Once again, President Obama seems to be morphing into yet another invincible boogeyman in the febrile minds of RW carbuncles across the land. Last week, he was a Kenyan, Muslim, socialist Nazi. This week he has become the Wizard of Oz.

Seriously, just how long can this go on? Its not so much what this says about Republicanite ideology. OK, maybe it says a lot. But I think its more about the futility of the GOP's efforts to resist the inevitable.

After all, if you're up against an all-powerful, all-knowing wizard who can predict your stupidities before you commit them, what chance do you really have? Your every move will be second-guessed as you search for evidence of the next setup. Or what you may think is a setup. Perhaps the setup is a setup. You see how this goes? Good luck with that.

And just how long can the deep pockets of the SuperPACers shower the gold before they make an actual business decision and determine to cut their losses? Or maybe they will just move down ticket taking their consultants with them. Who knows?

Obama knows. The great and powerful Oz. He knows. Ooga-booga!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
