The Liberal Media . . .

I find it odd that Glenn Reynolds is complaining (via Memeorandum) about the media's supposed failure to adequately vet candidate Obama in 2008 when a week ago he was denouncing one of Obama's harshest critics—Paul Krugman— and absurdly implying that Krugman had elevated Obama to a "messiah."

If he is going to complain about the media's coverage of Obama, Reynolds ought to at least acknowledge of the President's early liberal critics.

I used To Be Disgusted . . .

Via Memeorandum, I see that the latest faux controversy to emerge from right-wingers is this video of Michelle Obama supposedly dissing America. I defy anyone to interpret what the First Lady is saying in the video, especially since her mouth is obscured during part of the clip. According to James Robbins, in the Washington Times she is saying, "all this just for a flag."

Robbins has no real basis for his accusation other than in his reckoning it is what she "appears" to say. These clowns just keep becoming more jaw-droppingly ridiculous and cartoonishly stupid to the extent that I am left speechless.

I defer to Elvis Costello:

Now They're Stupid And Whiny

I didn't watch the White House Correspondent's Dinner, but I saw the fall out from the President's mild mockery of The Donald. Memeorandum has links from Jim Hoft who whined that "It took Obama about 10 seconds before he attacked Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night. Of course, Donald Trump was sitting in the room and did not have an opportunity to respond."

Some Guy called the "Blogprof" sputtered that ". . .most people would agree that repeatedly punching someone in the face while your friends hold that person from responding is less than fair and amounts to bullying in the extreme."

This is what has these clowns whining:
“Donald Trump is here tonight . . .“Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald. And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like, ‘Did we fake the moon landing?’ ‘What really happened on Roswell?’ And ‘Where are Biggie and Tupac?’”

I'm continuously amazed at what thin-skinned babies most rightwingers are. If anything, Obama owes an apology to Dale Gribble and Fox Mulder for putting them in the same company as Trump.

Update: I give Glenn Reynolds and Ann Althouse some credit. They are both claim that Trump wins because Obama mentioned him at all. I think it's an absurd claim, Trump is on his way to being a punchline, if not already there; but their Trump wins narrative is preferable to the crocodile tears of Jim Hoft.
