Evan Thomas, that bellwether of media obsequiousness, who once (accurately) predicted that the Democrat-loving press would give John Kerry “10 to 15% points” in his race fo the White House, has declared that President Obama is “sort of god”. Chris Matthews, who would suckle Obama’s manboobs, if only Obama would lactate for him, can be heard saying “yeah,” in the background.
I’ve always told you they thought Obama a godling. Now, they’ve admitted it.
Our press is not only not free, it is completely nuts; mad in its teen-fan lust, lost in the misty aphrodisiac of Obama’s power.
I don’t blame Obama for this. I blame an industry that has so insulated itself and is so lacking in diversity of thought or perspective that it has become an obscene parody of what the craft of journalism was meant to be. And I blame us, for allowing them to get away with it for so long that they could reach this point.
In the piece below, we looked at what I called “living wallpaper”. The press is a sort of “living wallpaper,” too. They’re all around us and you can’t escape them, not in a pub, an airport, a store; the gasbags of the press are yakking and expectorating and stealing all of our breathing air; they are full of sound and fury, indicating nothing. They serve up hours of “nothing.” They serve “nothing.” And they, the “nothings” of the suckling press, are completely dominant.
We are dominated by “nothings,” who run to to do the bidding of a man who does not respect them, can’t respect them, because who can respect a sycophant. Barack Obama is imperious Lady Catherine DeBurgh, and the press is the oafish, intellectually vapid, incurious Mr. Collins, bowing and agreeing, and silencing himself for the sake of her bare acceptance.
The geraniums and begonias we see above, contribute more to the world than our current press.
Obama will suckle them while he must. Then he will eat them. And they’ll have it coming.
By the way, Evan Thomas? In 2007 he said it was the press’ job to bash the president.

National Review: The line between reality and parody blurs
Allahpundit: Notes that according to his suckling press, basically, “All of Obama’s (pbuh) flipflips are for the public good and never for political expediency. I guess the Bush-hate really did scramble their brains.
