Stupid question of the day

From Slate, the question (with some necessary set up) is this:

President Obama promised transparency and open government. He failed miserably. So why do Washington watchdog groups look the other way?

The answer is legion, for they are many. Obama is a mixed race uber—liberal Democrat. “Watchdog” groups—think the media first and foremost—like him. They want him to win. He’s one of theirs. He deserves special treatment. They’re vested in protecting him and moving him… forward. Obama warrants the sovereign power he seeks and those few watchers who question his limits are tools to be cast into the fiery pit of diminished access.

And who watches the watchers? For this Administration, the answer is largely limited to the non-traditional media.

So instead of looking away or defending the indefensible, let us be resolved to choose to evaluate Dear Reader by the content of his character and the quality of his ideas.

And as for Slate’s initial quandary, consider there are no stupid questions, only stupid people.

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.
