Then again, it is beyond obnoxiousness, especially by means of judges whose powers are designed to be limited, for denizens of Hyde Park and New York’s Upper West Side by way of the Harvard dean’s office, to even pretend to have special insight into, and power to determine, what is in the best interests of those Kagan called “the despised and disadvantaged.” The Obamites are the people who savaged “Joe the Plumber,” and this is the president who while campaigning claimed that a preference for limited government was merely the province of those who “get bitter [and] cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Barack Obama posing as the representative of the people against the powerful is like Tiger Woods feigning virginity while crusading against promiscuity.
