Kathleen Parker: Hey, This Obama Fellow Isn't All That Impressive

Et tu Kathleen?

In keeping with his campaign promise to talk to America's enemies without precondition, Barack Obama plans to turn his charms on Burma's military junta. Slowly, we're beginning to understand what hope and change were all about. Translation: Sure hope this change works.

Sorry, I have to interrupt here to ask a quick question...Who is this "we" you speak of Mrs. Parker?

Many of us actually spent the last campaign warning about Obama's lack of experience and dangerous naïveté.

Others spent the last campaign in the dreamy spell of Mr. Wonderful and warning about Sarah Palin's dangerous diction or something.

Anyway...

It may be too soon to pass judgment on Obama's new foreign policy strategy, but early returns on his gamble that talking is the best cure are less than reassuring. Each time Obama extends a hand to one of the world's anti-American despots, he is rewarded with an insult (Venezuela's Hugo Chavez) or, perhaps, a missile display (North Korea and Iran)

One may view these episodes as diminishing America's status or as a tolerable annoyance -- sort of the way Dobermans view toy poodles. At some point, the big dog reminds the little yapper of his place. Unfortunately, the American commander in chief is a cat in a dog-eat-dog world.

Obama isn't even a tough, feral cat. No he's a fancy cat that only wants to eat the expensive kind of cat food and strut around demanding attention.

In the great scheme of things Kathleen Parker is a non-entity but she spent the last year and a half telling us stupid conservatives how, well, stupid we are and that she, Brooks and the gang knew better.

Now suddenly she realizes that Obama isn't exactly what she thought she was and is going to pretend it was a mistake everyone made. Well it wasn't. Plenty of us were smart enough to see this disaster coming from a hundred miles away and we shouldn't let her forget it.
