The Undoing Of The Storybook Man

Perfect title. He IS a storybook. The problem is that he's all story and no substance. So when pressed, challenged or confronted (which he never really was) he crumbles, because he can't really tell the rest of us his real story and his real principles. He and his handlers have concocted elaborate fairy tales to make him palatable to the mainstream. Only now do we get the opportunity (but really only a handful of them via the debates) where he must stand alone - no prompter, no speech, not facing a fellow like-minded (but less left) liberal, but a truly different world view - that still has all his faculties and has both a political and real-world track record of achievement.

It was the Puss in Boots eyes.

If you've seen the "Shrek" movies or the spin-off cartoon starring the storybook cat voiced by Antonio Banderas, you know what I'm talking about. Whenever Puss in Boots really needs something from someone, he flashes these enormous kitten eyes that melt anyone in their path. Whenever my daughter really wants something, she tries to lay them on me, and I have to say, "Stop trying to give me the Puss in Boots eyes ... you can't have chocolate cake for dinner."

I knew Barack Obama was miserable...
