Douchebag of the week – Barack Obama.

Douchebag of the Week!It had to happen sooner or later, someone in the media was going to take a look at Senator Obama one morning before they put on their rose colored glasses and see that there is more going on than pretty speeches and a million dollar smile.  It almost happened when his wife said she was finally proud of her country for the first time in her life, er, adult life, but then they quickly put the glasses on and all was right in their world.  Now they’ve been forced to look at him in a semi-critical light and he’s lost a bit of his shine.

It’s not just the Jeremiah Wright stuff, though his refusal to simply say “Wow, that’s messed up.  I do not and have not ever thought that way, that stuff’s crazy,” and instead take us on a tour of all the sins people who are dead committed before most of us were born as some sort of weird justification for Wright’s rants.  Forgive the Star Trek reference here, but it’s almost like we’re Klingons and the son is responsible for the sins of the father.  Stupid, and missed the point.

It’s also his revelation that he was a lot closer to the disgraced Tony Rezko than anyone knew, which is actually about political corruption.  Sure, this is also the fault of the media, but we’ve already blamed them.  The guy helped him buy a house through some shady dealings and just NOW we find this out?  Sure, the media has focused on the Wright stuff instead of this because this would actually hurt him more, but that just means it’s ammo for the general election, so good.

And let’s not forget his back room blocking of re-votes in Florida and Michigan.  Sure, that increases the odds of John McCain winning in November, but still, that’s pretty cowardly.  He could easily agree to a re-vote, but it would risk his lead, could tarnish his armor, might allow 2 of the largest states to have a say in who their party nominates.  Can’t have that!

Add to that his running away from any tough interviews (have you seen him on Meet the Press lately?) and complete, cowardly boycott of Fox News (he wants to bring people together, just not those people who watch Fox News, they don’t count) and you’ve got the makings of a major league douchebag!

So congratulations Barack Obama, you have arrived.  For all these reasons and more, YOU are the Douchebag of the Week!
