This must be the most vapid, smug, and inane commentary that has come out of the Village in a long time — and that’s a high bar. My personal favorite is Helperin’s blaming of Obama for Republican obstructionism on the stimulus. And who can blame him: after all, the President only agreed to make 40% of the stimulus tax cuts when direct spending would have been more effective. In the dictionary next to Dunning-Kruger Effect, there’s a picture of Halperin.
It’s just a waste of time to Fisk the whole thing. But impress your friends! How many egregious cliches, obsession with trivia, and smarmy whines can you find on any page?
