Among votaries of the Leftist faith, the name "Julia" is a venerated one -- not quite on a par with Marx or Lenin, but nevertheless highly respected. In 1973, the infamous Stalinist virago Lillian Hellman wrote, in her memo "Pentimento," about a woman friend, Julia, who had been active in the Austrian Resistance against tha Nazis, and whom she -- Hellman -- had assisted, thereby turning Hellman, with a few strokes on her keyboard, into an anti-fascist heroine. The only problem is that it never happened. Hellman had overheard the story fom a friend and used it to fabricate a tale of her own non-existent anti-Nazi heroics. This, of course, is the same Lillian Hellman of whom Mary McCarthy famously said: "Every word she writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the.' " I wonder if Obama -- who as a Certified Global Leftist surely worships at the shrine of Lillian Hellman -- "borrowed" the name from her to give a cachet to his own fabrication.
