    More Print Even for DC's worshipful press corps, Washington Post scribe Dana Mil bank's latest column was a doozy.

    Hoping to explain why the president appears to be an indecisive waffler, Milbank whelped this whopper:

    Obama's too smart for his own good.

    That's a new one. But is it true -- is Obama too bright to be president?

    Milbank consulted his tea leaves -- and a few social scientists -- to help diagnose Obama's malady:

    Genius in the extreme!

    "I put Obama on the couch," Milbank wrote, "and came away with a reasonably coherent diagnosis: There's too much going on in the poor guy's head."


    AP
    President Barack ObamaObama's crime is that he's "the very model of the complex thinker" -- always weighing the pros and cons of each issue, like a modern-day King Solomon.

    (That is, quite unlike O's troglodyte predecessor, George W. Bush, who was presumably too busy scrawling the Patriot Act on the walls of his cave.)

    Quipped one quack: "What distinguishes Obama is the depth and carefulness of his thinking, which renders him somewhat unfit for politics."

    Well, if not unfit for politics, then self-evidently unsuited to policy-making.

    Still, who can know for sure?

    But what if the prez were to release his long-hidden college transcripts?

    Hmmm . . .

    Oh, Donaaaaald!

    This is the same media that in 1992 had on all the new shows the Chairmen of different committees. But in 94 for the House we suddenly started to hear the phrase "ranking member" and in 96 that was all they had on was "ranking members".

    You do recall why right?

    You see before 1994 the House was firmly in the Democrat camp so Chairmen were all Democrats. After that in order to continue to only display the Democratic view point they had to invite the Senior Democrat who was no longer chairmen but rather the "ranking Member". And in 96 when the Senate fell the same became true for the Senate.

    So remind me , since 2006 how many "ranking Members" have been introduced on these shows?
