Liberal media chokes on reality

From Judith Warner writing for Time (emphasis added). (Apparently Time still has a web page, but maybe I’m getting them mixed up with Newsweak, the media company you can buy at the Dollar Store.)

The years since Barack Obama’s election have born this promise out: Americans are more divided than ever before, with views of life, politics and fate sharply divided both by partisan affiliation and educational level. The “national catharsis” that the New York Times declared his presidential victory to have achieved, the “we as a people” the president-elect claimed would work together toward a shared vision of a better future, were, it’s so painfully clear now, works of magical thinking that diverted us from the talk of watermelons on the campaign trail and the reality of a divided Congress that would immediately greet him.

[A] divided Congress that would immediately greet him?! Time may have a web page but they obviously lack fact checkers. Actually, Obama had Dem supermajorities in both the House and the Senate.

More Warner-generated hilarity ensues.

When the fantasy that the election of Barack Obama would recreate America ran aground, the rush to blame the president for having somehow bungled the job was immediate and fierce. He wasn’t hopeful enough, passionate enough, true enough to the superhuman capacity to create a desirable, indeed, likeable “us” that had been so readily projected onto him.

Ran aground is a kind assessment. In fact, the fantasy became a nightmare, the rush to blame was the grim reflection of the President’s leadership and policy ineptness, and his superhuman capacity is pending the release of his ACTs, SATs, LSATs, transcripts, and writings (but all I hear is crickets).

Liberal media angst: catch it!


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
