I Won’t Hold My Breath

17 March 2009

When the dust settles in a few months, and we have a chance to take a breath and reflect on how this economic downturn was handled, it will be interesting to see if the entire mainstream press will impose the same, withering scrutiny of the Obama administration as the press imposed on President Bush after Hurricane Katrina.  “Feckless” does not even begin to describe what we’re seeing today with the AIG bailouts, the contrived outrage, and the ridiculous posturing.


Of course, it ain’t gonna happen.  The list of institutions that the government-media complex thinks are “too big to fail” includes, incestuously enough, the Obama administration.  We can be fairly certain that while Ms. Pelosi arranges legislation to rescue the big-city newspapers, the fawning press will use every resource at its disposal to subsidize Obama’s public approval ratings.  After all, Chris Matthews is undoubtedly becoming addicted to that tingle that he gets up his leg every time Obama opens his mouth to read the teleprompter, and Matthews won’t give up that addiction without a fight.

    Easy, qb. Hold on to your anti-umbrage. The dust, as you say, hasn’t settled yet. Self-inflicted wedgies don’t become you.

    Coop, what is going on in the White House, and on Capitol Hill, is a very, very funny comedy – a dark one, but a comedy nonetheless. In my short 35 or so years of political sentience, variously defined, I have never seen such a display of baldly preposterous preening, a$$-covering, and the like. Words like “hilarious” don’t quite get to it.
