Immune to Reality
V.D. Hanson Edition

You know, sometimes this stuff--though innocuous by the standards of people like our good buddy V.D., really brings home how completely isolated from reality the really nutty wingnuts are. If there's something akin to a dictionary entry somewhere for "no sense of perspective," this quote should be included as an illustration:
"We are quite literally after two weeks teetering on an Obama implosion—and with no Dick Morris to bail him out—brought on by messianic delusions of grandeur, hubris, and a strange naivete that soaring rhetoric and a multiracial profile can add requisite cover to good old-fashioned Chicago politicking," --Victor Davis Hanson.

I like having V.D. around though. He makes me feel smart.

So now we've got Obama's number. Funny: not long ago VDH was pushing the hilariously desperate "no-one really knows who he is" line -- and even fleshing it out with ominous questions like "we don't really know how he got into Harvard Law School."

Think about it:

Obama gets into Harvard Law School: mystery.
G W Bush gets into Yale: Not a mystery.

Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds...

(Incidentally, I freakin' hate it when people misuse/misquote that line like that...)
