    Andrew Sullivan Still Silent On Obama-Chavez LoveFest

    Andrew Sullivan Still Silent On Obama-Chavez LoveFest

    Andrew Sullivan complained that as of 7:27 p.m. on April 16, 2009 (approximately three hours after the interrogation memos were released by DOJ), none of DrudgeReport, Instapundit, Michelle Malkin or Pajamas Media had a post on the topic:

    No mention of the torture memos appears right now on the Drudge Report (which provides news of a prank at Dominos pizza), Instapundit (which mentions the new DVD for the Lord of The Rings trilogy), Pajamas Media, or Michelle Malkin. They are reacting to the evidence of war crimes committed by the president of the United States the way they did at the time the crimes were committed.

    I have this to report. As of this moment in time, approximately 24 hours after Barack Obama yucked it up with Hugo Chavez, one of the worst abusers of press and individual freedom, agent of Iran and Hezbollah, supplier of support to FARC narco-terrorists, jailer of opposition political opponents, closer of opposition televisions stations, user of street thugs to beat the opposition silly, soon to be President-For-Life:

    Andrew Sullivan’s blog still does not have a post on the Obama-Chavez LoveFest, although he does have a post titled “It hurts when I pee.”Others who are maintaining radio silence include Matthew Yglesias, anyone else at Think Progress, Ezra Klein, Glenn Greenwald, FireDogLake, Talk Left, Crooks and Liars, DailyKos, and I’m sure there are more, but I can’t check everyone (note, Oliver Willis and Comments from Left Field do mention it).

    Does not mentioning something constitute agreement or reflect one’s position or if only a few hours have passed, mean the matter never will be addressed? Of course not, after all Obama says he likes to know what he is talking about before he speaks.

    But if it’s good enough for Andrew Sullivan to play that game, it’s good enough for me.

    Something to joke about: Obama Channels Seinfeld
    Something not to joke about: American Roxana Saberi sentenced to 8 years in prison in Iran.

    The first victim of liberalism is a sense of irony. The point of the post and many of the comments was not that Sullivan needed to post on the subject, but to point out that he did not hold himself to the same ridiculous standard to which he held others.

    And just a handshake? Not quite. Obama treated Chavez like a best buddy, something which will not be lost on the people of Venezuela who are struggling for their freedoms. At least the people of Venezuela had hope of outside support before the summit, now they have none. The lack of courage on the left to call Obama out on this is pathetic. And please don’t repeat the excuse that Chavez was elected; given the intimidation and the control of state media and security forces, the election hardly was free and fair, even if the vote count was accurate. So much for Obama’s message of hope.

    Has Chavetch gained too much influence over President O’Barmy’s pooch?
