Dowd about Obama

Now is the August of our glum disgust,
this simm'ring month of Gibbsian entropy:
tea-publicans united stand behind
confederation battle flags of yore;
the King's rule undefended by his left,
his victories unrewarded, now attacked.
But these thermodynamic melting points
do little to unfreeze a populace
frozen in absent determination.
