Michael Gerson just can’t help himself. He is the most sneeringly supercilious, pompous jackinape writing today. And like McCain, he spews most of his anger and contempt at the right. Herewith, a few quotes from his column today: 1) “House Republicans… spout[ed] their ideological purity from atop the ruins…” 2) “most House Republicans with ideological objections had nothing better to propose and no intention to try.” (NOTE: That sentence is a flat out lie. Maybe Gerson the Great is also Gerson the Incredibly Lazy: How could he have missed the detailed proposals offered by the House Repub. Study Committee or the House Repub. Policy Committee?) 3) The consensus [for the bill] included everyone who matters” 4) “it is the political philosophy of Samson: Bring down the entire temple to make a political point.”
No wonder the Bush White House has been such a failure: It was populated by arrogant SOBs like Gerson.
