Or, how to make a delicious Dog Days confection using leftover CW and some lowfat punditism. To be fair, I haven't read the piece because for the last month WaPo has been crashing my browser. Can't say I've missed it.

The "misunderestimate" business was, IIRC, excuse #3 in the "sure, he sounds like an utterly incurious, 70th percentile, idiot son of privilege, but he can't be because he's President" sweepstakes. So when, exactly, did it turn out to be true? When the public rallied around his sorry ass in a time of crisis? When he squandered global goodwill on international adverturism? When that international adventure turned to shit? His masterful handling of his domestic agenda, perhaps? There's a clear distinction between astonishment at how corrupt and dishonest his administration could be and underestimating his political acumen. The latter's still going strong.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
