What the?

I’ve never heard of Frank Rich up until this point,  and I wish it could have stayed that way.

Many Americans were more eagerly anticipating Steve Jobs’s address in San Francisco on Wednesday morning than the president’s that night because they have far more confidence in Apple than Washington to produce concrete change.

Which might be due to the fact that companies like Apple, that have at least one competitor, tend to be more competitive than companies that the government is paying to fail.  Thus, they make progress.

Just look at how a sharp public slap provoked Justice Alito, threw a spotlight on the court’s dubious jurisprudence and sparked an embarrassing over-the-top hissy fit on the right.

He is aware how stupid this sounds, right?  The courts decision just removed the restriction on companies’ freedom of speech.  And there wasn’t nearly as much of a hissy fit on the right about Obama’s childish remarks as there was on the left about the court’s decision in the first place.
