The usual suspects all have their panties in a bunch over the snub of their lunatic press goddess, Helen Thomas. Atrios claims that this is proof that Bush is a “spoiled little child,” Kos merely mentioned it in a sort of stream of consciousness/rambling missive whose only overall themse is that Bush sucks. In another shocking revelation, Kos was not impressed with Bush’s speech. Who ever would have guessed that?
At any rate, as far as the Thomas snub- who cares. If anyone deserved to be treated with disrespect, it was/is that cackling old hag, a partisan hack who has not had an original or independent thought in thirty years. I wouldn’t call on someone who has labeled me the “worst President ever,” and Helen has not had a coherent question for ages (“Why do you want to bomb babies, Ari?” is typical fare).
Would Bill Clinton call on Rush Limbaugh if he were sitting in the front row with a press badge?
Oh, and before I forget, read the comments at Kos- they are deep and inciteful, running from the ‘Bush is drunk or was right before’ to the ‘Bush was popping pills.’ These guys are so desperate that a style critic is now their opinion leader.
