Like an angry parent scolding a misbehaving toddler, the newspaper of record has a difficult time concealing their impatience with free-thinking people who have the audacity to not leap like lemmings into the abyss of left-wing madness that is so carefully cultivated for them.
|Hey, It Has To Be Big to Get to San Francisco |
In this latest demonstration of the Times' displeasure with current resistance to their Big Plans for us, communist capo reporter Jeff Zeleny (Heil!) goes to great lengths to try to smear the new Speaker of the House John Boehner, who I know nothing about and really don't care to.
The title of Zeleny's article kind of says it all: "Incoming Speaker Takes Commercial Flight, But Skips the Pat Down."
After all the condemnation about Pelosi's personal use of a giant military jet, it was only natural that Boehner would opt out of going down a similar road. Praiseworthy enough. That the second in line to the Presidency would be spared the indignity of having his nuts fondled by the high-school dropouts at the Gestapo Security Administration would seem an obvious and deserved courtesy to any rational observer, but for the psychos at the Times it is a pitiful excuse to swipe lamely at the detested Tea Partyer, and at the same time attempt to justify Pelosi's excesses :
" At a Capitol Hill news conference after Election Day, as Mr. Boehner began laying out the changes he would make when he becomes House Speaker, he announced that he would continue to fly commercial airlines (usually Delta) back to Ohio. It was a not-so-subtle dig at the outgoing Democratic speaker,Nancy Pelosi of California, who had been criticized by Republicans for flying military airplanes when she returned home to San Francisco."
For some reason, the Times updated this article on nytimes.com a little while ago, and left out these words which appeared in today's print edition:
" In a time of economic difficulty, it was a not-so-subtle dig at Ms. Pelosi, who has access to a military jet large enough to avoid refueling for her flights home to San Francisco."
Oops. With that single sentence, the Times puts its lefty foot in its mouth, at once confirming the reasonableness of Boehner's actions, and attempting to justify Pelosi's.
