It must suck to be them. One almost (almost) feels sorry for those who can't quite come to terms with the telepromptered messiah's amateurishness and ineptitude:
San Jose, California (CNN) -- Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor and Democratic firebrand, stood behind a podium at the San Jose Convention Center and neatly summed up the current zeitgeist of the left.
"Is the president perfect?" Dean asked a buzzing audience of left-leaning bloggers, political activists and organizers on Thursday evening. "No. But it sure is better than having Bain Capital, I mean Mitt Romney, in there."
Nutroots, more like.
Dean's growling joke crystallized the prevailing liberal sentiment about President Barack Obama as the curtain rose on Netroots Nation
, the annual progressive conference started in 2006 by the creators of the Daily Kos
, a popular left-leaning blog and founding member of an online grass-roots movement that eventually helped lift Obama into the White House.
