On Thursday night at a DNC fundraising dinner in San Francisco, President Obama took a new analogy in addressing his critics. "Another way of putting it is when, you know, I'm busy and [Speaker] Nancy [Pelosi]'s busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else's mess -- we don't want somebody sitting back saying, you're not holding the mop the right way." Obama paused for applause. "Why don't you grab a mop, why don't you help clean up."
Obama continued riffing -- "You're not mopping fast enough. That's a socialist mop" -- but sobered up quickly. "Grab a mop -- let's get to work."
By all accounts it was a magical evening. Tracy Chapman opened the event with her classic "Talkin' 'Bout a Revolution," and Barack and Nancy exchanged admissions of love. ("I love Nancy Pelosi"; "you are the greatest.")
