Sowell on Obama

“The problem with clever people is that they don’t know when to stop being clever — and Senator Obama is a very clever man, perhaps ‘too clever by half’ as the British say.”
Thomas Sowell

Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed is the book I most often recommend to anyone wanting to understand the liberal worldview. What Sowell documents so perfectly in the book is the moral and intellectual arrogance — the “too clever by half” factor — of people who’ve convinced themselves that they are infinitely superior to ordinary mortals like us.
