On Obama's Rhetoric

World-Class Snark from the Economist

McMegan sends us to:

Semi-super Tuesday | Democracy in America | Economist.com: 11:06 : I should note, incidentally, that I'm at a small party with a gaggle of bloggers, and a New York Times reporter has just shown up to cover us covering the cable networks covering the returns. I've now covered her coverage of our coverage of their coverage, and this sentence is reflexive coverage of my coverage. If I recall correctly from my skimming of Godel, Escher, Bach and religious viewing of Doctor Who, this will create a strange loop that rends the fabric of the universe asunder.

11:01 : Who knows who will win Texas, but the pundits are already talking about a momentum shift, and they are making it pretty clear Mrs Clinton is staying in for a while, which probably means at least until Pennsylvania's April 22nd primary. On one hand: More live-blogging. On the other hand: more live-blogging....

10:49 : Holy hell, is that my TV, or is Tom Brokaw really bright red? I mean, it's fairly obvious that the anchors get progressively drunker over the course of these big primary nights, but I thought they had makeup people to conceal the evidence.....

10:31 : Once again, MSNBC anchors fill time by patting each other on the back (I'll refrain from using the idiom that first sprang to mind on a family blog) for their own clever little analogies....

9:06 : John McCain has had a lock on his party's nomination for a while, but it looks as though he has now officially sewn it up. According to blasphemous secular math, anyway....

8:48 : Chris Matthews recycles his botched quotation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's aphorism that "In the real dark night of the soul, it is always three o'clock in the morning", presumably hoping to persuade viewers, against all evidence, that he can read.

8:47 : Dear David Gregory, this is what "misnomer" means....

8:44 : Fox News is also reporting the impending Bush endorsement. Tough break for Mr McCain, but I guess it's best to get bad news out of the way early in the campaign...
