ANN ALTHOUSE CORRECTS THE IGNORANT AND NAIVE:

I had to laugh at the idea that mocking the President began in the year 2001. Bill Clinton was not a figure of fun? The first Bush? Reagan? Carter? Ford? Nixon? LBJ? JFK? Eisenhower? That’s as far back as I personally can remember. I won’t say most people my age have never felt proud of our President. But I never have. And I don’t think that’s so terrible. Don’t worship leaders. Let the mockery flow on. Even if a guy you like who seems pretty good makes it to the White House.

Indeed.

UPDATE: From the comments: “I think the need for Messianic Presidents began when people turned away from God and the church. . . . So many people are looking for a President that they can be excited about. I am looking for a President I can feel calm about.”
