If it’s true that cockroaches can survive a nuclear blast, I guess crickets can live through record setting blizzards.

Because that chirping sound you hear is coming from the general direction of Media Matters headquarters, in Washington, DC.

On Sunday, Time magazine’s Joe Klein wrote:

Those who celebrate Sarah Palin’s lack of knowledge as a form of “authenticity” superior to Barack Obama’s gloriously American mongrel ethnicity and self-made intellectuality are representatives of a long-standing American theme–the celebration of sameness, and mediocrity, in a country that has succeeded brilliantly because of its diversity and restlessly eccentric genius.

Almost 24 hours later, nobody at the George Soros Steno Pool apparently considers Klein’s comparison of the President to a dog worthy of comment.

Now, imagine if Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck had said something about Obama’s “mongrel ethnicity.” If you can, that is.

PS: is “self-made intellectuality” what the kids are calling “affirmative action” these days? Just askin’…

(PPS: language warning – approximately PG:13 rated)
