Department of Projections

The limbo contest continues among our mainstream politicians. Who will sink the lowest and win the support of the lynch mob? Will it be Madman Giulliani? Mitt "Double-Gitmo" Romney? Fred "The Mole" Thompson? Where Presidential politics is headed is richly indicated by this quote from a safely anonymous White House mouthpiece:

As for Obama, a senior White House official said the freshman senator from
Illinois was "capable" of the intellectual rigor needed to win the presidency
but instead relies too heavily on his easy charm.

"It's sort of like, 'that's all I need to get by,' which bespeaks sort of a
condescending attitude towards the voters," said the official, speaking on
condition of anonymity. "And a laziness, an intellectual laziness."

Especially as applied to a magna cum laude President of Law reviw grad of Harvard law, this is a signal to all those who loves their negroes stereotyped: the GOP is on your side. We're with you, Klansmen!

Of course it is yet another of the many gem-quality projections issued by the Bush team. It may even have superceded the First Vegetable's crusade to get white people into Michigan law school, based doubtless in his sense of injustice at having been legacied into Yale, rather than the community college his transcript merited. Intellectually lazy, indeed.

Conservatism shows itself once again to be not a philosophy, but a projective neurosis. Guilt is to slur as thirst is to mirage.
