Latest Oped: Flight of the Obamacons

>> My latest oped, on the Flight of the Obamacons, is over at the Washington Times. An excerpt:

Mr. Kmiec and his small band of Obamacons are the new Lotophagi, the “Lotus Eaters” of Homer’s Odyssey. When landing on the territory of the cult-like Lotophagi, Ulysses’s crew was given a flower to eat “which was so delicious that those who ate of it left off caring about home, and did not even want to go back and say what had happened to them, but were for staying and munching lotus with the Lotus Eaters without thinking further of their return.”

Mr. Kmiec and others like him can munch on the flowery prose of Mr. Obama for as long as they want, drifting along on the wafted air of Hope and Change, fooling themselves into forgetting the principles that they once professed to believe. Don’t mourn the Obamacons in their current state, fellow conservatives: We can safely leave them to their happy way which will only bring them heartbreak when they wake up to a world with Supreme Court Justice John Edwards and a whole mouth of grass-stained teeth.
