Today's Reading Assignment
...from Dorothy Rabinowitz of The Wall Street Journal. She refers to President Obama as "The Alien in the White House," a man completely disconnected from his fellow Americans, save members of his elite, ideological class. A sample paragraph:
A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.
Read the whole thing. Simply brillant.
