And if only he was half as intelligent as his father.
Alas, he’s a moron.

After his shocking realization that just because someone is pompous enough to write two autobiographies before accomplishing anything significant with their life doesn’t mean they are presidential he re-affirmed his presidential pick (H/T Hot Air). But, of course, his reassurance does little more than insult John McCain and Sarah Palin as well as heaping a heavy load of absurdly naive hope on Barack Obama. I guess you can’t teach an old fool… well, anything:
I’ll cop to getting Obama wrong, though it seems a bit early to give up on him entirely; who knows, perhaps he’ll view this egregious budget misstep as a “teachable moment.”
or, in other words, Buckley still thinks Obama isn’t a hard core liberal ideologue…
Our choice, last fall, was between an angry 73 year old with a legislative record far from consistently conservative, who nominated as his running mate a know-nothing religious extremist; on the other side was an appealing, thoughtful man who–for a brief shining moment–seemed to be more than the sum of his ideological parts.
If I had to vote all over again, I’d pull the same lever. Maybe I’m obtuse. Or maybe I just haven’t yet entirely given up on the old audacity of hope.
Yea… I can’t stand this guy. Not in the least.
