16 years ago, when Clinton made the entitled elites mad by wrestling the power from them, the Vast Right Wing Coalition was born as a response.It was a curious hodge podge of people where KKK figures from Arkansas found themselves joining forces with billionaires like Scaiffe or snobs like Sally Queen and Maureen Dowd.
The same crew that engineered and cheered on the impeachment went on to dump on Gore and enable the Bush coups in 2000 and 2004. The pundit class of VRWC gave Bush a free pass for the past 8 years. In fact, for the first 4 years they tried to blame everything on Clinton (the surplus, the loss of surplus, 9.11 and W’s lack of popularity.
Tim Russert, Chris Mathews and other original VRWC members went on to dump on Kerry in 2004 enabling Bush’s second theft.
It was little surprise that the old crew would be back to attack Hillary – joined by other old VRWC-ers such as Arianna, Paglia, Noonan plus fresh blood as ex GOP-ers Moulitzas and Avrosis and Keith Olberman.
I also was not surprised to see that they were hiding their Clinton Derangement Syndrome (CDS) behind a love for the new guy – it just seemed more legitimate.
I am just wondering – is this holding pattern of Bushie like adoration just making sure no surprises happen to Denver? Will then the media go back to their old master?
Because if not, one has to wonder why Bush’s cheerleaders are now Obama’s.
Who is holding their leash on this one?
if there’s one thing I learned in the past 16 years – if the media is behind someone,
it’s never for the good guys.
