Word on the street is that the Indian doctor on CNN is declining the Surgeon General job and that a top deputy at Treasury is dropping out, too. Plus: the shit has not yet hit the fan over the nomination of Charles Freeman to the chairmanship of the National Intelligence Council.
I guarantee you Obama will drop that guy soon. Inside a week.
Don’t you know how thoroughly and breathlessly Big Media would be pounding on a Republican Administration if as many of its nominees continued to withdraw and be exposed as tax cheats and anti-Semites as they are in Obama’s Administration? They’d all be depicted as corrupt plutocrats and worse.
Again: this isn’t even a question. It isn’t possible to imagine today’s Big Media casting a critical eye on Obama’s disastrous start. The liberal Northeastern whitebread media establishment is so fucking scared of getting shaken down for their insensitivities —real or imagined — that they won’t dare lift even an eyebrow against Newguy. They made him what he is because they believe that their primary function is to float social progress.
And now we have Socialism in America.
Thanks, Hillary. Thanks, John.
