Demonstratively false. I haven't heard anyone defend Obama for the wiretap issue.
Come to think of it, while there was a lot of love directed at Obama for a while there, I noticed no one shouting down people who disagreed with him.
Psyco is such a nice tool; add just a couple of lines of code, and suddenly 90% of Python programs become multiple times faster on Intel processors... assuming it's single-threaded, of course.
Psyco's been lagging a bit behind lately though, and little progress has been made on shortening that list of features it doesn't support. The main reason for this has been the developer going on to work on PyPy, a subset of Python in which a Python interpreter itself can be written. The ultimate goal appears to be another massive-speedup JIT compiler, although I'm not sure how it gets there from here.
When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
