Divorced From RealityBoo fucking hoo ...
In a press roundtable at the National Press Club tonight, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow led a discussion with White House correspondents about the impact of the internet on their respective jobs. Their conclusion? They don't like being challenged by blogs.
NBC News' David Gregory bemoaned how political coverage has "become so polarized in this country…because it's the internet and the blogs that have really used this White House press conferences to somehow support positions out in America, political views." Tony Snow admitted he sometimes reads blogs ("I'll occasionally punch it up") only to find "wonderful, imaginative hateful stuff that comes flying out."
Newsweek's White House correspondent Richard Wolffe added, "[Bloggers] want us to play a role that isn't really our role. Our role is to ask questions and get information. … It's not a chance for the opposition to take on the government and grill them to a point where they throw their hands up and surrender."
I still say that if the late Mike Royko had been alive these last 6 years to tag team with recently deceased Molly Ivins, there isn't a single sonofabitch in Washington -- Democrat, Republican, or MSM journalist -- that could escape neither the oceans of contempt they are being righteously assailed with from us American bloggers nor their own unilateral and public tar-and-feathering that's sure to follow next IF THEY DON'T GET THEIR FUCKING 6-FIGURE COLLECTING SHIT TOGETHER!
We don't have to be working (those of us still clinging to jobs that haven't been outsourced yet) to keep the economy going only to come home to do your fuckin' jobs for free with our blogs, you self-righteous bunch of whiny assholes. On the contrary, work and blogging is the only things -- THE ONLY THINGS -- holding us all back from exercising our 2nd Amendment and declaring OPEN SEASON on all you rotten, thieving, crooked, corrupt-ass, incompetent bastards, your lobbyists, and your goddamned office freezers.
So you Washington D.C. elitist fuckheads in politics and the MSM have better start your every morning for the next few years down on your knees praying a sincere prayer of thanks to any god or goddess you believe in that we bloggers have remained and still remain that goddamned civil for the time being before opening your mouth to give Jeff Gannon style lip-service to the collective Washington cock only to turn around and spit the repugnant payload in our collective faces.
Every day is fragile -- so fragile that we, THE REAL DECIDERS, could decide to quit our jobs, turn off our blogs, throw all pretense of civility to the wind, and bring civil war to you. The day that happens is the same day the Big collective Washington cock isn't the last thing you'll be choking on the business end of.
That's a cold promise.
