Irony of the Day

Via Andrew Sullivan, from Mark Steyn, who was a proud member of the Bush administration, comes this little gem:

What is fascinating about the age of Obama, and about what Senator Fulbright was saying, is what I call, “the persistence of the monarchical urge” — two and a third centuries after George III was given the boot, there are a lot of people who want a strong, charismatic leader who knows what’s best for you. I don’t. I like citizen legislators, and I don’t regard the president of the United States as “my leader.”

Yeah, okay.
