Over at the No Quarter blog, Larry Johnson explained why Barry Obama is in fact a dick. We’ve always been of the mind that he’s more like a really rude eunuch who feels the world has unfairly maligned him because he was castrated on the south-side of Chicago for wearing mom jeans to a pickup basketball game near Communist-sky park.
Regardless, Mark Halperin, who asked if there was a 7 second time delay before calling Obama a dick, is usually quite well-mannered. So what gives? Halperin is still an Obama crotch-sniffer, no matter what he says.
Of course, it’s true to say that Obama’s behavior was rude, but what’s new? He’s always been a divider-in-chief. He’s always been looking for ways to categorize the world into the have’s and the have-not’s. It’s what Liberals/Progressives/Democrats do.
The question is why did Halperin call him on it? Suspicious.
You have Chris Wallace on Fox News calling Bachmann a flake one week, and then the next week Halperin on MSNBC calls Obama a dick. Hmmm…
Was it all staged? Is this MSNBC sending a message to Fox News and the media critics: See! We’re rough on our ideological brethren too… *cough* once.
Or…did Obama have Halperin call him a dick just to give Teh Barry a sympathy bump in the polls?
Bachmann got some sympathy out of her dust up with Wallace, but Obama won’t get any love just because one of his stenographers called him a dick. Why? Because Obama did in fact act dickishly at his press conference. He was being a dick. Everyone knows it. The economy is headed for a second recessesion (or have we just been in one big, long depression, I don’t know), and Obama’s economic policies are the only reason we haven’t gotten out of it sooner. And at Obama’s presser he blamed, as usual, everyone but himself, and launched some bizarre and absurd attack on people who own corporate jets. Because, you know, they’re the evil one’s who are truly holding up this economic recovery. (AND they were the real culprits behind the death of O.J.’s ex-wife!)
Maybe it is an intentional set-up for a new media meme to his base: See! Obama has spine, and he can be a dick to Republicans when he needs to be! Don’t you dare sit out 2012!
