ho ho ho

i dunno; i'm a liberal (hell, i was even in in iowa canvassing for obama this past winter before the caucus - yes, it was as miserable an experience as it sounds), but i have lately found myself veering towards McCain. (no, not because i don't like neighborhood stores.)

seems to me that krauthammer's last column nailed it: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/17/AR2008071701839.html

(i am aware that is probably the only time i will ever utter that phrase.)

Switch the anecdotes appropriately, change "Obama" to "McCain" and the sense of Krauthammer's screed is unchanged. Try the same with "Hillary," "George W. Bush", "Bill Clinton." It's not hard to find anecdotes in each case demonstrating the same preening sense of self-worth. Krauthammer specializes in high-falutin' takedowns of Democratic pols. They're always in bad faith, creepy when looked at too closely, and based on air and utter bullshit. Take note of the time he claimed on-air that as "the only psychiatrist on this panel" (if I remember correctly it was FOX's Sunday show, it might have Britt Hume's weekday panel) he was capable of diagnosing Al Gore's severe psychiatric issues.

The man is a disgraceful hack who shouldn't occupy the distinguished position he's been accorded in the public square.
