Victim in Chief

Ann Coulter has a new book out and it makes a great point about one of the strangest perversions of modern culture. In less than two generations we've gone from a society which celebrates the guy who scores the winner in the FA Cup Final to one that celebrates the guy cruelly robbed of his chance to play for Chelsea just because he's a paraplegic.

The ultimate in liberal victimhood worship though is the Obamamessiah. The left spent years fantasising about Bush being assassinated, but as soon as The One was elected, they switched to Obama murder fantasises. Of course. Just because their loony messiah is the most powerful man on Earth doesn't mean he still can't claim victimhood, albeit pre-emptively.
