If you've ever wondered why The Corner doesn't have comments, the answer will reveal itself as you read these two comments which Limbaughette and Doughy Fatone culled from the cream of reader e-mails:
Am I the only one who is reminded of the Buffyverse goddess Jasmine when I hear Obama speak? The screaming fans, the empty world-saving optimism, the hive-minded response of the media, the shield-your-eyes glare of the smile.... If we checked his basement, would we find Wesley Wyndham Price in a steel cage?
I was watching American Idol last night, and as usual Paula Abdul was just going on and on about feelings and emotion, and crotchety Simon Cowell was rolling his eyes and telling her to get to the point. It occurred to me that this could be a preview of the election this year if it's Obama and McCain. Paula versus Simon. Who do we want as President?
One can picture the mayhem as Corner readers clashed over whether John McCain was more like Kirk or Picard, and groused that the patently unqualified Avery Brooks and Kate Mulgrew only got their commands because the Soros-dominated United Federation of Planets wants Starfleet Command to lose.
Although that would probably be an improvement, and more grounded in reality than the posts of Cokie Kudlow.
I missed about two weeks of political chatter, but one of the things that got through while I was over there was that a lot of conservatives waited to endorse Romney until the race was already all but over. Very odd. Isn't politics supposed to be all about timing?
