The proclivity of left bloggers to embrace establishment figures when they say something agreeable annoys. For example, from the MyDD site (but I saw similar words elsewhere):
Only three years ago, Chris Matthews announced that the only Americans who didn't like the President were "real whack-jobs, maybe on the left."
But finally, on the eve of Bush's departure, Matthews finally summons the gumption to criticize our commander-in-chief.
Followed by a YouTube clip of Matthews spewing whatever hot air he spewed. Matthews is an asshole with a media megaphone that allows him to drown out the rest of us with his small opinions. He's not a menu with some good meals and some bad meals.
Also Bush isn't, and was never, our "commander in chief." Nor will Obama be. It's in the U.S. Constitution, duh.
