Buyer’s Remorse

“Audacity is not one of his qualities, and the hope he inspires in others, he expects others to fulfill. He agrees to watch and approve in case of success, but not to lead and support in the event of a protracted struggle for reform. His courage is real but limited, and not built for loneliness — it demands rings of visible layers of protection with names like Gates, Clinton, Summers, Geithner. His invocations of principle would be better if they were not habitually cheapened by self-praise …”

— David Bromwich, Professor of Literature at Yale

The poor prof got sold a bill of goods by a guy with a good sales pitch, and now he wants his money back.  I’m laughing at his superior intellect.
