Karma Police, Arrest This Man: Next Media Animation On WeinerGate | Main | Chris Christie Is Going To Reimburse State For Private Helicopter Trips

According to Media, Obama "Barely Paying Attention" To 2012;
According to Schedule, He's Attended 18 Fundraisers In Past 60 Days

I really want to work in the Make Believe Media.

They often say we bloggers are "jealous" of them.

Let me tell you something, and I'm only going to admit this once: You are correct.

This is my perfect job. This is my dream. Wake up at 10, check my email boxes, see a couple of "stories" planted to me by Obama or DNC communications people, I type them up (I can type), I hit "submit," I take a nap, I read leftwing blogs all day (I don't want to, but I could, if the job required, as it does), I knock off at the crack of four and go out drinking with Obama and DNC communications people who tell me stuff that I can put in tomorrow's, ahem, "news article."

And you accuse me of being jealous?

Holy F*** yes I am jealous. How could I not be jealous? They say there's no such thing as the perfect crime but, wait, that's you who say there's no such thing as the perfect crime.

This is the perfect crime. It's not even illegal, I don't think.

Are you kidding me with this? I am so jealous, I can't even explain to you how jealous I am. I am green with envy. I am vari-colored with envy. I am a diverse rainbow of possibilities with envy.

This is a job? You get paid to do this?

Holy Crap, and I whine about public-union schoolteachers.

I bet you have a pretty good health care plan, too.

What the Funk and Wagnall's are the rest of us doing? We're chumps.

You know when I call you dumb? I do not mean a word of it. You're brilliant. Who the hell else gets paid for a hard day of moving an email to an article queue and then hitting the snooze button?

Via Tim Graham's tweet feed, and retweeted by Jammie Wearing Fool's tweet feed.

No penises were exposed in this interaction. We kept it above board on this one. It was hard to resist public displays of erection, but we soldiered through.

Okay, Let Me Be Unlike The Make Believe Media... And be fair.

The first article didn't say that Obama was "barely paying attention." It reported that Jim Carney, who doesn't know what he's talking about, said that. And that article quoted him deadpan, without skepticism or context.

The media calls repudiating someone's quotes with facts "context" when they do it to a conservative. But they see no need for context when it's a Democrat.

And to be fair still further, that second bit, about the fundraisers, came not from Geraghty checking the schedule, but from the media, too. From the AP, if you can believe it.

Now if we can only get the guy who wrote the first article to have drinks once in a while with the guy who wrote the second article -- now we're cookin' with gas.

Oh: People want my twitter feed. It's here.

The thing is, gotta tell ya, I stopped Tweeting for a long time. It tended to suck me in, when I should be either 1, taking the night off, or 2, working on my actual blog or talking in the comments.

I have re-emerged on Twitter for this WeinerGate thing, because last Saturday, I was truly on fire, with a, may I say?, hilarious hectoring of @RepWeiner. Basically I pretended I believed him, and really wanted these nefarious hack3rz exposed. I was totally on Team Weiner.

That said, I think I'm about to mostly stop again, except for occasional blog-post pimping and exchanges and yelling at the media.

But it don't cost ya nothin' to follow, so might as well.
