“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Obama's First Pitch. Why Does he need a Glove With No Batter?

Obama can't throw a baseball. Compare his Happy the Clown act to the grace of George Bush, wearing a NYFD jacket, no hat, no glove, straight down the pike, in the glove, following a dignified entrance and then making an exit.


  1. His first year, he one hopped the ball to the catcher. This year, he wanted to make sure that didn't happen again, so he looped it almost over the catcher's head. Oh well, he (Obama) admitted that he never played organized ball. I would venture to say that he never played at all.

    Oh well. No BFD!

  2. You notice that the pitch was far to the left.
