Steyn delivers a number of gems.
On Michael Bloomberg:
This pompous twerp, Bloomberg, who I think has come to embody the particular stupidity of the American ruling class, because itâ€™s a very parochial kind of stupidity. Presuming to lecture his knuckle-dragging, moronic constituents on how they donâ€™t apparently understand the United States Constitution? Itâ€™s nothing to do with that. There are all kinds of things that are Constitutional and are legal, but are not necessarily appropriate.
A lot of people think heâ€™s going to be a one-term president. The interesting thing is whether heâ€™s going to be a one-termer, as you say, by choice, like a James K. Polk. In other words, he figures heâ€™s going to do what he needs to do in four years, and then heâ€™s going to move on. And I said sometime last year, I think, that what I found odd about him is that heâ€™s the first American president I can think of who gives the impression that the job is too small for him. …
And heâ€™s just kind of killing time in it until something more commensurate with his abilities comes along. And given that his entire view of the world, as John Bolton likes to say, heâ€™s the post-American president for a post-American world, the idea that he would be focused on reelection in the way a conventional politician such as Bill Clinton is, I think is not really part of his thinking. I think heâ€™s much rather utterly transform the United States, and then swan off after a couple of years, and go be a secretary-general of the United Nations with enhanced powers, or whatever racket has been cooked up for him in those years.
