The coverage of the Vice President’s hunting accident is a perfect example of “Stuck on Stupid.” When the press corps has such an open contempt for the administration that they can attempt to turn a hunting accident into a scandal, you can see why the administration is reluctant to work with them. The nice thing about this one is that I really believe that mainstream America already sees this for what it is.
The funniest talking point the Democrats have is that the Administration has tried to cover this up and lie about it. The Vice President said (if not a quote, then a very close paraphrase), “I pulled the trigger, I am responsible.” He said that on National TV. You would think that would take the wind out of the sails of the “shrouded in secrecy” people, but obviously it hasn’t.
I was listening to Rush Limbaugh bemoaning the fact that the Liberals and the press are difficult to parody any more because they have become his parodies. It is amazing but true. I remember how wild and out there the parodies used to be, but now, looking back at the older parodies, they are more like prophecy than parody.
