I really enjoyed Obama’s response to the Republicans who decided to put their names on a letter to Iran. Conan O’Brien once compared Bill Clinton with The Road Runner, the way that Republicans would try to catch him and end up destroying themselves in the end. I actually think Obama merits this comparison much more than Clinton, as Clinton was self-destructive in many obvious ways. The Republicans are thrashing about climbing over each other to tarnish Obama, and their actions just make Obama look like the adult in the room. I mean, think about what the Republicans did: They reached out to the Ayatollah (The Ayatollah!) in an effort to weaken our Commander in Chief! That is not only unprecedented, but batshit insane! It is so insane that the remarks by the Ayatollah actually seem more reasonable than the Republicans. I would like to be mad at this action, but it is so self-defeating that it seems more like a strange gift. It is true that it is long enough before the next election that it may be forgotten by then. But if it is not, and dear god I hope it is not, it will certainly be a plague on their house.
