Andrew Sullivan Gets Punked | Main | Overnight Open Thread

Jay Cost: Hey, Media, I Don't Want To Tell You Your Jobs Or Nothin', But If You're Going To Keep Insisting Obama Is "Popular," Wouldn't It Be Helpful To Have A Single Poll Demonstrating This Claim?

Popular, in the media's eyes, means "disapproved of by most." That's what it must mean, as Obama has had negative job approval for a long time.

This is not a recent phenomenon. Nor is it a sometimes type thing.

He has been unpopular, consistently, for a long time.

Just in case words still mean what they used to B.O. (Before Obama, as Spike Lee's proposed new dating system had it.)

Stolen from Hot Air.
