Ouch That Hurts, Stop It......

a: American politics ~
b: an abusive relationship

What: "What's happening here is that American politics is like an abusive relationship. The people who want Obama to walk on eggshells grew up in abusive families, or at least abusive school systems, so they feel in their bones that anyone who is not completely inoffensive will be crushed. They've lived their whole lives that way and they think everyone else should too. What really horrifies them is not that Obama will be radical and lose, but that he'll be radical and win, because that means they could have done the same thing, and they've wasted their lives."
