Dumb as Rocks

From Media Matters: On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist repeatedly mocked Sen. Barack Obama’s bowling performance -- which Scarborough called “dainty” -- at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania. Deriding Obama’s score, Scarborough said: “You know Willie, the thing is, Americans want their president, if it’s a man, to be a real man.” He added, “You get 150, you’re a man, or a good woman,” to which Geist replied, “Out of my president, I want a 150, at least.” After guest Harold Ford Jr. said that Obama’s bowling showed a “humble” and “human” side to him, Scarborough replied, “A very human side? A prissy side.”

Huh? Since when did bowling 150 make you a “real man”? Good grief, what monumental stupidity. During the last two presidential campaigns, the nitwits that constitute our “so-called liberal media” kept suggesting that George Bush would be “more fun to have a beer with.” You’d really think that the clusterfuck of the past eight years would have shamed them away from such nonsense. But no… as Bob Somerby put it so well some time ago: “let’s face it — nothing will ever stop this crew from bringing these brainless ideas to their work. Your pundit corps is dumb as a rock.”
