No We Can't

The Times of London, which won our hearts by calling Obama's infomercial a "mawkish weepathon," now gives us a glimpse into the mind of the Messiah:

Barack Obama's senior advisers have drawn up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins next week's election, amid concerns that many of his euphoric supporters are harbouring unrealistic hopes of what he can achieve...

One senior adviser told The Times that the first few weeks of the transition, immediately after the election, were critical, "so there's not a vast mood swing from exhilaration and euphoria to despair".

Isn't it customary to win the election before you start telling your followers not to get their hopes up? If there's one thing Americans love, it's an arrogant scold telling them to simmer down.
