Before you tee off on conservatives, I should note that some liberals have noticed this Obamamania, too. Left-leaning Washington Post, for example, concedes it tilted. "Obama deserved tougher scrutiny than he got, especially of his undergraduate years, his start in Chicago and his relationship with Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, who was convicted this year of influence-peddling in Chicago. The Post did nothing on Obama's acknowledged drug use as a teenager."
Inky columnist John Baer explains this happened because Obama is new, different, a "phenomenon." Huh? Apples the Clown is different, too, but I doubt any media outlet is rushing to cover his mini-judge campaign.
Let's be honest. Things are getting a little goofy. According to a report from the distinguished Allentown Commentator, Obama had a news conference yesterday to introduce his new dog. Obama ran through a series of canine commands . . . roll over, play dead, heal, beg, sit.
The press obediently complied.
They've become Zombies! Except for The Onion, the press is completely infected.
And those zombies are everywhere, too. Look, I voted for the guy and ever since, people with vacant looks on their faces have been following me, chanting "Obamaaaa, Obamaaaaaaa." Last night, after pulling into my Nazareth estate, I found myself saying, "Yes, we can!" I've also been fighting this strange urge to compare Obama with Lincoln because they're both from Illinois. There's a strange pod by my bed, too.
I'm putting on another pot of coffee.
