Hinderaker’s Delusions

Sometimes you read something that is so utterly contrary to reality that you’re just stunned that any human being could have written it with a straight face. John Hinderaker, one of David Horowitz’ yapping dogs at Powerline, provides a textbook example:

Obama thinks he is a good talker, but he is often undisciplined when he speaks. He needs to understand that as President, his words will be scrutinized and will have impact whether he intends it or not. In this regard, President Bush is an excellent model; Obama should take a lesson from his example. Bush never gets sloppy when he is speaking publicly. He chooses his words with care and precision, which is why his style sometimes seems halting. In the eight years he has been President, it is remarkable how few gaffes or verbal blunders he has committed.

I want some of what he’s smoking.
