On Face the Nation this morning, Bob Scheiffer’s round-table consisted of four authors who have written historical and/or political books. One of those authors was Edmund Morris, a Kenyan-born biographer residing in the United States who is obviously a fan of the movie My Cousin Vinny, but not a big fan of Americans.

Matt Schneider at Mediaite has the transcript:

Schieffer: What would Teddy Roosevelt think of today’s politics, Edmund?

Morris: You keep asking these presentist questions Bob. As the immortal Marisa Tomei said in My Cousin Vinny, ‘that’s a bullshit question!’ because you cannot pluck people out of the past and expect them to comment on what’s happening today.
[…]
I see an insular people who are insensitive to foreign sensibilities, who are lazy, obese, complacent and increasingly perplexed as to why [Americans] are losing our place in the world to people who are more dynamic than us and more disciplined.

I’m starting to understand why the writings of Edmund Morris have found their way to Barack Obama’s nightstand.

What does it say about Morris’s judgement that he chooses to live in a country full of fat, lazy, undynamic and undisciplined morons?

Here’s the exchange:
