Krauthammer's Pathetic Envy

So sad, pathetic (and habitually wrong) Charles Krauthammer seems to have run out of ideas for half-assed anti-Obama arguments. All he's got now is bitter fabrication and name-calling. You see, it turns out that the real problem with Obama is that he's vain.

What is this, gradeschool?

Remember turdblossom's accusation that Obama was "coolly arrogant?" and that "Even if you've never met him you know this guy. He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."


Rove and Krauthammer are cut from the same sad cloth, and they're clearly on the same page here. But let's review the really important points here:

1. You know these things even if you haven't met Obama
(Translation: these are axioms, or matters of faith. They have nothing to do with the actual, ya know, facts about, ya know, Obama.)

2. He's the guy who makes snide comments about you.
(In reality: who's making the snide comments here? And who's got better things to do--like run for president--and, in fact, doesn't even notice the guys making the comments?)

3. He's the guy with the beautiful date.
(There's the real rub. All the rest is just epiphenomenal.)

4. Of the following people, which one has spent the least time at the country club?: Charles Krauthammer, KKKarl Rove, Barack Obama?
(And WTF is a "country club" anyway? Does anybody even know?)

Now, one of my favorite bits of the latest pathetic Krauthammer pathetic-ness is the bit about how Obama doesn't have any significant publications. See, he's too much of an egghead to be president, but he's also not enough of an egghead! Get it?

You want something to be annoyed about, don't look to Obama's publication record. Here's something much more amazing: Charles Krauthammer writes op-eds for the Washington Post and he's a bitter idiot who has never been right about anything!

How's that for amazing?

I have a hard time believing that Rove, Krauthammer, Kristol, etc., don't know that what they're doing is intellectually dishonest. To me what's worse is that they know this rhetoric is juvenile and dishonest, and they just don't care.

In the meantime nobody (with the exception of Jon Stewart and the Daily Show type of folks) gives a rat's ass that public political discourse is, at best, the equivalent of third-grade playground banter.

So much for the thriving market-place of ideas.

If I were Krauthammer, I'd say that Krauthammer is constantly struggling to reconcile his broken body with his idealization of complete self-reliance and that the way he deals with the dissonance is by lashing out with bitter blame at everyone else.
