Another reason I bow to the awesomeness of Bill Whittle

So, apparently Pravda-on-Hudson's wannabe snarkmeister Maureen Dowd wrote a column favorably comparing Barack Obama to Mr. Spock and various members of his cabinet to the characters in Star Trek. Star Trek aficionado Bill Whittle artfully shows here why the Barack as Spock comparison is not nearly as flattering as the intellectuals wish it was. 12:55 of pure video gold. Yes, Bill Whittle is as much the man on video as he is in print. You need to WATCH IT.

"Because he's smarter than any one of these people, the elitist thinks he's smarter than all of them combined. And this is the fatal danger with putting intellectuals in positions of power."
