The Economist on Obama’s general lack of courage. He campaigned on ‘audacity’ and ‘we can’ but it looks like we don’t. Remember you heard it first here on Blue Kennel. I hadn’t quite thought of ‘allergy to antithesis’ in terms of cowardice, but I guess I should. As a trustfunder, I have to be careful about being too judgmental about the behavior of people whose livelihood depends on their reputation. After all, that’s why libel and slander are torts at civil law, as well as being frowned on in the moral law.
