I Can Haz Crypto-Marxism?

Done by Lorien1973.

Thanks to DPUD for tracking that blog down for me. He's got another Around the Moronosphere in 80 IQ Points up, which I heartily recommend to Pennsylvanians and small-town folk all over.

Just have your children help you out with the bigger words.

Fresh Obama Nonapology!: I'm sorry you're too stupid to understand what I meant.

CNN's Balanced Coverage Includes Three Panelists Who All Claim Obama Didn't Mean What He Obviously Meant:

Bonus points to Jack Cafferty for likening the same economic desperation that drives Pennsylvanians to Jesus to the poverty that drives Saudis to Al Qaeda:

Actually, Jack Cafferty and Jeffrey Toobin both get doubleplus bonus points for first claiming that Obama never meant to imply that economic privation drives people to Jesus, firearms and xenophobia, and then immediately adding "But Obama's right, economic privation does drive people to Jesus, firearms, and xenophobia."

Ummm.... Jack and Jeffey, I know you're really super-smart guys, being on TV and all, but I'm afraid if this is as "simple" and "obvious" as you assert, you're going to have to choose between the defenses 1) he didn't mean anything so patently offensive and absurd and 2) but by the way he's 100% dead-bang balls-on right.

Fair and balanced, CNN! I love how they focus almost exclusively on the "bitterness" remark (just as Our Lord and Savior Barack Obama decreed,, so it was heralded, so it shall be) and also also accept, entirely uncritically, Obama's explanation that when he said that small-town Americans are driven to xenophobia and hatred of outsiders, he meant that as a good thing.

Newt Gingrich ain't havin' it.

The CNN cocksuckers all claim it's "so simple" and obvious what Obama meant, except they all seem to miss the actual meaning: That were it not for economic desperation, no American would choose to "cling to religion or guns." As Gingrich notes, it's quite possible -- perhaps even likely -- that Americans believe in God, and in the right to self-defense, out of rational conviction and not merely because they're too poor and stupid to have anything else of value.

You Believe This Shit? Video of Hillary playing the elitist card against Obama -- and successfully.

Is there another person on the face of the earth Hillary could call an elitist without exploding in a fiery ball of spontaneous irony?

Incidentally, the press is focusing on "bitterness" because that's mostly what Hillary is focusing on.

They're ignoring the critique made by conservatives, Newt Gingrich, and John McCain.

So you tell me: Are they ignoring the real issue here because they simply are unwilling to credit a non-liberal as offering a legitimate take?

Or are they so isolated in the liberal cocoon they're not even aware that a critique exists apart from Hillary's?

What's more likely? And which is worse?
