Not Sure I Agree With Melissa Clouthier

It doesn’t appear that the Black Sox scandal destroyed baseball; I don’t see how a generation of commie swine disguised as the media can destroy investigative reporting.

In an America with a re-vitalized media, do you really want to be the candidate that says “You can’t ask about my transcripts; I’m invoking the Obama Rule.” That would go over as well as, say, Obama’s budget, which combined idiocy and bad luck to ride to a unanimous 0-97 near-victory in the Senate, but mostly idiocy.

Update: Gerard says the media has found Rick Perry’s transripts. I, for one, rejoice that the country has been spared four years of an ideologue who would, no doubt, have run trillion-dollar deficits and reduced the country to an object of international ridicule.

     “I don’t see how a generation of commie swine disguised as the media can destroy investigative reporting.” Amen or word. I’m pro choice on that sentiment.

     Well, one thing’s for sure…if the Dems try and make a big deal about the GOP candidate’s college transcripts, then it  should follow that Obama’s transcripts will have to be bared to scrutiny by the American public.

    Until the re-vitalized media shows up, yes, I think that will be the case. A similar situation to that which exists for covering Apple events.

    Do you really believe that’s what will happen.

    ONE Generation?  It’s been 43 years since Cronkite threw his on-air Tet Offensive tantrum, 39 years since Woodward & Bernstein screwed the Pooch on Watergate.  That’s at least two generations and counting.  Two generations of solid-pink programming.

    Excuse me…I was having a brain fart when I had that ridiculous thought.

    Cavity searches for conservatives and Republicans, but the press will take the word of any liberal or Democrat with a press release, right?

    Time for my joke again (I only know one, and it isn’t very funny):

    Q: What’s the difference between a member of the MSM and a prostitute?

    A: A prostitute is honest about who she is.

    If Obama gets pushed to the wall on this someone can always photoshop some lovely grades for him and I doubt  Occidental or Columbia would say a thing.

    But of course, who in the press would push it?. How dare they question our brilliant first African American President on his grades!!!

    And a prostitute charges the recipient of her … um … services.

    I think somebody should beat him to it. All his transcripts could show him with an AA+ average.

    CORRECTION:  It only gives Democrats a pass because, after Obama, asking any Democrat about his transcripts would be raaaaaacist. 

    But Bill Clinton did manage to change the post-JFK rules about medical disclosure.
