King of fools, Czech mate
Back in April 2010, a quote attributed to a Czech newspaper, Prager Zeitung, began to circulate among conservatives. Search for this gem in the Prager Zeitung web site -- in German -- and you will come up with zero results.
It makes no difference who wrote this. Czech or not, it sums up our situation all too well, and seems all the more perceptive after yesterday's disaster.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
