Warning: epic media failure ahead

The headline from author Frida Ghitis (that’s the name; no typos were invoked in the construction of this sentence) at CNN says this: In Mideast, Obama knocks it out of the park. Her summary:

It was a masterly performance.

What happened? Did Middle East peace bust out suddenly? The lion laid down with the lamb? Iran renounced its nuclear arms program and opened its doors to inspectors? Egypt undid its repressive move towards totalitarianism Islam? Syrian “leaders” and “rebels” quit killing Syrian civilians?

No, Brother Barack gave another speech. Masterly.

Dear Reader had previously hit one out of the park at the 2004 Democrat Convention and we can see where that got us: great for him and poorly for those who want to work, want a free press, need to buy gas, pay taxes, want to keep their guns, are concerned about national security, dislike governmental cover-ups, are compelled to buy health care, don’t want Obama killing Americans by drones, have to repay America’s debt, etc.

Frida fails to grasp there’s saying and there’s doing, and that they aren’t quite the same.


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.
