What happens when you prop up an empty suit?

Once people see it for what it really is, reality can get ugly.  (But we’re all just racist.  Thanks, Michelle.)

 Mort Zuckerman, writing in his own rag: 

The hope that fired up the election of Barack Obama has flickered out, leaving a national mood of despair and disappointment. Americans are dispirited over how wrong things are and uncertain they can be made right again. Hope may have been a quick breakfast, but it has proved a poor supper. A year and a half ago Obama was walking on water. Today he is barely treading water. Then, his soaring rhetoric enraptured the nation. Today, his speeches cannot lift him past a 45 percent approval rating.

His soaring rhetoric, or yours?  (I know, I know, all presidents have speechwriters.  But … members of the press collaborating, too?)

How interesting, though, that he can’t stand his own empty suit now.

(And how interesting is the result of a google image search for “empty suit”?  I guess they haven’t had time to scrub it yet.)
