Video Proof that MSNBC *Hearts* Obama (Like We Needed It)
"...For some inexplicable reason having to do with who knows what, a widespread impression has grown among many politics fans that MSNBC and its crowd of talkers -- including Chris "Thrill Up My Leg" Matthews, Norah "The GOP Is Doomed to Die" O'Donnell and Ed "It's Time to Grind Them Into the Ground" Schultz -- are somewhat in favor of President Obama.
Well, actually in complete love with the Great Change Agent.
Now, thanks to the ubiquitous cameras of C-SPAN, comes official videoed word from Kareem Dale, special assistant to the president for arts and culture and a key White House advisor on disability policy...(Video at 1:59)" (source)
We can also see the White House Press pool stand for Obama I can't quite remember, did they ever stand for Bush?!
I truly worry about the future of our democracy --our checks and balances-- when the press is in so openly in love with the President... When comedians are afraid to mock him (what will happen this weekend at the White House Corespondents dinner?)... When even the "rebel" stores are full of Obama-gear. I know most of the Obamatrons© will never admit it, but it's creepy! (You know it's pretty bad when even the NYT's Frank Rich thinks the adulation is a bit overboard!)
