Irony Is Reborn Every Night

Only to have its liver eaten the next day by FAUX Nooze:

Judy Miller criticizes Diane Sawyer for being "too busy blogging and net-Twittering" to properly question Pelosi

"Seems like kind of a kid gloves interview if you watch the whole thing."

FAUX is home base for candidates who can't even take questions from the likes of Katie Couric. This is the network the rest of our media takes its cues from, people. Be sad. Be very sad. The media narrative already is "Obama and the Democrats moved too far to the left".

Interior Department employees referred to the "Third Bush Term". How could it be any more right-wing, without just putting Exxon and B.P. in charge, officially?

Larry Summers and Tim Geithner replaced Bush's crack economics advisor, Hank Paulson. Harsh blow for Wall Street! Anything less than hiring Larry Kudlow will show that that the Marxists are still in charge.

David "The Dean" Broder has already suggested that invading Iran is a solution to our economic problems. The war that would pay for itself has cost us $3 trillion and counting. But we're just going to keep making war until we find the Magical Unicorn!

I'm sure Fred Hiatt will chime in shortly, writing if we only had more tax cuts for the rich, and got rid of these silly expensive programs like "Social Security" and "Medicare", all will be blue skies again.

Now let's click for our medicine, where we'll learn it's all Rachel Maddow's fault.

That is not what he's saying- he's saying "what hope do we have for a liberal brand if the only visible identifiable liberals don't necessarily always do their homework or play at blog-style arguments."

He's right. A world where it becomes accepted that somehow MSNBC and FN are two sides of the same coin, or where the personalities on MSNBC can be tarred as hacks at any sort of level, or as reactionarily partisan, the side of good cannot win.

Hands off my Medicare & Social Security!

And don't touch me there, either!

I donut agree, Mr. Pinko.

The biggest branding problem that we have is a Democratic Party that has as its claim to fame "slightly less corporatist than the other guys, maybe".

It's been that way since Clinton was elected. Certainly the press has something to do with it...they don't want the liberals to have any say, either.

But I can't believe this is because of a couple of people on a cable channel that I, like many other people, don't even get.

Bob thought the baggers were an important development. They were a useful brick for him to throw at his usual targets.

And so he missed the fact that the obsessive press coverage of the "Tea Party Movement" was yet another GOP directed election narrative like "Al Gore sighs too much" and "John Kerry didn't earn his medals".

I think the real problem is that the goddamn Democrats are too willing to capitulate to a GOP that has now degenerated to a gaggle of loony, deranged troglodytes (trolling for a "Jimmy Castor Bunch" link here).

Did somebody say Troglodyte?

(Note: alternate video version!)

I think with the Iran thing stealing their stuff might be part of the equation. Also the Soylent Green factories stand idle.
