Politico home page becomes living self-parody of self-absorbed media
Politico hasn’t been this excited since Herman Cain.
Looking at the tweets from attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was nauseating enough.
Obama’s speech was fine, he had some good one liners and some cheap shots, but it certainly wasn’t the funniest speech ever:
I just witnessed our President deliver the funniest speech I have ever heard. #nerdprom

Even the nickname for the event — Nerd Prom — is nauseating. They are not nerds, but they like to think of themselves that way because it elevates them above the riff raff, a/k/a their readers and viewers.
People in tuxedos who should be in orange jumpsuits. #WHCD

It’s not right versus left, or old media versus new media. It’s the inside the D.C. Beltway crowd, who live there either physically or mentally, or want to.
There were tweets with photos of themselves from a few people I was going to embed, but what’s the point? It’s not an individual problem, it’s systemic.
I will, however, post this screen shot of Politico’s homepage, devoted almost in its entirety to stories about the event (h/t David). Can they possibly be more wrapped up in themselves?

Politico: Blather Clingers?
Pretend we still have the “Like” button and I just hit it 1,000,000 times! 🙂
Speaking of which, where did the like/not like buttons go?
The Professor’s new tech guy did an ‘oopsy’ and killed them. 🙁
Now former new tech guy killed it. The new new tech guy is working on it, but it’s proving more difficult than expected to restore.
Former? Yeah! 🙂
By the way Prof, you are still an ‘Associate Clinical Professor’ over at CI.
Not having the “thumbs down” and “thumbs up” clicks does seem to have cut way down on the TROLL interference here though….
Something to consider……..
Cult of personality.
With an emphasis on cult.
“All Cult – No Personality!”
It’s a Jour-Nal-Lister requirement!
After parties? Seriously?
Could they be any more self-absorbed?
Sarah Palin posted the best Tweet of all:
It must be so nice to be protected by the MSM at every turn. Obama can do no wrong. He can even say that he’s a “Socialist Muslim” or “God bless Planned Parenthood”.
Oh, let them have their fun. He won, I think he said. He’s about to lose a lot. The bitter clingers already dealt him a bad blow. Next is Benghazi and Boston. The partiers’ “slobbering love affair” with Dear Leader is about to get challenged to the hilt.
A dinner for organized crime.
No less a parody of itself than a Mafia dinner from any grade Z movie.
Shouldn’t that be turdprom?
I was going to suggest Dork Prom, but I think yours is much more concise.
