News Flash

Fareed Zakaria, in the WaPo:

Most of the business leaders I spoke to had voted for Barack Obama. They still admire him. Those who had met him thought he was unusually smart. But all think he is, at his core, anti-business. When I asked for specifics, they pointed to the fact that Obama has no business executives in his Cabinet, that he rarely consults with CEOs (except for photo ops), that he has almost no private-sector experience, that he's made clear he thinks government and nonprofit work are superior to the private sector.

To which the benighted non-members of the "educated class" can but respond, "Well, duh. It took you this long to figure that out?"

Perhaps it's time for Zakaria to add "Master of the Obvious" to his extensive Q.V.

UPDATE: Per Lloyd Grove, light also begins to dawn in, of all places, Aspen, including, of all people, MechaStreisand.
