The Democratic Panic
Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kay Hagan and Other Candidates Avoid Obama

After a few days of trying to ignore the question, Michelle Nunn, the Democratic candidate for the United States Senate in Georgia, acknowledged on Friday that she had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. By this year’s standards, that’s pretty forthright, especially compared with Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democrat running for the Senate in Kentucky, who refuses to discuss her presidential vote.

…The panicky Democratic flight away from President Obama — and from some of the party’s most important positions — is not a surprise. Mr. Obama remains highly unpopular among white voters, particularly in Southern states where candidates like Ms. Nunn, Ms. Grimes and several others are struggling to establish leads.

But one of the reasons for his unpopularity is that nervous members of his own party have done a poor job of defending his policies over the nearly six years of his presidency, allowing a Republican narrative of failure to take hold.

Crackers in the South, weak Party apostles, DAMN Republicans controlling the airwaves obscuring the Boy Genius’s incredible gifts unto His People…

ALL the dog-whistles save WYMMINS in ONE spectacular, water-carrying paragraph?! Oh, well done!

    1) A journalist may not injure a Democrat or, through inaction, allow a Democrat to come to harm.

    2) A journalist must obey the orders given to it by Democrats, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

    3) A journalist must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

    with apologies to the good Dr.

    They are ignoring The Zeroth Law, aelfheld:

    “A journalist may not harm humanity”

    I think the good Dr. would stand and applaud, aelf.

    I am struck by something much more primal, however – call it Directive 4, which shuts down all functions in the JournoCops whenever they try to disobey it: “A journalist is always the underdog crusader.”

    They are addicted to this narrative and self-image at all costs. They MUST be the eternal Prometheans showing the way to enlightenment at great personal risk – though it cost them all they have they soldier on bravely, bravely, forever fighting The Power of Darkness.

    Explains everything, really: the whole “what liberal bias” routine, how they fetishize what they do (which is merely to tell us what other people do), their utter refusal to notice that the only ones who pay professionally or socially are the ones they themselves punish for journalistic apostasy… examples are far too numerous to put in a combox.

    One wonders what would happen if they honestly tried to answer one question: how exactly are you still the noble underdogs?

    I mean, after a solid 150 years of this, you’d think they’d have either won or been exterminated. But no, they’re eternally feared, eternally outsiders, yet somehow never actually crushed underfoot by these powers that so hate them.

    Subtle they’re not.
