Milbank Criticizes The Man Who Thinks He's Already President

I am certainly no fan of Dana Milbank but this one had me laughing out loud. Milbank takes on The Obama's arrogance and audacity in today's Washington Post...

As he marches toward Inauguration Day (Election Day is but a milestone on that path), Obama's biggest challenger may not be Republican John McCain but rather his own hubris.

Some say the supremely confident Obama -- nearly 100 days from the election, he pronounces that "the odds of us winning are very good" -- has become a president-in-waiting. But in truth, he doesn't need to wait: He has already amassed the trappings of the office, without those pesky decisions.

You gotta read the whole thing. And don't forget the comments. It is a double knee-slapper to see those that used to worship at the altar of Milbank (aka Olbermann sidekick) unleash their wrath on Milbank for daring to criticize The One. One commenter even expressed disgust at the implication of calling The Obama "uppity". Well - if the damned shoe fits, Cinderella must wear it...

This snip from Milbank is priceless...

On his presidential-style visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem last week, Obama left a written prayer, intercepted by an Israeli newspaper, asking God to "help me guard against pride and despair." He seems to have the despair part under control, but the pride could be a problem.

Me-thinks the media is getting a little tired of the arrogance... at least for this week.
