American Idol

With the next weeks certain to bring a foreign policy crisis, and the next months a likely economic crisis, the death of Antonin Scalia is a reminder of how few degrees of freedom the old order has left. With the presidential races now dominated in both parties by outsiders; with actual war drums beating on the international scene; with domestic politics galvanized around a fight over the Supreme Court, the inflexibility of Barack Obama himself will soon become the main issue. It's drained the system of the last degrees of flex.

He is like a great, deaf, stone god whose acolytes must either decide to continue worshiping or flee for their lives. His immobility is a great source of comfort to the Leftist faithful who see in their high priest the inevitability of the progressive project even as thunder and lightning gather over the temple. But it is also the source of unease among those who suspect the stone is just stone; that there is no there, there. Events will soon put his fitness as Leader of the Free World to the test even as he finds himself under pressure domestically. | PJ Media

Your Say

Like the mysterious Moai of Easter Island, Obama is a figure of worship. His stone-like immovability on economic, law enforcement, and national security issues are thought by his cultish followers to be God-like. To me the beliefs of both he and his followers are as veiled in mystery as the actual stone statues on Easter Island. They make no sense, no sense at all.
