George Will’s Sunday column ends with his negative appraisal of everything President Obama has ever done or been, or might be in the future by insisting that “Obama’s vanity is a wonder of the world that never loses its power to astonish.” Will’s criticizing the president’s vanity is way past the pot calling the kettle black. It’s more like a prideful (but always infallible) pope criticizing another religious leader for being dogmatic and insisting on his own way.
It is wonderful to be an accomplished wordsmith. It’s just not the same as being God.
