Only Simon Cowell Can Save Us Now

If you’re searching for a single metaphor that can capture the presidency of Barack Obama so far, think of the uplifting experience so many of us had when we first watched the Susan Boyle video, and then take all those factors, the homely looks, the scorn, the absysmal expectations, the smug certainty of a ridiculous outcome, all followed by the shock of that gifted voice--then imagine all those factors exactly reversed.

Obama proved to me once and for all today that he is the anti-Boyle.

Speaking of Susan Boyle, get a load of her singing “Cry Me a River” if you haven’t already. Maybe it will make you feel better.

Get today's bad taste out of your mouth.
