Z. Dwight Billingsly writes in the St Louis Dispatch of his plan to survive the Obama years. He makes a couple of points that are worth quoting: (HT: Gateway Pundit)
Bill Kristol, writing in The Weekly Standard, reminded me that every 16 years we get a Democrat president with no experience in national security or international affairs who’s elected after Republican presidents have made and kept America safe: After Eisenhower, we got Kennedy; after Nixon/Ford, we got Carter; after Reagan/Bush, we got Clinton.

That’s not to say that Obama’s election doesn’t come with a couple of interesting side effects. For example, henceforth no black man in America may be called unqualified for any job that he might seek, no matter his prior education or experience level.

Just offer hope to the profession and promise change from all those stuffy theorems that have given the discipline its structure over the years, and you’re in.
Ouch. Here’s the link.
