Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

Any idea why the Weekly Standard has a rather, um, glowing feature of Barack Obama is this week's edition?

The Economist has a thought:

My hypothesis that conservative writers have been distracted lo these many months by the need to come up with innovative arguments against Hillary Clinton. They are out of practice at criticising Mr Obama. Consider this article aa bit of evidence. The comment that Mr Obama looks like "a cross between Denzel Washington and Alfred E. Neuman" must be a dig at the fact that his ears stick out, but that's about as rough as it gets.
This seems, if not untrue, then kind of superficial to me.
