Milbank Discovers Obama’s Unending Campaign

Political analysis ain’t rocket science, unless you think of it as North Korean rocket science.

And that explains why Dana Milbank, perhaps in a random act of success, has discovered the following:

In a political culture that long ago surrendered to the permanent campaign, Obama has managed to take things to a whole new level.

After some well-deserved Obama bashing with a dash of ‘Republicans do it too’ (even though not nearly at the whole new level previously mentioned) Milbank needs to ask a question and get off the stage:

… Obama’s acquiescence to an intolerable status quo raises a question: Shouldn’t presidential leadership be about setting an example?

The obvious answer is yes. The real-world challenge in squaring the circle is seen in much the President does ranging from private money to Super PACs to his own tax return. It can be summarized as Do as I say and not as I do, or alternatively, Pay as I say and not as I pay.

While it is all quite unseemly, I don’t think these issues will keep Mr. Milbank from again voting for President Obama.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
