>Critic Harold Bloom said this of Walt Whitman: "I would go so far as to nominate him as Abraham Lincoln's only rival for greatest American"
Is this guy fucking serious? Lincoln was a dictator, murderer and set a new low for the presidency. He deserved to be shot. Walt Whitman was a not very exceptional American poet.
Is this what qualifies as an intellectual these days? These two as the greatest Americans that ever lived? Can't wait til this guy dies and just becomes completely forgotten and marginal.
