Steyn and Levin, The World's Stupidest Bloggers
They're playing stupid over at The Corner again. How they manage to stay in character for years at a time, I'll never know.
Re: The New Internationalism? [Mark Steyn]
Yuval, that Obama quote on ceding U.S. thermostat sovereignty to the EU deserves to be savored in full:
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.
"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.
So "leadership" means finding out what other countries want from America and then doing it. Good luck with that.

The New Internationalism? [Yuval Levin]
It looks like Barack Obama has figured out how to get 'them' to like us:
“We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.
We can't? So at what temperature would other countries like me to keep my home, then, and how much should I eat?
There's a winning message.
What Shit Steyn and Mark Levin's even uglier brother or sister fail to comprehend -- either intentionally or due to heredity -- is that Senator Obama is explaining that citizens other countries will not see any reason to discontinue environmentally harmful practices if the United States does not lead by example. And that the American economy can prosper through the development of clean technologies that other countries will want to buy. The Senator's not going to take the extra batteries out of your dildoes, boys.
