Maggie you ignorant slut.

July 24, 2008

(props to SNL)

I should know by now, that when I’m reading opinion pieces on Yahoo News in the morning, I should just avoid anything written by Maggie Gallagher like I do the rantings of Ann Coulter and Brent Bozell III; pissed-off and eggs is a breakfast that I never enjoy.

So yesterday morning, I was having eggs and made the mistake of clicking an article titled Obama Faking It by the afore-mentioned Ms. Gallagher and immediately had pissed-off as well.

Obama has a problem: What do you do when you’re a lightly accomplished one-term senator, a former state legislator from Illinois, a Harvard law graduate who has no substantive record of accomplishments, and you are running against a war hero whom polls show that Americans overwhelmingly view as far more fit to be commander in chief?

Pose, of course.

First off, every news story for the last 2 months shows how bad Obama is beating the piss out of McCain on every issue that the mindless cretins who call themselves pollsters can think to throw at the public. I don’t know if this is based on a poll conducted by Maggie at a cocktail party hosted by Rush Limbaugh or what, but I digress.

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was the one journalist with the courage to name what she was actually seeing happen: Obama faking even being interviewed by the press.

“Let me say something about the message management. He didn’t have reporters with him, he didn’t have a press pool, he didn’t do a press conference,” either in Afghanistan or Iraq, noted Mitchell on the air. Instead Obama manufactured “what some would call ‘fake interviews,’ because they are not interviews from a journalist,” Mitchell went on.

Sorry, but when it comes to what happened I agree more with John Amato’s take on this:

Andrea Mitchell actually told MSNBC viewers that Barack Obama gave “fake interviews” because he didn’t cater to her and the traveling road show during his Iraq/Afghan visit.

Most reporters from the MSM now can be fit under one of two categories: Stenographers and Paparazzi. They cover Obama and McCain like they are Brittney and Paris; like they are competing for the next American Idol rather than the job of leader of the free world. I don’t blame Obama (or McCain for that matter) for treating this group of howling jackals like plague rats in a maternity ward. Who wants this group of yammering assholes following you around so they can sniff your pee and tell the world that you like asparagus.

The whole Obama campaign is something we’ve never seen before — at least not executed to this level of perfection with a media willing to go along because, well, so many of them want it to succeed.

This is the part where she falls off of the end of the earth. Really, Maggie? Really the media is going along with this? Last I checked, the media loves McCain. Journalistic bias is something that will be debated long after I die, but in this instance, Maggie Gallagher just sounds retarded.

Bread, peace and freedom.
