OBAMANATION ÜBER ALLES: Hey, all you blue-collar people (and that means YOU, Joe Wurzelbacher). Hey, all you folks that made the mistake of being born white and poor, or without an advanced degree, or having served your country in the military.
Get ready for your new bosses. And "they" thought Bush was a totalitarian?
As the media continues to (unfairly) characterize Governor Palin as inaccessible, the Obama / Biden team has turned media coverage into a capitalist venture — one in which they gentrify the coverage, pricing out all but the “big” media outlets, the overwhelming majority of whom proven themselves quite in the bag for Barack.

Too late, though, some are beginning to notice that the royalty of Obamalot, having gotten what they want from these startstruck, ink-stained groupies — gushing wannabe insiders to the new court who have shaped the news cycle in every possible way to aid their once and future King — are increasingly given to treating them with the disdain that one holds for such mewling sycophants who haven’t an ounce of self-respect.
Having served their purpose, the useful idiots will now have to pay just like the rest of us.
It’s a setup that CNN might recognize, having dealt with another Hussein for access; but it is one that signals another “progressive” baby step toward how the media will be controlled by an Obama administration — the clear subtext being that the administration will obliquely set the rules and conditions for access to the One, and that those media outlets that are found either hostile or insignificant to his Majesty had best clean up their act should they wish to survive.
In short, Obama plans to use the election night activities as a primer and object lesson on how the media will be used, manipulated, and tolerated in a “progressive” America where the tyranny of facts and the fallacy of proof should never force us to lose sight of the glorious ends for which any means necessary are not only permissible, but are in fact encouraged.
One can’t have a Utopia without a mass of willing utopians. And the best way to achieve such a logistical success is to coerce the utopianism out of those reluctant to accept it...
