The media and Obama

Given that Evan Thomas recently referred to Obama as a God (and he did so with a straight face), you must read the Anchoress’s take on the media’s sick relationship with Obama.  You’ve got to admire prose that opens with this paragraph:

Evan Thomas, that bellweather 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.

    Chris Matthews, who would suckle Obama’s manboobs, if only Obama would lactate for him…”

    The Anchoress joins the list of people I’m taking on my ark.

    There was a Steinfeld episode in which Frank Constanza (Jerry Stiller) and Kramer design a man-bra actually they may have called it a man-bro (for those men who are a tad top heavy). Jerry Stiller is quite excited about it all and ends up prancing around in his new gear feeling much better about his personal appearance. Of course, Jerry walks onto the scene and is just aghast that his father looks like he is in drag.

    It did not seem all that amusing to me when I watched the episode, but since The Anchoress added a suckle and lactate touch to the visuals …I find myself giddy for some (good) reason.

    THOMAS: He’s the teacher. He is going to say, ‘now, children, stop fighting and quarreling with each other.’ And he has a kind of a moral authority that he – he can – he can do that-

    So that makes Obama the Father and Son, so I guess TOTUS is the Holy Spirit? (I’d rather TOTUS than Rahm Emanuel.)

    As for “Now, children.” – can we even count the levels on which that offends? Perhaps Thomas doesn’t remember how well everyone listened to the last Black guy who said, “Can’t we all just get along”?

    Another nice bit from The Anchoress:

    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.

    How perfect is that? (Chris Buckley,Kathleen Parker, et al would of course stand in for Charlotte Lucas.)

    This statement is so chilling to me. “Obama is a sort of God”? I can’t even being to describe the fear that struck in my heart. Even Korea only referes to Kim Jon Il as ‘Dear Leader.”

    Is this the first step to full totalitarianism – the media referring to an elected offical as “God”? And Chris tingle-up-my-leg Matthews breathing “Yeah!” in the background.

    Sick, sick, sick.
