Celebrities en masse told us over and again just how uniquely qualified Sen. Barack Obama was for the Oval Office. Remember Spike Lee's famous quote - "You have B.B.: Before Barack and A.B.: After Barack.
" Never mind the clear lack of experience. They saw past it. They are pretty smart, after all. They're famous.
But the backpedaling on their anointed candidate may have already started. Just listen to comedian Bill Maher. Maher, chatting with CNN's softball pitcher Larry King
, began making excuses for his new president this week:
I think Obama is learning, and he certainly is the smartest guy we've had there that I can remember. But there's always a learning curve.
Learning curve? The Hope and Change Express has a learning curve?
It'll be hard for Maher and his lefty acolytes to deal with the reality on the ground - that President Obama will be just like every other Democratic president (well, hopefully not worse). And there's no crime in that, but that's not the bill of goods we were sold by the Glitterati.
Who will be the next actor/singer/performer to start making apologies for the president's less than Messiah like start?
Somehow, I doubt it will be Spike Lee.
