One imporant point about that New Yorker Eastwooding Cover.....

You are not of the body!

Star Trek: The return of the Archons 1967

A lot has been said and writ­ten about this New Yorker cover

But there is one thing that I’d like to add to the conversation.

When I saw this cover, my first thought wasn’t, of Clint East­wood, nor the President’s debate per­for­mance or even how impor­tant it is for the left to acknowl­edge the debate as it was rather than com­ing up with Rom­ney Cheat­ing non­sense, Jim Lehrer cri­tiques or racial the­o­ries con­cern­ing the performance.

My first thought was this:

That’s clever, I won­der who did the phony cover?

Pon­der that for a moment, My instincts told me that cover could NOT have been the actual New Yorker cover, that our friends on the left were inca­pable of this kind of cri­tique of the pres­i­dent, that given the last sev­eral years the idea that one could poke fun at Barack Obama in any sub­stan­tive fash­ion that didn’t involve how bright or won­der­ful he was, sim­ply did not exist in the lib­eral mind­set. In my mind it would be as for­eign to them and as unthink­able as would des­e­cra­tion of the sacra­men­tal Host of the Body of Christ would be to me.

I looked at the politico story con­cern­ing this, I wanted to know how our lib­eral friends were react­ing, there were zingers such as “they should have drawn and empty chair in one side and Pinoc­chio in the other” to the fan­tas­tic “Obama threw it in pur­pose, it will help him.” But out of 34 com­ments I saw only two attack­ing the New Yorker (and one of the two was from a gen­tle­man of the right being ironic.

That it took until I saw the cover on the New Yorker’s own site to believe it says more about the last 4 years and the media than any­thing else, and it explains why Greg Sargent’s non­sense about “unem­ploy­ment truthers” and “panic” is just that.

The real­ity is we have seen a MSM so biased toward this admin­is­tra­tion that OF COURSE we reflec­tively assume that such a cover had to be parody

We have reached a point with this administration’s men­dac­ity is so great that of course we don’t buy their last-​minute “mirac­u­lous” jobs report.

So if Greg “I’ll pub­lish any­thing media mat­ters gives me”, Or Dave “Yes I was part of Journo­list but Stacy & DaT­e­chGuy still like me” Weigel want to cre­ate a “Brither/​Truther” meme go ahead. Let the atlantic and Think Progress and all of the far left join you.

I sus­pect Jack Welch as for­mer head of GE has more cred­i­bil­ity on the issue than all of you put together.

I am doing noth­ing more than rais­ing the ques­tion,” Mr. Welch said. “It’s fact-​based.”

Here are Mr. Welch’s facts. To hold the unem­ploy­ment rate even as the pop­u­la­tion grows, he said, the econ­omy needs to add between 150,000 and 200,000 jobs a month.

We haven’t reached those num­bers at all,” Mr. Welch said. Employ­ers added a sea­son­ally adjusted 114,000 jobs in Sep­tem­ber, down from a revised 142,000 jobs in August. The econ­omy, how­ever, has added 143,000 jobs a month after revi­sions this year.

Your reac­tion and the New Yorker Cover have become ample proof that the emperor not only has no clothes, but even those in the court are now will­ing to say it.

And THAT is a game changer.

Sorta Update: (after post sched­uled but before it posted) It looks like Pow­er­line & the Anchoress got there before me and this quote from Neo Neo­con says it all:

Free­dom of the press is one of the lib­er­ties for which Amer­i­cans have fought and died, and yet the free press freely entered into this arrange­ment, of its own free will — in order to get “access,” a place at the very best cock­tail par­ties, and to fur­ther their self-​appointed mis­sion of “telling a con­flicted peo­ple a higher truth.”

You are not of the body!

Star Trek: The return of the Archons 1967

A lot has been said and written about this New Yorker cover

But there is one thing that I’d like to add to the conversation.

When I saw this cover, my first thought wasn’t, of Clint Eastwood, nor the President’s debate performance or even how important it is for the left to acknowledge the debate as it was rather than coming up with Romney Cheating nonsense, Jim Lehrer critiques or racial theories concerning the performance.

My first thought was this:

That’s clever, I wonder who did the phony cover?

Ponder that for a moment, My instincts told me that cover could NOT have been the actual New Yorker cover, that our friends on the left were incapable of this kind of critique of the president, that given the last several years the idea that one could poke fun at Barack Obama in any substantive fashion that didn’t involve how bright or wonderful he was, simply did not exist in the liberal mindset. In my mind it would be as foreign to them and as unthinkable as would desecration of the sacramental Host of the Body of Christ would be to me.

I looked at the politico story concerning this, I wanted to know how our liberal friends were reacting, there were zingers such as “they should have drawn and empty chair in one side and Pinocchio in the other” to the fantastic “Obama threw it in purpose, it will help him.” But out of 34 comments I saw only two attacking the New Yorker (and one of the two was from a gentleman of the right being ironic.

That it took until I saw the cover on the New Yorker’s own site to believe it says more about the last 4 years and the media than anything else, and it explains why Greg Sargent’s nonsense about “unemployment truthers” and “panic” is just that.

The reality is we have seen a MSM so biased toward this administration that OF COURSE we reflectively assume that such a cover had to be parody

We have reached a point with this administration’s mendacity is so great that of course we don’t buy their last-minute “miraculous” jobs report.

So if Greg “I’ll publish anything media matters gives me”, Or Dave “Yes I was part of Journolist but Stacy & DaTechGuy still like me” Weigel want to create a “Brither/Truther” meme go ahead. Let the atlantic and Think Progress and all of the far left join you.

I suspect Jack Welch as former head of GE has more credibility on the issue than all of you put together.

“I am doing nothing more than raising the question,” Mr. Welch said. “It’s fact-based.”

Here are Mr. Welch’s facts. To hold the unemployment rate even as the population grows, he said, the economy needs to add between 150,000 and 200,000 jobs a month.

“We haven’t reached those numbers at all,” Mr. Welch said. Employers added a seasonally adjusted 114,000 jobs in September, down from a revised 142,000 jobs in August. The economy, however, has added 143,000 jobs a month after revisions this year.

Your reaction and the New Yorker Cover have become ample proof that the emperor not only has no clothes, but even those in the court are now willing to say it.

And THAT is a game changer.

Sorta Update: (after post scheduled but before it posted) It looks like Powerline & the Anchoress got there before me and this quote from Neo Neocon says it all:

Freedom of the press is one of the liberties for which Americans have fought and died, and yet the free press freely entered into this arrangement, of its own free will—in order to get “access,” a place at the very best cocktail parties, and to further their self-appointed mission of “telling a conflicted people a higher truth.”
