Obama's waffled grievously on too many substantive issues, but now
and then we see the sharp dry candor that appealed to so many way back
when - and that we wish he'd get back to. In an interview on his new nuclear policy with
ABC's slimey, clueless George Stephanopoulos, Obama was hilariously
dismissive on the subject of a pointless Sarah Palin critique that the
Washington Monthly's Steven Benen called "an idiotic quote from a dim-witted
former half-term governor of a small
state" – raising the real issue of why any so-called journalist would bring it up in the first place.
"The last I checked, Sarah
Palin's not much of an expert on nuclear issues." - President Obama,
who showed remarkable restraint by not adding, "or any other issues."
