Screen grab of the day

Posted by: ST on November 20, 2008 at 7:16 pm

In part of fulfilling his “duty” to help the incoming administration succeed, Chris Matthews celebrated Barack Obama with a toast alongside Ellen DeGeneres today on her show:

MATTHEWS, picking up shot glass: “To Barack Obama!”
DEGENERES, toasting: “Yeah. To Barack Obama!”

Here’s the video:

Hat tip for the screen grab, video, and partial play by play to Geoffrey Dickens at Newsbusters, who has the complete transcript of the Obama “thrill up my leg” lovefest.

    CNN is getting in on the lovefest!!

    Check out how they spin Obama’s actions thus far!

    Schneider: A sign of new politics?

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — What’s the significance of Obama sending Rahm Emanuel to meet with Republican leaders of Congress?

    It’s one more piece of evidence that President-elect Obama intends to pursue a new kind of politics.

    Oh please. Obama screamed about change for almost two years and once elected he hired every Washington insider with decades of service as his staff. Yeah, that’s change.

    Now Obama sends the man he’s named as his White House Chief of Staff to meet with Republican leaders of Congress.

    Emanuel said he hopes the meetings will spread “good will for ideas from both parties to solve challenges.

    Riiiiiiight. We’ll see how long the “good will” lasts when a Republican dares to disagree, or even question, the exalted one.

    Obama was born at the tail end of the Baby Boom. The new generation he brings to power – some call it “Generation O” — does not identify with the left-right battles of the sixties.

    Oh, my sides.

    Ahhhhh, CNN does it’s part to “help the administration” any way it can, by lying for it. This is just the beginning.

  2. Thanks, ST. I haven’t even had my dinner yet. :-&

    Here’s a good one:

    Judge Leon’s Guantanamo Ruling: Now We Look Like America

    A federal judge appointed by President Bush has ordered that five Algerian enemy combatants be released from Guantanamo Bay prison saying that for seven years they waited for the legal system to give them an answer. It is about time. A sixth suspect was ordered held because the government said it had enough evidence to prove he had ties to Al Qaeda.

    Yes, Ellen, it’s about time!! God forbid we keep enemy combatants who tried to kill U.S. soldiers in prison!! The horror!!!

    The idea that America has held people for seven years without a trial is something that Americans cannot be proud of. Many people have died for our freedoms and our system of justice.

    Oh, but I am proud Ellen, so please don’t presume to speak for millions of Americans who you have never met. These men weren’t picked up at an Arab market buying fish for God’s sake! What is wrong with this woman?!?!?

    U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon asked that the government refrain from trying to appeal the decision. He is right.

    Oh, by all means, I hope they appeal it. Once again we see that if it is a liberal’s opinion then it is right. No questions asked. Don’t dare to disagree with them, they know more than you, peasant!!

    Let these men have their lives back and let this be a lesson to the Bush administration that there is a real system in place for justice. It prevailed today, albeit very late.

    Yes, Ellen, let’s all wish them a warm adieu and pray that they don’t return to their terrorist ways, like we all know they will. But, hey, what do you care Ellen? I mean, the odds are they won’t kill anyone dear to you, so why not play the odds on this one, right?

    He has listened to the classified evidence and he has clearly seen enough of “trial by law enforcement” and not by the courts.

    Yes, because we all know that judges NEVER make a mistake and are ALWAYS right!!! Indeed, let us take up the proven failure of fighting terrorism with law enforcement, which actually does work most of the time. Then again, there was that one little failure of law enforcement to stop terrorism. What was that again? OH, that’s right, it was called 9/11. What’s 3,000 innocent lives compared to locking up 5 Algerian terrorists for 7 years? Rejoice!!!

    Sleep tight America!!
