More of the cult of personality which passes for political journalism today. Perhaps @Kottke genuinely thought he was breaking some kind of news barrier with this post … But if Michael Lewis has indeed managed to tease something out of Obama that we still did not know after one and a half election campaigns and nearly a full term in office, Kottke is burying the lede: the journalist is the superhuman we should be told about. But perhaps it is unfair to single out the blogger; today all the long-form high-brows (The Browser, Longreads, The Byliner) tipped us in the direction of the same Vanity Fair feature. Cute profile, Barack. Pity you can’t tell us why you just don’t seem to give a flying shit about habeas corpus.
