A Matter Of Opinion

Dumb Bombs

We have “Smart Bombs”, but what about “Dumb Bombs”? How about we compile a compendium of articles, opeds, columns and quotes that reflect less-than-intelligent thinking?

(Now, some might say “Smart Bombs” already does that. Duly noted.)

Here’s an article (via Kevin Drum) from the Wall Street Journal that posits the notion that Barack Obama may be too fit to be president. Not because he’s brilliant and overqualified, but because he’s fit (some — me! — might even say skinny).

Can it really be the case that Obama will turn off some voters because his very presence reminds them that they’re overweight? Bush is fit. Why didn’t that hurt him? So was Kerry.

Anyway, put your nominees in Comments and if there are enough, I’ll put together a Dumb Bombs feature.
