    Sounds like he was watching A Clockwork Orange during an LSD trip and decided to turn his experience into a blog.

    Future generations are going to read all about what the first black president had to go through, all the wild accusations and conspiracy theories and abuse, and it's going to be completely bewildering to them. Sad that it's so understandable and commonplace to us now.

    ...because every urban gang leader's dream is to obey the orders of the occupant of the White House....

    I think Card has been observing carefully the career of John Stossel. It's really too bad he gave up on writing as a career just when he was beginning to get popular, although maybe that's the reason he's getting popular now.

    In any case, **** him. He wrote one really good book, IMO, Wyrms and everything else has been a bad imitation of Heinlein. RAH knew the art of how to make a character nearly superhumanly smart without making him someone whose picture is next to "smug asshole" in the dictionary, Card doesn't.
