Obama's Skin

Great stuff in here from Roger Kimball. 

The whole piece is great, but I especially liked this bit:

“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet,” his promise was merely “to help you and your family.” Merely."

"The real choice is between boundless but unrealizable utopian promises and more modest but realizable promises that take account of human and economic realities. Behind that choice is another choice: the choice between the limited but real freedom offered by the rule of law and its often tedious processes and that virtue-saturated utopia the Left keeps promising us."

Fantastic paragraph. That is the upcoming American election in a nutshell.
