The corpse of Harry Truman has reportedly been so pissed off by Obama's tongue-tied, puny-spirited defense of his first two highly accomplished years in office, that it dragged itself across the country and showed up at the White House last night. "Goddammit," it said. "What's the matter with you? Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything. Say: 'It's plain hokum. If you can't convince 'em, confuse 'em. It's an old political trick. But this time it won't work.' Say: 'To hell with them. When history is written, they will be the sons of bitches — not I.'
