Where I Don't Defend Evan Thomas

After hearing about this it was tempting to cut Evan Thomas of Newsweek some slack--

Why? Because not too long ago I called Obama a sort of Klaatu character, as if sent here from the great beyond to scold the children of earth. Thomas opined similarly:
– his shtick is he's the teacher. He's the teacher. He is going to say, ‘now, children, stop fighting and quarreling with each other.’ And he has a kind of a moral authority that he – he can – he can do that-
The reason he gets no slack is because he seems to actually believe it. This isn't just a cold analytical political comparison, he's clearly a twin son of different mothers.

Not surprising Matthews let the comments pass without pointing out that if Obama were a god he wouldn't need a teleprompter. If he were a god the rising price of gas would have been halted months ago via his magic wand. And deity bows to no one, much less a Saudi monarch. People would be bowing to him. Oh wait....be healed, Brian!!. Maybe he is.

By the way, when does the official outrage over Bush causing gas prices to rise kick in?
