Is Victor Davis Hanson being facetious?

This article headlines NRO.com and praises the dignified professionalism of Obama.

We have always been worried about presidential braggadocio. Just as we came to realize that George Bush’s “bring ’em on” and “dead or alive” were unnecessarily polarizing, so too talk of bringing a gun to a knife fight, or predictions that a supporter would “tear up” a talk-show host, or remarks about “fat cat” bankers are unnecessary presidential provocations.

In other words, with the presidency of Barack Obama, the nation has collectively established at last the proper parameters of political rhetoric and conduct. What was the norm in the past is now recognized as coarse, if not dangerous — and so won’t be repeated in our future.
I agree, but while we don't see cheap macho utterances from the President, the level of debate from his rightwing opposition strikes me as lowest common denominator.
No profanes - sacred
