The Obamanator

Love it:

MoveOn, the advocacy group supporting Barack Obama, has decided to permanently shutter its 527 operation, partly in response to the Illinois Senator's insistence that such groups should not spend on his behalf during the general election, I've learned from the group's spokesperson.

MoveOn's decision, which will dramatically impact the way it raises money on Obama's behalf, is yet another sign of how rapidly Obama is taking control of the apparatus that's gearing up on his behalf.

I don't believe Obama is going to everything I want and do it to my satisfaction but, damn... he's off to a good start.

These 527's are about the worst thing to happen to our democracy since [insert favorite democratic travesty from the past 8 years].
