After running one of the greatest propaganda movements outside of Nazi Germany there is still great unrest in the MSM. Apparently even the election of their anointed one has done little to quell their lunacy. I suppose so long as President Bush remains at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue they'll continue to bay at the moon and froth at the mouth. Take Chris Matthews who recently called for President Bush to resign early so Obama can get a head start on his presidency. I guess things like civility, precedent, and even the Constitution can be steam rolled in their anticipation for the Obama inauguration.
Even good liberal lunes like Nancy Pelosi aren't immune to the Obama express. Detroit Free Press writer Rochelle Riley claims that the only way the "ineffective" Pelosi can redeem herself by starting immediate impeachment proceedings after all much of the groundwork has already been laid by Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich "the bravest member of Congress" If not for the sake of the economy opines Riley then for the pardons that would be issued by Bush. Riley conveniently forgets the truly criminal pardons of Frank Rich, the 16 members of the terrorist FALN group, and other cronies of the Clinton Administration ironically overseen by Obama pick for Attorney General Eric Holder. It's a pretty rabid piece all that's missing really is the obligatory picture of Bush with horns coming out of his head.
The fantasy is taken one step further by New york Times writer Gail Collins dreams of both Bush and Cheney stepping down to allow for, deep breath, President Pelosi to take over until January 20. Collins gushes "Obviously, she’d defer to her party’s incoming chief executive, and Barack Obama could begin governing. As a bonus, the Pelosi presidency would put a woman in the White House this year after all." The only bright spot in this scenario for me would seeing Hillary Clinton's head exploding as Pelosi took the Oath of Office (Seriously I'm surprised she managed to campaigne even half heartedly for Obama)
Collins continues "Can I see a show of hands? How many people want George W. out and Barack in? A great many Americans have been counting the days all year on their 2008 George W. Bush Out of Office Countdown calendars." This is actually an amusing quote if you picture Collins saying it to a room full of stuffed animals as nice men in white coats look on. It also goes to show how few people are reading the NYT (shock). The Bush calanders really don't surprise me that much. After all since liberals don't celebrate Christmas they have to have something to look forward to in their sad dreary lives.
