Poultry politics

In my American Thinker blog post yesterday, the basic conclusion was: Obama is a chicken.

Charles Krauthammer, in his Washington Post article today, comes to a different conclusion: Obama is a preening rooster.

Americans are beginning to notice Obama's elevated opinion of himself. There's nothing new about narcissism in politics. Every senator looks in the mirror and sees a president. Nonetheless, has there ever been a presidential nominee with a wider gap between his estimation of himself and the sum total of his lifetime achievements?


MORE: Let’s welcome Kathleen Parker to the fun, basically calling Obama a hen-pecking candidate in her National Review article:

Barack Obama's levity-free reaction to the now-famous New Yorker cartoon leaves one reluctantly wondering: Is he humor-challenged? Perchance, does he take himself too seriously for a nation of wits and wags?

So soaring has been Obama's rhetoric and so dazzling his smile that we've missed the possibility that the Illinois senator is less the lanky rock star and more the purse-lipped church lady, clucking his tongue in disapproval of the chuckling masses.
