NEW VOICE COLUMN UP, following the development of the Arrogant Obama theme in rightwing discourse. Though there are laughs along the way, there really isn't much variation -- mainly it's like the sputtering of an old engine that refuses to totally give up, or fluctuations in the vocal strength of The Angriest Dog in the World. Whether it shows mania or admirable stick-to-itiveness on their part (or mine, for that matter) is a matter of perspective.

I did miss a few late entries, like one from the Sipsey Street Irregulars, one of whom approves the ridiculous Jonathan V. Last article about Obama's alleged narcissism, observing that "Narcissistic Personality Disorder is insufficient grounds for claiming a "diminished capacity" (insanity) defense" and rejoicing because "that means he can still be hung after the war crimes trial subsequent to the civil war he starts." Another of the Irregulars, you may remember, once called for true sons of liberty to break the windows of Democrats. One of the problems of pop psychology is that you don't always know the credentials of the practitioners.
