peak spock speaks

Aspiring novelist Ben Rhodes created narratives for the Obama administration. In a NYT story he once took credit for creating a media echo chamber to push the president’s Iran nuclear deal. But on election night 2016 Rhodes found himself at a loss for words.

Peak Spock Speaks

Now he’s written a book. It’s titled “The World as It Is.” Or “Peak Spock” as Maureen Dowd calls it.

In the book President Obama consoles despondent young Ben by telling him, “There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand on the earth.”

Back on earth Obama says, “Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early.”

To which Matthew Continetti asks, “What was he early for?,” “Fundamentally transforming America?” “The moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow”?

Nope. According to Ms. Dowd, “We just weren’t ready for his amazing awesomeness.”

Ben Rhodes now works for MSNBC. His brother, David Rose, is president of CBS News.
