I predict that someone relatively respectable (not Bill Maher or one of the MSNBC buffoons) will sometime between now and Obama's defeat, blow a gasket and have an on air meltdown not too dissimilar from the latest bit of HBO liberal propaganda, the Newsroom.
I know a few journalists. Not guys like the Derb (for whom I have nothing but respect), but the kind of people who write "hard news". They all think they are smarter and more integral to our social processes than anyone else does. They are, as a rule, of unremarkable intelligence; but don't try telling them that. And I really think one of their higher profile brethren is going to copy that new HBO show because it's such an appealing delusion for them.
I think this is a particularly good piece on how the kind of delusion that show represents will actually end up hurting the very people who are trying to use it as a salve to mediate the pain of losing to the Tea Party. I highly recommend reading it, so you don't have to watch the actual show either. I had the chance last night but couldn't bring myself to do it.
