This is kind of awesome. Jonah Goldberg, 12:15 PM:
All I have to say is that if it was deliberate — and I really, really doubt it was — then that is the most substantive proof so far that Obama’s youthful arrogance is getting the better of him. The text message ploy on its own was kind of dumb. But if it was a way to tweak Clinton, it was beyond self-indulgent. And the fact that the message went out at 3:00 AM at all is a sign the whole thing was too clever by half.
Jonah Goldberg, 1:29 PM:
You know what? Even if it was a mistake, some grownup over there should have said “3:00 AM? You know what they’ll say, right? Don’t do it at 3:00 AM, it’ll seem like a juvenile jab at Hillary.” Instead, it seems that it didn’t occur to anyone or someone said, “3:00 AM, hah! Take that Hillary!”
So let’s recap. If the text was deliberately sent at 3:00 AM, Obama sucks. If it wasn’t deliberately sent at 3:00 AM, Obama sucks.
It is almost like there is nothing Obama can do to make Jonah happy!
