Some of you may have noticed that during today's speech at Georgetown University, Big Guy talked a lot about pillars. He loves pillars. He has pillars for the economy, pillars for health care policy, pillars for Wall Street reform, pillars for his government reform plan, which largely entails building more pillars for government buildings.
There are two reasons that Big O likes to talk about pillars. First, his speechwriters are lazy and the pillars are an easy way to structure a speech that Big Guy could read off my screens in his sleep. If he didn't need to pay really close attention to the screens, that is.
Second, with all these pillars he's erecting, he's going to end up with a really neat monument to himself. Every great presidential monument has pillars, and he wants his to have the most ... and a really good snack bar and gift shop.
