If Only the Voters Were Jolly

Obama to fatcats: "Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama told the assembled Democrats, who paid $15,200 a person to attend. "And the country is scared."

Aldous Huxley, "Brave New World": "I don't understand anything," she said with decision, determined to preserve her incomprehension intact. "Nothing. Least of all," she continued in another tone "why you don't take soma when you have these dreadful ideas of yours. You'd forget all about them. And instead of feeling miserable, you'd be jolly. So jolly,"

It's good to see him admit he hasn't been thinking clearly. Admitting you have a problem is the first step.

True, true. But when the first step is "I admit a meteor is about to hit me," moving on to Step 2 can be problematic.
