Maureen Dowd, New York Times opiner, comes out with a curious piece titled Obama – just too good for us. You sorta wonder why she’d do up such a piece at this late date. She caught on to Barama too late with too little insight, and even then missed the most salient point - that he and Hillary Clinton are about to enter history together for trying to take down the most successful country that ever existed. Considering them together, in what we might call (with spectacular originality) A Deplorable Basket, it just seems natural.
Obama and Hillary in some ways are mirrors of each other; in other ways, photographic negatives. They’re alike in that the focus of each is self -- self with a vengeance, in a way so exaggerated as to escape the comprehension of normal people. Each thinks him/herself the smartiest pants in the room, maybe even the world, perhaps even the galaxy. Both have perfectly average intelligence, scant talent, zero common sense and no zest for anything that resembles productive work........The most extraordinary thing about both, especially Obama, is a capacity for self-delusion. Their only real skill is skirting rules, subverting institutions, playing on resentments, destroying lives. For real accomplishment, for building up rather than tearing down, neither could lead a fly to fresh horse dung.
