Over at Huffington Post I came across a jaw dropper on their front page and here it is with my notations:
Lanny Davis is a “Top Democrat”? Really?
Seriously, WTF. If this is true we are doomed. Lanny is a DC whore who will dance to any tune played by any piper who will pay Lanny’s fee. Jack Abramoff used to use Lanny to place stories in ‘respectable’ newspapers back in the day. The guy is an example of all that is wrong with Washington DC–left, right and center.
If he is a “Top Democrat” we are doomed.
Fortunately he is not. He is only a “Democrat” let alone a “Top Democrat” in the fevered imaginations of media whores everywhere. His main stock-in-trade is ginning up and/or commenting on freshly invented “Clinton Wars”, especially if the imagined spat is between a mythical “Camp Clinton” and real Democrats and/or real progressives.
This meme is irresistible to
fools the media. “Clinton Wars” are catnip for cable teevee and lazy online eyeball collectors and so Lanny will always get a hype bump and a little scratch. That’s fine. Lanny and the rest of the pundit celebrities should be able to fleece the gullible–it is how they make their grifter living after all, but please, let’s not pretend that any of these wankers are “top” anything. They are bottom feeders, one and all.
And yes, please treat this small rant about a small man as an open thread.
