Obama's Morbid Vanity

He said what about 'Mein Kampf' and Obama's life? If he likened one to the other, he has either not read Mein Kampf or anything about Obama's life. Fortunately, the writing in this column is so strained in its pointmaking, and so arcane in its reasoning, that only diehard anti-Obama people will derive even the semblance of a coherent point from it.

And yet you got enough from it to take deep offense. Go figure.
I recently came across Nathaniel Hawthorne's haunting short story "Wakefield," and I couldn't help but notice similarities (and differences) between Wakefield and President Obama.

In "Wakefield," a man tells his wife he is leaving for a short trip, but instead, he moves in to a rental home a block away, where he remains for 20 years, unbeknownst to his wife and friends. At the end of this period, he waltzes right back into his house "as from a day's absence, and became a loving spouse till death."

Perhaps at first Wakefield isn't sure why he left. He could be experiencing a midlife crisis...
