Mad Men

As Republicans finally face the stark realization that they’re going to be voting for a really crappy candidate in November, be on the lookout for some virulent flare-ups of Obama Derangement Syndrome.

Jonah Goldberg is far from the wingnuttiest wingnut in the blogosphere, but this take is truly bizarre:

President Obama’s State of the Union address was disgusting. . . .

He said of the military: “At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, they exceed all expectations. They’re not consumed with personal ambition. They don’t obsess over their differences. They focus on the mission at hand. They work together. Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach.”

That is disgusting.

What Obama is saying, quite plainly, is that America would be better off if it wasn’t America any longer. He’s making the case not for American exceptionalism, but for Spartan exceptionalism.


I think Mr. Goldberg could use some professional help.
