Calm Down, Folks

I normally love Josh Marshall's TPM blog, and his normally calm, incisive commentary. But when he gets jittery, and joins the "Obama is f***ing up" teeth gnashing in vogue among liberals right now, you know things may be are getting out of hand.

I'm glad Obama isn't listening too closely to the commentariat's calls to go tearing after McCain. Ironically, it's similar to the same angst Obama supporters had last summer, when he was down in the dumps in the polls against Hillary.

Turned out that Obama had an uncanny sense of timing, knew just when to engage and when people would be paying attention, and that there is much valor in holding the powder dry. 

So calm down, folks. People are watching the Olympics, not politics.
