Jimmy Orr of the Christian Science Monitor finds the perfect analogy to describe John McCain’s reaction to how the media has been treating Sarah Palin:
It’s just like the old Huey Lewis song from “Back to the Future” where the occasional doo-wop performer sings about going back in time.
Because hearing John McCain this morning sticking up for Sarah Palin makes it feel like the 2008 campaign season again. It’s like McCain has morphed into Marty McFly. And Palin is perhaps, George McFly. And the media, maybe, is Biff.
Dude, at a time when people are questioning the relevance of the media, the best you can manage is Huey Freaking Lewis from a 1985 movie soundtrack?
What, no comment about how Michelle Obama is one of the “Sisters (Doin’ It For Themselves)”? The birthers want to know if POTUS44 was “Born in the USA.” Was a certain governor Romancing the Stone?
Stretched political analogies to 1980s pop culture make the Czar weep.
P.S. Occasional? WTF?
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
