The Bootlicking Media

By Al Schumann on Tuesday November 23, 2010 01:24 AM

The latest churn in the news cycle is placing blame for possible travel delays on the victims of Obama's prurient security enhancements. People who object to virtual strip searches and perform the consumer equivalent of job actions are actually selfish. The delays will be their fault, not the fault of the thuggishly stupid policy makers.

This is typical of bootlickers. They lack the gall and the physical nerve to brutalize people themselves, but they feel comfortable dictating and delegitimizing the response to brutality. It's safe and it pays a salary. One would hope the self-loathing from that would be crushing, but they have their cognitive escape hatches. They're only "reporting" what they've been told.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
