I hope that this is *false* amazement over Obama's FISA betrayal.

Not that I consider it a betrayal, but then, I wouldn't.

Glenn Greenwald and Matt Stoller are predictably upset that Senator Barack Obama has chosen to help out pro-FISA compromise and Blue Dog Democrat John Barrow (GA) over anti-FISA compromise and progressive Regina Thomas by cutting an ad for the former. It would be a pity if this was true upset; these two are often touted as being shining lights of the progressive blogosphere, so it'll make us all look bad if either or both turn out to actually only have the cognitive development of a badly-socialized greyhound. After all, it's fairly clear why Senator Obama has made this call: conservative Democrats, particularly Georgian ones, have alternatives.

At this point, progressives don't.

So I suggest that the two of them shut up and get on with the job of writing puff pieces about the Democratic candidate for President, and how you should give him all of your money. That's pretty much the task that's been assigned to them by their betters, and the sooner they learn their place, the sooner that they'll grow accustomed to it.

because the world doesn't conform to their firmly-believed delusions. Obama will continue to sidle towards midship while they who know better learn that their place for the next few months is in steerage. And if Obama should be elected, in harmless powerless spots [Dept of Labor] where they can gnash their teeth in public.

Their market consists of the portion of the left that is having their heads explode over FISA (You really have to ask is death by terrorist their preferred method of suicide ?)

So what are they going to do ? They could be sensible but that would be biting the hand that feeds them scraps or they can pander.
