While in the process of laughing hysterically at the sight of the Obama administration using as their Snark Czar – excuse me, “Interim White House Communications Director” – someone who spent 2007 criticizing a much milder government/press adversarial relationship* than the one she’s planning to prosecute now, one of my colleagues wondered privately what this strategy of directly going after critics is going to mean for the White House when they go after the Right.
I can sum it up in one word. More accurately, Clubber Lang can:
Only this is the real world, not the movies. The administration isn’t going to have the scriptwriter on their side for this one.
*The open contempt that this administration shows towards the press is… interesting. Of course, so far the White House has gotten away with it.
