Thanks, Liberal Media!

Over on Fred Hiatt's WaPoo op-ed page, they take a quick break from global warming denialism, Krauthammer warporn, and whatever you call that stuff Richard Cohen dribbles out to run a piece by two "Democrats" insisting that if Obama were to pledge right now to be a one-term preznit, "it would grant him much greater leverage with Republicans" and besides, this is "The only way" he can "lead."

Really, the only thing to do in a situation like this is to refer you to Tintin.

Who knew it was possible that anyone could write a worse op-ed than Evan Bayh? (Anyone not admitting to being a Republican, I mean.)

Of course, I say that, and I've probably just guaranteed that Joe Lieberman will be up tomorrow.

The Q&A where they defend their brain droppings is even worse.

Heh. Yes it is. It's straight out of RWNM Talking Heads School 101, isn't it? Just keep repeating your key phrase until a lobotomy couldn't dislodge it from the mind of anyone in your audience. No need for said phrase to actually mean anything, or even to be in accord with actual behavior of your paymasters over the past two or thirty years. Just keep saying it long enough, and some people will think, "Hmmm. Must mean Obama and the Dems DON'T want to put country first."
