Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

DEM/MSM: Not Having A Wonderful Time


CNN's Anderson Cooper gets thumped-on in Egypt:

Anderson Cooper was attacked in Egypt Wednesday.

CNN producer Steve Brusk Tweeted, "Anderson said he was punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration."

Cooper then escaped to the roof of a nearby building, where he said on air that he and his crew were trying to get to a neutral zone between protestors and pro-Mubarak supporters when they "were set upon by pro-Mubarak supporters punching us in the head. The crowd kept growing, kept throwing punches, kicks...suddenly a young man would look at you and punch you in the face."

CNN's Christine Amanpour (from her blog) -- whom the Egyptians should love because she sympathizes with Islam predominantly, is from the Left and CNN -- gets threatened:
As we were trying to film on the bridge into Tahrir Square an angry mob of pro-Mubarak protesters surrounded us and chased us into the car, shouting that they hated us and America.

We jumped into our car but some of the protesters kicked in the car doors and broke our windshield as we drove away.

The worst clashes since Friday erupted today in Cairo with pro- and anti-Mubarak mobs facing off in Liberation Square. Shots have been fired and there have been reports of injuries.

And our embracing, all-revelatory, transparency-loving White House shuts out reporters, who have filed formal complaints:
After being shut out of the President’s Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) is appealing to the White House to give the press corps access to an event that’s been called one of the President’s most important foreign policy priorities for almost a year – the signing of the START Treaty. In a letter to Press Sec. Robert Gibbs, the WHCA Board complained about their lack of access to the President throughout the crisis in Egypt and outlined their request to open today’s treaty signing to the White House pool.

Ah yes, does the phrase "reaping what one sows" potentially come into play at this point, do you suspect?

Please excuse the giggling schadenfreude. There. Done.

I marvel at the liberals attitude towards Islamics, they actually think they share some affinity with them and I can't for the life of me figure out why, liberals complain about "the man's"(i think that means western culture in general) treatment of women, gays, criminals et al. yet ignore the islamics treatment of their gays, women, and criminals. the moderate west gets vilified, the radical hate filled Muslims get a thumbs up, what's up with that? wuz there some secret meeting I missed somewhere?

Vitriolic speech by American right-wingers obviously incited this Egyptian mob to violence.

I can't muster any sympathy for Anderson Cooper. After all, he works for the Caliphate News Network.

It's not that hard to figure out. They all share a common enemy. The United States, Jews and Christians.

If he can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen.

Did he honestly believe he would find fellow libs welcoming him with open arms?

Jinksto is right.

No tears will be shed. Hee....Oops! Did I just laugh? Yep, sure did!

Scotty: "They all share a common enemy. The United States, Jews and Christians."

There may be more truth to that than anyone would much care to admit.
