Jim Vandehei: the Art Vanderlay of Politico*

JIM VANDEHEI was the co-author of a Politico hit piece on Cheney.

Vanderhei was also on O'Reilly's show last week. Old Jim was all upset because Bill Sammon (Fox News Managing Editor) roughly said that the Main Stream Media HATED Sarah Palin. Not simply disagreed with her, but actually hated her.

Vanderlay was almost hysterical over Sammon's opinion. He accused Sammon of stepping outside his role as an unbiased reporter.

Why was Sammon, reporting on what he has found in the liberal press, outside his role? We never found out because Vandehei’s thinking was intellectually incoherent and dishonest

So I'm reading Vandehei, the supposed unbiased EDITOR at Politico, in a very long report on the former Veep. The usual suspects are very upset because the Cheney is once again leading the cogent criticisms of the Obama administration; and its pathetic responses to the war on Islamo-terrorism.

This is how Vandehei covers Biden: a man for whom the phrase “walking disaster” was invented.
“In an interview taped Saturday night for "Meet the Press," Biden unloaded on his predecessor, saying Cheney is "wrong," is "trying to rewrite history," and "either is misinformed or he is misinforming."
You'll note there are no pejoratives. No adjectives describing motive, malign or otherwise.

In the same piece, this is how he covers Cheney:
"Some nonpartisan national security analysts have called Cheney’s critiques distorted and even demagogic."
Really? Who are they? No names here. For all we know this is what Vandehei thinks.
"His natural temperament is goaded by his influential adviser, daughter Liz Cheney..."
Goaded eh? That's a loaded word don't you think Jim? The most obvious implication to be gleaned is that Cheney doesn't even really belive half the stuff he's saying because he has to be "goaded" into articulating it in public.
"But Cheney’s ability to influence policy — as opposed to influencing cable-news programming — may be dulled by his insensitivity to timing and penchant for rhetorical bombast..."
So Cheney is insensitive and bombastic -- unlike Biden I suppose.

Opinion opinion opinion Jim. Like Bill Salmon's opinion about the hatred of the legacy media for Sarah Palin

There then follows several paragraphs were Jim digs up numerous partisans to viciously attack Cheney as variously being: nuts, bitter, cavalier, unfair, a liar, surreal, outrageous, and indecent.

Note the language. It's hit after hit after hit.

Jim Vanderlay then concludes this first little bash Cheney cabal with this:
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann said in an e-mail to POLITICO that Cheney has been “shrill, totally unpatriotic and sounding more concerned with torture and interrogation than with results and intelligence.”
That's right. The EDITOR of Politico went to a raving loon for his opinion.

You think Art Vanderlay could not get more laughably and hopelessly biased. Think again.

His very next quote comes from a clown equal to Olbermann. You don't think that's possible? Oh, you've never heard of Andrew Sullivan. He of the Sarah Palin gynaecological obsession.

Not kidding folks. And the whole diatribe goes on for another whole page; on and on and on.

Jim Vandehei. You are a Democrat tool, a shill and a lousy stinking hypocrite to attack Bill Sammon.

*Art Vanderlay was the fictional alter ego of George Costanza, himself a fictional character on Seinfeld. Vanderlay was a Marine Biologist, invented by George to pick up women whom he thought would be more impressed with a Marine biologist than a loser.

Media liberals stroke themselves in barely viewed echo chamber

Newsbusters has a nice reveal on one Lizz Winstead. Lizz Who...stead, I hear you moan? Who she? More reveal later.

Talking to Joy Behar about Glenn Beck la Winstead whined:

"He should be institutionalized... First of all Glenn Beck, why is he even on television? I think it's somehow abusive to have Glenn Beck on TV because he seems mentally unstable."
Mentally unstable? Isn't that Behar and her former side-nutbag O'Donnell? Isn't that the nut calling the kettle mental?

But I digress. You gotta laugh. Lizz Whinestead, notice the two zees in Lizz. She's not your ususal boring ONE zee kinda gal. Nosireeebob.

This is what Lizz with a two Zee writes about herself. Ego? Much! Mentally unstable? You decide. Then deride.

Obama presidency unexpectedly* fails

By Melissa Shill and Melvin Hack
AP Political Writers
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Obama's poll numbers unexpectedly fell again this month, despite forecasts from experts that his socialist policies would soon prove wildly popular, like his Venezuelan comrade President Hugo Chavez.

This news follows an unexpectedly unpopular first year for Obama following his massive landslide victory in the November 2009 election.

Many experts in the media predicted that this would pave the way for the full implementation of Mr Obama's centrist policies. As expected Mr Obama blamed his predecessor, President Bush, for his unexpected failures.
*It has become a running joke amongst conservatives that the State Controlled Media, as epitomized by the AP, runs story after story on government produced monthly/yearly statistics on unemployment, economic growth, et al, where the results are always "unexpected.

Frank Rich is a big fat ugly toad. Dumb too.


Frank Rick is a British born Theater Critic, and old round big fat toad. Who cares, you ask? No one. Until he calls genuine American military hero "unpatriotic."

How brave of Frank Rich. I'd show photographic proof of his genuinely big fat ugly toad face, but I don't wish to offend sensitive readers.

Writing in the New York Times (1/31/10) in his usual style of socialist Manhattenite-elite pig-ignorance, Rich spluttered that:
John McCain epitomizes the unpatriotic opposition.
Of course, for Rich, any opposition to Obama is unpatriotic.

Well, you know Frank is such a hero. Really. He has been awarded a Queen's Medal for Sitting on his Arse. Who the queen was, I have no idea. But you get my drift.

Once, in the 1970s he had to sit through Endgame on the really uncomfortable seats at the Royal Court, London.

Now sitting through any Sam Beckett play is heroic to my mind, having done so a couple of times. But Rich had to seat in ... the cheap enemy seats right next to the smelly public and plebs!!!

Now that's heroic.

And when the character Hamm accidentally kicked some sand from the stage, it went right in Rich's eye.

Of course, being a theaterophile, Rich sat stoically for an hour until the play ended. Then, and only then, did he call on his man-servant Dick to remove the offending mini-mote from his eye. Now that takes real guts. Not some fake scheme to become famous like the glory hungry Audie Murphy.

And again heroic. Far more so than being chained and beaten in the Hanoi Hilton for six years. Like that fraud John McCain.

So arise Sir Frank Rich -- knight of some queen.
