This is a perfect example of what is bothering me:

"I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above - above the
world, he's sort of God."  Newsweek editor Evan Thomas, on MSNBC:



This comment was uttered by a mainstream media person, to Chris Matthews,
another mainstream media guy, on Hardball, a mainstream media show.  Where
is the shrieking outrage?  Where is the ridicule?  Will we now say
The mainstream media are not doing their job.  They are the new pigs.

The big difference between Obama and god is that Obama doesn't go away the
minute I stop believing.
