It doesn’t surprise me that long time hacks like Lamar Alexander and Sean Hannity would go into concern troll/hissy fit mode re: the Obama administrationstating the obvious, neither does it surprise me thatprofessional prissies like Jake Tapper would haul water with such enthusiasm…but listening tolibrul NPR parroting the line was a bit of an eye opener for a provincial like myself.
Geez, what a bunch of, I was going to say good losers, but good losers almost implies some kind of fight, at least initially. This is more like the political equivalent of Stockholm Syndrome, with long term librul Villagers vying solely for the title of who can say “Nixonian” loud and long enough.
Shit, attacking Pox News is as close to a sure thing as you can get, at least if you’re not hopelessly trapped in perpetual inside-the-beltway loserdom, which seems to be their default position/mode…even AFTER progressives (more or less) won, resoundingly, TWO national elections. First, it’s VALID criticism, it rallies the base, it sets a tone, it puts Pox on the defensive, it’s also a tried and true tactic. The fact that the librul Villagers don’t understand this is testament to their having been a little too comfortable for a little too long, even as they’ve inculcated a perpetually subordinate mindset.
They’re totally blind to the fact that the wingers whom they envy are now despised by most of us out here…
