…from extreme embarrassment. Michael Tomasky penned a doozy of psychological projection in his recent Obama’s Swing Vote Victory piece. I’m not going to parse his extremely flimsy poll dissection (he uses one, 1-day poll – that’s it.) where he tries to prove that the Obamacare ruling will sway voters in Obama’s direction.
No, that’s too easy to fisk. I’m going to highlight a small passage where his psychological projection reveals the absolutely insular nature of liberal journalism:
Yes, bring that on, too: I’m sure another Koch-brothers production of purple-faced lunatics shouting at members of Congress will really impress swing voters. Come on, Americans for Prosperity, I’m counting on you!
Where has your internet connection or television been set for the past 8 years, Michael?! It HAS NOT been the right side of the aisle who has been committing juvenile fits of rhetoric, rage and violence. It HAS BEEN the Coffee Party, Occupy Wall Street, SEIU and other union thugs, Moveon.org, Animal Liberation Front, Earth Liberation Front, Code Pink, Black Nationalists, Liberal software creators of ‘Tea Party Zombies must die‘, Multiple anti-war protests advocating the murder of President Bush, The New Black Panther Party, Ted Rall, Ward Churchill, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Bill Ayers and lots and lots of Democrats.
It’s this sort of insular thinking that has thoroughly debased and discredited modern journalism. What’s the difference in MSNBC editing tapes to make a candidate look bad… and having journalists like Mr. Tomasky make such absurd contentions? Not much in my book. It would require Mr. Tomasky to pay attention to events in the real world… not the make believe world inside the liberal ivory tower.
…and just for the record, Michael, I’d like you to produce a video of a purple faced righty to begin with. You can’t.
