Peggy Noonan, one of the dinner guests of George Will the other night, has decided that gushing over Obama is not enough. No, she must gush over the entire regime and its symbols.
Today, she writes of seeing these monuments and other Greek temples in Washington and gets teary-eyed:
Flying in, we take the route over the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson, the Tidal Basin: the signs and symbols of the great republic. And you’ve seen it all a thousand times but you can’t stop looking, and you can’t help it, your eyes well. After a minute you realize you must have a moony look on your face, and you lean back.
Yes, the Regime that has bankrupted the county, jailed millions, started wars abroad, and violated every principle of decency, must be worshiped. It is our god, our very sustenance.7:15 am on January 16, 2009 Email Bill Anderson
