Let’s begin by nominating Jimmie Bise Jr. for the Pulitzer Prize for Humorous Understatement. That there’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
Meanwhile, in the Real 1% — the pro-Obama media — the latest furor is over a second clip from the same secret (and possibly illegally recorded) video in which Romney criticizes talk of Mideast peace based on the “two-state solution.” Ed Morrissey explains that Romney is right:
What Romney actually says is that peace isn’t possible because the Palestinians won’t accept a two-state plan as a permanent solution … a point that has been obvious ever since Yasser Arafat walked away from a carefully-crafted deal at the end of the Clinton administration and called for another intifada. With Hamas now in the mix and their parent group Muslim Brotherhood taking control of Egypt, the Palestinians have even less incentive to accept a permanent state of Israel.
Nick Gillespie has the headline of the day:
It’s important not to be distracted by the media’s narrative framing of events. It takes a strong mind to be able to resist their propaganda.
That’s why I Watch MSNBC So You Don’t Have To:
Watching #MSNBC today, it’s like a reality-TV show, “Keeping Up With the Obama Sycophants.”
