  1. It was a very well reasoned article too Patterico. Panic has set in. Blame is being apportioned. They have even bypassed the voting machine scam so far.

  2. Did you catch this line:

    and the last two years the R’s have filibustered like tantrum throwing 4-year-olds,

    Maybe I missed something, but what have the Republicans filibustered? Compared to the Dems’ filibusters?

  3. Yeah, except the author is a mental giant who says that the media is prejudiced in favor of Senator McCain, and against Senator Obama.

    There is some choice commentary in the article about the need to control the media in the interests of fairness. To the benefit of the DNC.

    It must be very, very subtle performance art.

  4. “Yeah, except the author is a mental giant who says that the media is prejudiced in favor of Senator McCain, and against Senator Obama.”

    I meant well reasoned for the left. I’m nuancy that way. It’s obviously a relative term considering the usual trash that is produced by the community based reality.

  5. But most importantly we should bring up re-regulating the media and who owns it and what that conflict of interest is a lot more. By pretending there’s no conflict of interest we’re failing to alert the public that they’re being lied to or given a looking at a coin at the bottom of a pool slanted truth.

    Fairness doctrine, anyone?

  6. What is the saying about the Russian dancing bear? It is that it dances at all, not how well it dances?

  7. Someone smarter than me hit the nail on the head…. He said “When the Dems don’t poll well in Kansas, they don’t write books titled What are we doing wrong in Kansas“.

    They have gone from insane to full -on bug-fuck nuts, and god, are they ever funny…

    I mean, how else would they EVER come up with a line like this: “And afterwords we’ll blame ourselves the same way we did with Gore and Kerry”.

    Seriously… They blamed themselves? Since when is the SCotUS and Diebold considered “one of them”?

  8. How absolutely scary did that read to you??? I know I’m sitting here in total amazement at what I read in all that….

    wow….

  9. Surprisingly tucked in usual blithering comments from the HuffPo link was this,

    Yes, people want change. But Obama is not the kind of change they want. And Sarah Palin’s speech was a big ole bucket full of ice water on the mistaken idea that any kind of change is good change.

    Dana (084de8)

  10. We’re coming off the worst eight years in our country’s history.

    That quote shows just how much the left’s perception of things is filtered through their sheer hatred of the Republicans. It’s one thing to disagree with someone on the right approach to dealing with the issues, but to be so incapable of believing anything can be right if the other party is in charge is ridiculous.

  11. Primary evidence of the meltdown in action. Asserting that when it comes down to crunch time the media goes into the tank for conservatives. Who the hell does he think he’s fooling? Desperate? Try “all-out panic”.

    It’s a beautiful thing.

  12. Adam McKay directed Anchorman.

    He thinks his candidate is great, when in reality, he sounds like a doofus when not fed by a Teleprompter, and calls women “sweetie.”

    Hysterical blindness is the term you’re looking for.

  13. “The worst Eight years in our country’s history”
    Wow, just, Wow.
    This isn’t even the worst eight years in my 51 year lifetime.
    Let’s see:
    Loss in Vietnam.
    Impeachment/resignation of Nixon.
    18% mortgage interest under Carter.
    Gas shortages under Carter.
    All in an Eight year period.

    Now, in the country’s history, there are several notable stretches. The Civil War years spring to mind…

  14. Adam McKay directed Anchorman.

    That explains so, so much…

    He thinks his candidate is great, when in reality, he sounds like a doofus when not fed by a Teleprompter, and calls women “sweetie.”

    Seriously, Sen. Obama tossing in a mountain of uh’s, um’s, and ah’s when he USES a freaking teleprompter…

    The only thing they prevent him from doing is saying what he actually thinks… Or doesn’t think, depending on how you view his mental faculties…

    It’s a beautiful thing.

    These things go up and these things go down. I wouldn’t count on things remaining so peachy, but enjoy it while you can. Oh BTW here’s Sarah Palin’s first moronic gaffe:

    Seems she doesn’t really understand the way Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae work.

    A beautiful thing, indeed.

    Peter (e70d1c)

  16. Let me get this right. This guy is complaining that the press hates Obama and is pumping up McCain? That’s a bit like Putin complaining about the coverage his opponents are getting.

    Kevin Murphy (0b2493)

  17. Did you see the first two comments? (I didn’t have the stomach to read any more):

    if McSame wins i think it will be a call to ARMS

    There is a disease in this country and it can’t be cured by talking about it. There are no right words. Sometimes you just have to take a knife to that cancer.

    I used to pity them as fools, now I see them as potentially violent fools. Much worse.

    Chuck (b32195)

  18. I was just struck by how much it reads like an Onion article. Funny headline, which is repeated verbatim in the first paragraph, and alluded to at the end. The style is very similar.

    I certainly hope they bring a knife to the gun fight?

  21. “We’re coming off the worst eight years in our country’s history.”

    Such drama!

    With punch lines like this he can’t really believe that anyone would take him seriously? Can he?

    (Except that we’re losing part! Both serious AND funny!! He’s a comic…right?)

    Philip (64d05e)

  22. Peter, cross-posting your stupidity only makes YOU look more lame.

    Icy Truth (a7ead4)

  23. Anyone who thinks these people aren’t seriously deranged is living in bizarro world. Black is white and up is down to them. Gore and Kerry 1,000 times more qualified than W?!?! There is feral madness running like a virus through the Democrat party.

    Yeeeaaaaarrrhhhh! Works for me, keep it up!

    Peg C. (48175e)

  24. Always very good to start the day with a laugh!

    htom (412a17)

  25. McKay is a no-talent imitator of Christopher Guest. Less a director than a set-dresser, his idea of a script is this: “OK, Will, do something funny now.”

    gp (78ea4b)

  26. I used to pity them as fools, now I see them as potentially violent fools. Much worse.

    Especially since we’re the ones who actually own guns…

    A knife only works if you manage to get close enough to use it…

  27. Schadenfreude is an ugly and petty emotion. And yet, their tears are like sweet sweet candy to me. I must be a very bad man.

    BadLiberal (a3cb5b)

  28. I followed the link and laughed hysterically.

    b10621 (df882e)

  29. No, no, no you can’t make me link to that slime site…I will take your word for it. I trust you…see?

    Sue (4d3ef7)

  30. That man is as crazy as a shit house rat. I haven’t been so stunned since Bill Clinton wanted to quibble over the meaning of “is.”

    Ropelight (49e412)

  31. “The worst Eight years in our country’s history” … Amazing. How about 1930-1938? Or any 8-year period that includes 1861–1865? WW2 was no fun, either. Jeez.

  32. if McSame wins i think it will be a call to ARMS

    There is a disease in this country and it can’t be cured by talking about it. There are no right words. Sometimes you just have to take a knife to that cancer.

    What these tools often fail to remember is that this country just happens to be chock-full of quiet patriots who won’t take kindly to those kind of shenanigans.

  33. Oh yeah…. No Justice No Peace, right on.
