Patrick Kennedy gets frothy at the mouth because he thinks the media are spending too much time covering the whole Massa Mess and not enough time on the war in Afghanistan.
Sister Toldja makes the following observation:
He sort of has a point. The media coverage of Massa has indeed been over the top at times. But where have similar complaints from him been over the issue of healthcare “reform” taking precedence in the MSM over the war in Afghanistan? Answer: Nowhere, as he hasn’t complained about it at all, and we know why: because it not only was his dad’s pet issue but is also our fearless “leader’s” signature issue as well.
But, you know what? We can’t really blame the MSM for focusing on healthcare “reform” over all other issues – even MassaGate – especially when you consider that shoving healthcare “reform” down the throats of the American people has been Priority One in this administration from day one, even more important than (non-govt) job creation and, you guessed it, Afghanistan. Fortunately, the Prez. eventually ended up putting Afghanistan on the 1st-year priority list (somewhere in the top 10) but (non-govt) job creation? Not so much.
Kennedy does seem to be taking a fine time to assign priority to Afghanistan. Then again, I can also imagine that he has an instictual desire to divert media attention away from Democratic scandals — it’s probably in the blood.
