"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Obama's Deconstruction

My question is what happens to Obama's brain when he goes off his teleprompter? The other day on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart famously joked about his "Heckuva job" remark. "You don't really want to use that phrase, dude." Professor Obama then nervously explicated that this had been an intentional pun. In what parallel universe, except Obama's, does his mealy mouthed defense (in imitation of his equally loathed predecessor) of Larry Summers' execrable record as a towel boy for Wall Street have even the faintest resemblance to a pun?

    Unless, of course, Obama were punning on the execrable job with which Summers did in the American people on behalf of Wall Street...But, this would be downright cruel of Obama to make such a pun as if to wink malevolently at his underling's handiwork...This is imaginable as a Freudian slip only that reveals Obama's true self.
