English majors on the POTUS

barack-read

Now that the political press, the historians, the economists, and the plumbers have all had a go at the new president, I guess it’s only natural that the English majors should weigh in:

– Zadie Smith says one key to Obama’s success as an orator is his ability to speak in a variety of voices.

– Garth Risk Hallberg at the Millions diagrams a Presidential Sentence.

Next week, geologists explain what soil samples collected from Obama’s loafers tell us about his governing style.
