On debate night when it became apparent that Mitt Romney was kicking Barack Obama's behind, (albeit a few facts-deformed and some talented acting by Mittster) I tweeted out early on that the right-wing minions and conservative press would call this a decisive Mitt win.
How so? You watched, right. And immediately after, you tuned over to MSNBC and saw Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, and Rachel Maddow skewer the President. As they should have.
You do remember MSNBC-- part of what the right refers to as the mainstream media. That bastion of libs that's in bed with the "anointed one" --the president that can do no wrong. I thought Matthews was going to blow a fuse, he was so upset over the POTUS effort. Schultz sounded like a Romney adviser serving up platitudes. Yeah, that mainstream media is nothing more than a bunch of liberal pussies!
So much for that.
CNN was a tad more tepid, but they too were almost universal in what everybody on the planet knew: Romney took command of the stage, got off some zingers, took control of alleged moderator, Jim Lehrer, and ran away with the show.
Which begs the question: Whose Mainstream Media is it anyway? Last I saw and read, those libs and their NY Times brethren called it Romney's night. So much for that MM.
The left is no different. When their posse is all ganged up, they too resort to the Mainstream Media card. Boring. Illogical too. And darn misleading. Unless it's on Fox and Friends.
