Barack Obama: Shortstop for the Yankees?

The worship of The One has gotten to the point where it's almost impossible to parody. Dig this.
He's too detached and cerebral . Too deferential to Congress. Too willing to compromise . And he's too much of a law professor and not enough of a commander in chief ... These are some of the qualities for which the president, rightly or wrongly, is criticized. They are also the qualities that make him well suited for another steady job on the federal payroll: Barack Obama, Supreme Court justice.

(H)is education, temperament and experience make him ideally suited to lead the liberal wing of the court.
Has anyone, anywhere at any time ever been rewarded so greatly for so little accomplishment? He was elected president with absolutely no qualifications whatsoever, he was rewarded with the Nobel Peace Prize for only intending to do things and now some WaPo pundit is suggesting he take a seat on the Supreme Court.

Why stop there? Why not shortstop for the Yankees or center for the Lakers? It's insane. This is like watching a spineless parent give in over and over to an increasingly demanding toddler.

His education makes him ideally suited for the Supreme Court?!? And just what education was that? Has anyone seen his transcripts? We do know he has never published anything anywhere. You can bet his transcripts and whatever other artifacts dating back to his school days hide lots of embarassing things or they would have released them by now.

Supreme Court Justice Obama. Right.

You're not seeing the incredible efficiencies of a Justice Obama. Even before a trial has been set, The One has divined that KSM will be found guilty and sentenced to death. Every little dispute in the country could have its day in the Supreme Court when you don't need the time-consuming tasks of preparing and arguing legal briefs.

So get with the program! And by the way, there are some agents headed your way to Mirandize you and prepare a vein for your lethal injection. Apparently the pre-crime unit was stood up while we busy worshiping The One.

He's actually not that smart. When confronted with a question about capital gains taxes during the primaries, he did not appear to understand how lowering the rate increased revenue. Further, even while accepting the premise that it might increase revenue, he was still opposed in the name of "fairness."
His books were ghost written, also. Watch him fumble through any tough interview question without a teleprompter.
I could go on, but it's obvious that while his mien may be that of professor, the caliber of his intellect is not.

B-Daddy states what we all know yet can't spot the sarcasm.

When The One makes the sea levels go down, we will see the sacred carvings in the sea bed and it will all be clear to the non-believers ;)

It's almost sad watching his supporters thrash about in search of a PD for the man now that the realization that he isn't cut out to be CinC is dawning on these same people.

Weren't his professorial and deferential characteristics precisely the reasons why he was to make a good president?

B-Daddy makes a great point. He has not even displayed (or allowed to be revealed) the bedrock intellect that would qualify him to be a decent professor. He just plays one on T.V.
