Curious, but not surprising, rage

Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal has another great swipe at President Obama. See Obama's Curious Rage. I find the presidential rage curious, but not surprising at all. People who enjoy standing on the moral high ground but refuse to get their hands dirty often become enraged at seemingly large and evil targets who as a matter of fact rarely dare to fight back.

So people are pissed at Google's wifi-equipped shuttle bus, incensed by Twitter's lack of female representation on its board, appalled by Mozilla's gay-marriage-opposing CEO, and shocked to find Microsoft is still monopolizing the PC market. This rage is no different from how the Chinese government's crackdown on foreign companies is perceived around the world, but many people find it justifiable. How absurd! 

Grow up. Go make something of yourself and stop fighting the easy wars.
