With Sarah’s Magical Mystery Tour hitting the road this week, the media elite have been falling all over themselves in their futile attempts to somehow ascertain her political itinerary, and of course, to hopefully win some long sought after face time with this housewife from Wasilla. Isn’t it a bit strange that the notoriously Left-leaning legions of talking heads and propaganda puppets are scurrying after the very lady they have consistently treated as beneath contempt? How very vexing for them, that for the first time in any American political campaign, our media masters must serve as the simpering sycophants, and horror of horrors, must do so with a conservative woman from the wilds of Alaska.
What a scene, as cars and vans loaded with media monkeys raced after Governor Palin’s tour bus as it made its way up I-95. The Washington Post, LA Times, NY Times, Time Magazine, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Politico, and the Daily Beast, all chasing after the irrepressible Mrs. Palin. But at the same time that the Politburo was choking back bus fumes on I-95, Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren was comfortably interviewing the Governor from inside her tour bus.
The whole mind-boggling scenario was aptly described in this snotty piece from the LA Times.
There are few things more sweet to Palin and her fervent supporters cheering their TV sets this week than the image of a hungry know-it-all “lamestream media” caravan of 15 or more vehicles traipsing along behind her red-white-and-blue bus enroute to they-know-not-where to do they-know-not-what.
To make it worse, each one of the frustrated, confused chasers knows that Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren is riding along with the not-yet-and-possibly-never Republican presidential candidate, filing exclusive conversations for her audience to gobble up that only enhance Palin’s already million-dollar value to FNC. Can you hear the teeth grinding? While Palin smiles and waves away?
PBS’ Nightly News Hour this evening also devoted a segment to the Palin pandemonium. We can but laugh.
Mrs. Palin is giving some well-deserved payback to the people who have done everything in their power to destroy her politically and personally. So keep grinding those teeth, boys and girls—your little power planet has just spun itself out of orbit.
