So OK re the whole Obama thing, remember when I admonished people for not enjoying the spectacle of Republicans with their pants round their ankles, running six ways from crazy a coupla months ago, because it was rare to get a win, and it wouldn't last, and soon it wouldn't be fun anymore?

Well, OK, I can officially declare I am not having fun anymore. I noticed this a couple of days when I went to click on the bookmark for nationalreview.com, the centre of US right-wing sane craziness -- and decided not to. For a while -- since about November 5 last year I think – it's been great to read their rolling blog The Corner an extended version of the sick room dialogue in Cuckoo's Nest, try to convince themselves that everything Obama got done, from overtures to the Arab world to getting two journos back from North Korea, was some sort of catastrophic disaster for the US.
