OK, I admit it: I look at this list of reliable Obamacare stooges…
Present at the meeting [between President Barack Obama and various liberals]: MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and Lawrence O’Donnell, Washington Post economics blogger Ezra Klein, Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn, Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall, ThinkProgress editor-in-chief Judd Legum, Atlantic senior editor Garance Franke-Ruta, Salon political writer Brian Beutler and Fox News contributor Juan Williams.
…and I think Rogue Gallery. Aquaman’s Rogue Gallery, or maybe that guy whose superpower was that he had a bee that acted at his command. Dear me, but that is a bad list – and not just because it’s all from the Left. No, it’s all from the part of the Left that refuses to yell at Barack Obama. Put Jeralyn Merritt of TalkLeft or Jane Hamsher of FireDogLake in the same room with the President and you can expect that you’d get an earful*.Which is why the President didn’t invite them, of course. All hail epistemic closure!
*Personally, I doubt that I’d agree with pretty much any of it, but that’s not really the point. The point is that As hire As, and Bs hire Cs… and Barack Obama listens to Ed Schultz, which is something that should frighten most progressives.
