I’ll see your hyperbole and raise you an absurdity
We all remember John Hinderaker’s famous Presidential blowjob:
It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can’t get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.
Today, Hugh Hewitt ups the ante, with a little prostate massage thrown in for good measure:
George Bush has already been president during a time of “hot” war longer than any president in American history, and despite the enormous strains and a first-of-its-kind political opposition at home, he has persevered in the course of victory. I hope you and other critics eventually awake to the fact that Bush has done what needed to be done, that the mistakes he has made are like the mistakes all presidents make in all wars, and that we were fortunate to have him in the Oval Office on 9/11 and in the job through the first extremely trying years of the long war.
Hewitt is so close to landing the George W. Bush library job that he can taste it. After all, when it comes to glossing things over, he’s got the chops.
