maha agrees with me that the current Republican leadership is suffering from Peter Pan syndrome:
If there’s one thing I’m sure of about our President, it’s that he has never encountered his limitations. He is as oblivious to his limitations as a spoon is oblivious to soup. He’s oblivious to his dark side; the dragon has been bought off; he mistakes his own inhumanity for virtue. He’s still a boy, in other words. And I believe the same is true of Dick and Rummy.
And while we’re on the subject of Big Famous Bloggers who agree with me, Matt Yglesias also thinks that Little Lord Pontchartrain’s sheer stupidity is a real problem.
Well, they never grew up, in a Piaget-ian sense of the term, as in “arrested emotional development”…
I wouldn’t know about the Peter Pan angle. But a good case could be made for Pinocchio with the long nose.
