Andrew Sullivan posted this blather from Jonah Goldberg:
...perhaps there’s no mystery at all, and Obama’s problems are the same problems Democrats always have at the presidential level: He’s an elitist. Oh, I know. Upon reading that, some liberal spluttered herbal chai tea from her nose at the injustice of this whole elitist canard, and the earnest Ivy League interns at some liberal magazine have burst into laughter, offering the appropriate bons mots from Balzac at the preposterousness of such a suggestion, saying: 'Don’t you conservatives understand? Democrats care about the little guy. They’re on the side of the proletariat — I mean workers — and as Obama has so eloquently put it, if the workers would only stop clinging to their silly sky god and guns, they’d understand that,'Jonah Goldberg, NRO.
As Sullivan puts it, "Bon mots from Balzac?"
That's like pithiness from James. Or fluff from Hemingway. Or witticisms from Pound. We could go all night with this.
