“They do not grasp their essential irrelevance.”

There is an excellent essay at VANITY FAIR written by SARAH ELLISON that discusses the ever-evaporating influence and power of Twitler’s daughter/wife and her husband. It’s very long, so I will just give you a smattering of amuse-bouches to whet your appetite for the entire thing.

“What is off-putting about them,” one political veteran told me, “is they do not grasp their essential irrelevance. They think they are special.”

Back to the Future!

McCainworld, 2013:

After efforts to pressure the Government in Sudan over Darfur failed again in the U.N. Security Council, the United States, acting in concert with a newly formed League of Democracies, applied stiff diplomatic and economic pressure that caused the government of Sudan to agree to a multinational peacekeeping force, with NATO countries providing logistical and air support, to stop the genocide that had made a mockery of the world’s repeated declaration that we would “never again” tolerant such inhumanity. Encouraged by the success, the League is now occupied with using the economic power and prestige of its member states to end other gross abuses of human rights such as the despicable crime of human trafficking.–John McCain, May 15, 2008
