The Messiah acts like Hillary

Believing in that Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy:

GLAMOUR: An AP poll shows that while the positive ratings on Michelle are higher than those of Cindy McCain, her negative ratings are higher as well. I'm curious about how as a husband that makes you feel. Does it mystify you? And what do you want to say to those Americans who don't know the woman that you know?

SENATOR OBAMA: It's infuriating, but it's not surprising, because let's face it: What happened was that the conservative pressóFox News and the National Review and columnists of every ilkówent fairly deliberately at her in a pretty systematic way...and treated her as the candidate in a way that you just rarely see the Democrats try to do against Republicans. And I've said this before: I would never have my campaign engage in a concerted effort to make Cindy McCain an issue, and I would not expect the Democratic National Committee or people who were allied with me to do it. Because essentially, spouses are civilians. They didn't sign up for this. They're supporting their spouse. So it took a toll. If you start being subjected to rants by Sean Hannity and the like, day in day out, that'll drive up your negatives. (Link.)

But Hannity, FNC and National Review aren't John McCain, so most of Obama's rant is moot. But consider: Taking Obama's logic further, one could say that he is leading McCain in the polls only because of MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times, Keith Olbermann, etc. "day in day out."

In other words, when it comes to media coverage, Messiah, count your lucky stars you're a liberal Democrat -- 'cause that's the only place you're gonna get any sympathy for your whiny soliloquies.
