THAT DIDN'T TAKE LONG. Harper's Magazine distances itself from Barack Hoover Obama. I picked up the paper copy today (the online version is still behind the paid wall). It's by novelist Kevin Baker, written from a left perspective, and not necessarily logically consistent. In the same issue is an article headlined Yes We Can Still Torture. Harper's might be the crazy aunt in the Establishment's attic, but their disillusion is potentially more significant than that of Jay Leno or Helen Thomas.
