So I have a theory. Mind you I’m in no position to prove this, but tell me if this sounds too far fetched.

On Tuesday morning at9:30 EST progressive media “watch dog” Media Matters blogged against the Harvard professor and Financial Times columnist Niall Ferguson for writing a column which compared Barack Obama to Felix the Cat.


Media Matters took issue with Ferguson’s lead:

President Barack Obama reminds me of Felix the Cat. One of the best-loved cartoon characters of the 1920s, Felix was not only black. He was also very, very lucky. And that pretty much sums up the 44th president of the US as he takes a well-earned summer break after just over six months in the world’s biggest and toughest job.

Then, on Tuesday night on MSNBC look who leftist demagogue Keith Olbermann singled out for the Silver in his Worst Persons segment:

Olbermann attacked Ferguson as a “cliched racist imagery user.”

Media Matters and Olbermann are really pushing it here. This is a racist attack on the President? Ferguson, author of highbrow books like The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World is a racist?

Is Media Matters blogging about the “story” in the morning and Olbermann broadcasting about it in the evening a coincidence? I doubt it. The answer is clear: Olbermann’s producers troll Media Matters for his Worst Persons story. This is a clear indication of the organization’s well-developed ability to project poison into the political consciousness.

All this brings to mind a different cartoon cat which seems an apt description of Olbermann. Hopefully he won’t brand me a “racist” for this one:
