Give me an "O"!

   Writing a serious analysis of Andrew Sullivan's latest Newsweek opinion piece/parody would be akin to a sports writer scrutinizing a chant performed by the opposing team's cheerleading squad.  But I cannot overlook this line from the foreign policy verse of Sullivan's cheer regarding the President's role in the successful bin Laden raid:
He even personally ordered the extra helicopters that saved the mission.
Almost immediately upon reading this, I had a vision of the iconic photo of Michael Dukakis in the tank, but with President Obama's face superimposed over that of Dukakis.  I intend no disrespect to President Obama or his constitutional position as Commander in Chief, but if we are truly relying on a former professor, community organizer, and Senator with absolutely no military experience for the success of the special operations of our most elite fighting units, we are in more trouble than anyone previously imagined.
