Far-right Intellectual Violence


Powerline's Assrocket made me perform a spit-take:

Bush never gets sloppy when he is speaking publicly. He chooses his words with care and precision, which is why his style sometimes seems halting. In the eight years he has been President, it is remarkable how few gaffes or verbal blunders he has committed. If Obama doesn't raise his standards, he will exceed Bush's total before he is inaugurated.

Assrocket is f-cking insane. Intellectual violence exemplified. This confounds logic. Not only is the president-elect one of the best orators in modern history, but he's far exceeds President Bush's level of intellectualism and erudition. In other words, a Bush gaffe reveals a lack of intellectual curiosity and -- well, President Bush is a doof. An Obama gaffe is an isolated incident. Nothing more.
