    Politico home page becomes living self-parody of self-absorbed media

    Politico home page becomes living self-parody of self-absorbed media

    Politico hasn’t been this excited since Herman Cain.

    Looking at the tweets from attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was nauseating enough.

    Obama’s speech was fine, he had some good one liners and some cheap shots, but it certainly wasn’t the funniest speech ever:

    Even the nickname for the event — Nerd Prom — is nauseating. They are not nerds, but they like to think of themselves that way because it elevates them above the riff raff, a/k/a their readers and viewers.

    It’s not right versus left, or old media versus new media. It’s the inside the D.C. Beltway crowd, who live there either physically or mentally, or want to.

    There were tweets with photos of themselves from a few people I was going to embed, but what’s the point? It’s not an individual problem, it’s systemic.

    I will, however, post this screen shot of Politico’s homepage, devoted almost in its entirety to stories about the event (h/t David). Can they possibly be more wrapped up in themselves?

    It must be so nice to be protected by the MSM at every turn. Obama can do no wrong. He can even say that he’s a “Socialist Muslim” or “God bless Planned Parenthood”.

    Oh, let them have their fun. He won, I think he said. He’s about to lose a lot. The bitter clingers already dealt him a bad blow. Next is Benghazi and Boston. The partiers’ “slobbering love affair” with Dear Leader is about to get challenged to the hilt.

    A dinner for organized crime.

    No less a parody of itself than a Mafia dinner from any grade Z movie.
