George Will, Commissar Barry, and Unicorns

George Will recently opened up his weekly column with this:
Barack Obama, the first president shaped by the celebratory culture in which every child who plays soccer gets a trophy and the first whose campaign speeches were his qualification for the office, perhaps should not be blamed for thinking that saying things is tantamount to accomplishing things, and that good intentions are good deeds. So, his presidency is useful after all, because it illustrates the perils of government run by believers in magic words and numbers.
This opening got me to thinking about Commissar Barry and his magic unicorns.
