. . . excuse us for not joining the adoring throng of elite journalists like David Brooks, who suppose that your well-creased pants suffice to qualify you as an eminent political philosopher.

Major credit to Jack Cashill of American Thinker, who did the vetting that the MSM doesn't do any more. And I just want to remind everyone that I am the founder of Authors Against Obama, organized in May 2008 as a protest by working writers against the sweetheart deal Obama got for his first book.
Even without the ghosting by Ayers, Obama's book deal was bizarre. He initially signed a contract to do a study about American race relations, evidently didn't have the journalistic or research skills to complete that project, and instead decided to turn in a memoir.
A memoir! Just a few years out of law school, and he gets to write a memoir? Memoirs are supposed to be written by people who've actually accomplished something remarkable in life, and graduating law school is a fairly ordinary feat, achieved by thousands of 25-year-olds every year.
Commissioning memoirs by 20-somethings ought to be against the law, with few exceptions. It's an invitation to self-indulgence to permit a person that young to write about himself. You want a book deal before you turn age 30? OK, then either lead the league in RBIs or win the Medal of Honor.
Now we have testimony -- from the First Lady herself, no less -- that President Messiah's memoir was a ghost job? Graduated from Harvard Law, but can't even write his own book?
Ah, but such creases on his pants!
