Boy, and how.....

Stephen Kruiser: "Bias being what it is, the media didn’t start spinning tales of apocalyptic doom for the Democrats. They did what they always do: unquestioningly fall in line behind the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The modern American media is still desperately clinging to the vestige of the prominence it once had in the nation’s political conversation. The people who used to dictate not only the subject matter, but the terms of the conversation as well, are now adjusting to being mere participants in that conversation. And the adjustment isn’t going well at all.

They’re mad that Sarah Palin is still here after spending two years trying to destroy her and her family. They are incensed that the Tea Party movement has not only survived but has become a dominant political force in a little more than a year.

They are especially seething that everyone in America didn’t fall in love with the “historic” president and that he’s about to suffer an embarrassment at the polls from a political movement they gleefully reported as being close to dead just twenty three months ago. So, like panicky children, they lash out.

Their feigned concern for the fate of the Republican party might have been something they could sell to a great number of Americans just ten short years ago. But on what planet is anyone in 2010 going to believe that Keith Olbermann gives a whit about what the Tea Party is doing to the GOP?

The extremism scale is a relative one. The extremist won in 2008. The people who are about to march to electoral triumph in response to that can only be seen as extreme when looked at from the far left — which is where most of the MSM goes to work every day."

Can I get an AMEN?
