WRAITH YOU SAY?

If one does not read author, military historian, Victor Davis Hanson on a regular basis, one should start.

Today’s Washington journalists are like J. R. R. Tolkien’s ring wraiths, petty lords who wanted a few shiny golden Obama rings — only to end up as shrunken slaves to the One.

The Bob Woodward/Ron Fournier/Lanny Davis psychodrama is another small reminder that the Obama administration continues to assume that the press should be little more than a veritable Ministry of Truth. Its proper duty is to serve the White House and promote the progressive agenda of Barack Obama. Any were considered suspect who questioned whether those exalted ends should really be achieved by any means necessary — but they were so few and far between that it mattered little.

This observation was made here this week. But it’s nice to see Crede, ut Intelligas sharing like turf with the likes of someone like Professor Hanson.
