I tend to avoid the political back and forth, but when someone manages to make fine literary allusion while belittling their foes, I take notice. I'll be surprised if you can't guess who Kevin Drum is discussing when he says:

"I swear, he can hardly open his mouth these days without saying something so dumb and tin-eared it just makes your jaw drop. It's like reading the second half of "Flowers for Algernon."

And yes, the quote is ridiculous enough to warrant the comparison.
