Finance reform has become to Obama
what Iraq War coffins were to Bush: something to be
tucked safely out of sight.”
