At American Digest, Thursday, Obama was compared to Melville's character Ahab in Moby Dick; whereupon, I left a comment:

An insightful literary analogy.
As the lamented Dr. Sanity has explained, Obama is a selfless narcissist. As I would say, he'll do everything conceivable to help the people, no matter how many actual persons he has to hurt or kill along the way. (For instance, "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.") That his policies might actually be deleterious would not, then, seem to be relevant to him — so long as he gets to live his own life quite comfortably, that is.

At neo-neocon, yesterday, there was speculation whether the liberal enchantment with Obama is coming to an end, even in the mainstream media; whereupon, I left a comment:

The handwriting was on the wall the day Obama called Palin a pig in lipstick. That is exactly what he did, but everybody in mainstream media pretended he didnít do so. We learned that day ó and, perhaps more significantly, Obama learned that day ó that his comrades in mainstream media would let him get away with anything. Not only let him get away with anything, but help him get away with it.
The blinders and blinkers may fall from a few liberalsí eyes, as they are already, but I donít think the herd will ever be driven off course. Following on AVIís remarks, however, one thing that might spook the herd would be actions by the Obamists that visibly and seriously hurt liberals where they live, provided that they can connect the Obama cause with the deleterious effect.
