A headline from today’s NY Post: “Barack Obama doesn’t fear the enraged, impotent Netroots.”
Yeah, well, whatever.
If that’s the sort of self-soothing that makes the old media and political establishment feel better about their own declining fortunes, they’re free to hide their heads in that particular hole, but personally, I don’t feel all that enraged or impotent. In fact, I’m still a bit amazed at how far we have come in such a short amount of time… and daunted by how far we have yet to go.
This movement we’re part of will take a decade or two to reach full fruition, and we are a lot more patient and pragmatic than most outside observers give us credit for.
