Obama, Wellstone a “gadfly.”

obama_3.jpgI watched with nausea as Obama spoke a while back in Minneapolis and praised and praised the popular former senator from Minnesota, Paul Wellstone, who unfortunately was killed several years ago in a plane crash.

I couldn’t help but think of David Sirota’s article about Obama in The Nation, Mr. Obama goes to Washington, in which Obama refers to Wellstone as a gadfly.  Gadfly is defined as; a persistent irritating critic; a nuisance.

In a similar vein and a must read is Harper’s Magazine’s, Barack Obama Inc.
