Our old PNAC pal Leon Wieseltier has been watching Barack Obama and doesn't like what he sees:

...I have been pondering his remarks about foreign policy in the ensuing campaign and I do not detect the hardness I seek.... He seems averse to the hurtful, expensive, traditional, unedifying stuff.

Hmmm ... Wieseltier wants a candidate with more "hardness"? Less "averse to the hurtful"?

Yup, I guess it is the same Leon Wieseltier who, a few years ago, famously lavished praise on a memoir about anal sex.


(More on the Wieseltier essay from Spencer Ackerman and Ezra Klein.)
