Comment of the Day

John Cole wrote a great piece, We Are All Somerby Now, about how awful the DC media machine is today. The Villagers obviously don't give a sh*t about this country - they'd rather be part of the cool kids, and Drudge is so much more fun than those boring economists and besides, you really don't want to get on the bad side of Rush. Talk about civic cowardice.

Anyway, Cole's comment section had some interesting follow-ons. This one was definitely worth a gander:

Why are they gleefully reporting about Joe the Plumber giving economic advice to the House republicans while their colleagues are writing about the Republicans being unified in opposition to the stimulus and putting two and two together and realizing that the opposition to the stimulus from Republicans is based on the deep thoughts of a drug addled radio host and a guy who installs toilets?

Current condensed repiggie meme:

Between Daschle and Blagojevich, Obama’s administration is the most corrupt government in American history.

Doesn’t matter that Blago wasn’t even part of Obama’s administration. The verdict is in, and the Obama presidency has failed. He came in here promising to change the tone, and he trashed the place, and it wasn’t his place.

He promised to reach across the aisle, and look what he’s done so far: nothing but vicious attacks on Rush Limbaugh and foot-dragging on the tax cuts Americans need. It’s altogether disgraceful, really, and we’re about to lose our patience with him. We can only take so much, you know.

Hey, don’t take it from me—ask David Broder and Chuck Todd. They’ll tell it to you straight. We’ve built this party on a firm foundation: mocking Obama for telling people to keep their tires inflated, giving creationists and flat-earthers control over U.S. science policy, and reminding hardworking men and women that Al Gore is fat.

Ain't that the truth?

Weird -- that "comment" chez Cole sounds a little familiar.
