We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The press will remain loyal because he's a Lefty and because he's a black dude, but he's been shooting foul shots for over three years and missing the basket.

I love all the media references to Obama the "hoops star" jock. The constant videos of him taking that weak ass jump shot, pick-up games with NBA players, etc.
He was a third string bench warmer, whining for more playing time on The Punaho School varsity, which wasn't exactly the Power Memorial High School of the Islands.
He's that player that took a shot every time the ball came to him regardless of the situation and only passed if he was totally covered up. He's also that player that fussed at everyone else for missing a shot and not passing him the ball more.
