Two great pieces at Commentary for you to read.
First, Jennifer Rubin very correctly assesses the weird world liberals occupy, making two salient points the Czar has often made: (1) conservatives understand liberals very well whereas liberals cannot comprehend conservatives, and (2) its actually liberals who live in a very small-minded, identity-driven collective, and conservatives tend to have a wider variety of friends and acquaintances.
If that cheers you up, her whole post will delight.
Also, Jennifer Rubin tells you what you already knew: Obama hates being in the military. Commander-in-chief? Not his thing. But read why, and read how it got this way, and as tough as that is for him, how tough its going to get in November. Excellent writing.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
