Somebody buy Brendan Nyhan a clue

Because this is one of the dumb­est things I’ve ever seen:

One of the least remarked upon aspects of the Obama pres­i­dency has been the lack of scan­dals. Since Water­gate, pres­i­den­tial and exec­u­tive branch scan­dal has been an inescapable fea­ture of the Amer­i­can pres­i­dency, but the cur­rent admin­is­tra­tion has not yet suf­fered a major scandal…

Yup there is absolutely no sign at all of any­thing even resem­bling the least bit of some­thing you can even think of call­ing a scan­dal or even con­sid­er­ing refer­ring to as scan­dal in the Obama admin­is­tra­tion.

I would like to point out to Mr. Nyhan that instapun­dit is a link aggre­ga­tion site, so each of those links actu­ally go to OTHER SITES that have been cov­er­ing scan­dals that Nr. Nyhan hasn’t noticed. J. Chris­t­ian Adams, Black Pan­thers, ATF, Eric Holder? Never heard of them.…tell me Bren­dan how do you define a scandal?

…which I define as a wide­spread elite per­cep­tion of wrongdoing.

The elites? Your wait­ing for the elites? The same elites who ignored the John Edwards Scan­dal, are you actu­ally kid­ding me?

To see how absolutely blind he is you have to read this section

In the 1977 – 2008 period, the longest that a pres­i­dent has gone with­out hav­ing a scan­dal fea­tured in a front-​page Wash­ing­ton Post arti­cle is 34 months – the period between when Pres­i­dent Bush took office in Jan­u­ary 2001 and the Valerie Plame scan­dal in Octo­ber 2003. Obama has already made it almost as long despite the lack of a com­pa­ra­ble event to the Sep­tem­ber 11 ter­ror­ist attacks. Why?

You are defin­ing the absence of a scan­dal based on the Wash­ing­ton Post?MSM media organ that would rather crawl on bro­ken glass than hit Obama, the home of the Journolist?

Only a per­son totally clue­less in media real­ity could have writ­ten this, which guar­an­tees the MSM will pick this up and run with it boldly.

Because this is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen:

One of the least remarked upon aspects of the Obama presidency has been the lack of scandals. Since Watergate, presidential and executive branch scandal has been an inescapable feature of the American presidency, but the current administration has not yet suffered a major scandal…

Yup there is absolutely no sign at all of anything even resembling the least bit of something you can even think of calling a scandal or even considering referring to as scandal in the Obama administration.

I would like to point out to Mr. Nyhan that instapundit is a link aggregation site, so each of those links actually go to OTHER SITES that have been covering scandals that Nr. Nyhan hasn’t noticed. J. Christian Adams, Black Panthers, ATF, Eric Holder? Never heard of them….tell me Brendan how do you define a scandal?

…which I define as a widespread elite perception of wrongdoing.

The elites? Your waiting for the elites? The same elites who ignored the John Edwards Scandal, are you actually kidding me?

To see how absolutely blind he is you have to read this section

In the 1977-2008 period, the longest that a president has gone without having a scandal featured in a front-page Washington Post article is 34 months – the period between when President Bush took office in January 2001 and the Valerie Plame scandal in October 2003. Obama has already made it almost as long despite the lack of a comparable event to the September 11 terrorist attacks. Why?

You are defining the absence of a scandal based on the Washington Post? A MSM media organ that would rather crawl on broken glass than hit Obama, the home of the Journolist?

Only a person totally clueless in media reality could have written this, which guarantees the MSM will pick this up and run with it boldly.
