    That's ridiculous.

    I can think of a number of progressive figures past and present who would also do wonders in the post.

    •  They're setting up an excuse to be outraged... (5+ / 0-)

      That's all.

      They are completely wedded to their outrage, and will never, ever give it up.

      •  Exactly. (0+ / 0-)

        The logical trap goes as follows:

        1 . Elizabeth Warren is the ONLY choice for the CFPB.

        1a. If Obama picks Elizabeth Warren, he will be seen as weak for caving to bloggers, or will be seen eliminating a political threat (these are both honest, circulated fire bag conspiracies I have read).

        1b. If Obama does not pick Elizabeth Warren, then he has failed.

        Even if 1a does not hold, the same people who demanded her appointment will not be grateful for more than second before they find something else to be outraged over.

        The liberal blogosphere needs an alternative energy source.
