This new periodic feature at Slate is absolutely priceless. Slate’s Tim Noah starts things off by mentioning the latest puff piece on Obama, as written in the LATimes. Larry Gordon, staff writer for the LAT, writes:
In [poli-sci professor Roger] Boesche’s European politics class, [classmate Ken] Sulzer said he was impressed at how few notes Obama took. “Where I had five pages, Barry had probably a paragraph of the pithiest, tightest prose you’d ever see. â€¦ It was very short, very sweet. Obviously somebody almost Clintonesque in being able to sum a whole lot of concepts and place them into a succinct written style.”
Just what you wanted to know about a potential president of this country, eh? The rest of the piece reads like an Obama-informercial. I don’t recommend reading it if your diet calls for you to avoid eating or drinking sugary substances.

Update: Herman Cain takes on black liberal ‘leaders’ – and the mediots – who are obsessed with Obama’s race.
