Thanks, librul media!

As you enjoy all the fun of a New York tabloid shaking its fist at the treasonous scum atop the pond water of American politics, be sure to read the not-so-fine print on the front page:

Regardless of President Obama’s fecklessness in negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran, 47 Republican U.S. senators engaged in treachery by sending a letter to the mullahs aimed at cutting the legs out from under America’s commander-in-chief.*

Ready to work on your content analysis skills over spring break, kids? Try searching for stories containing "feckless*" and "bush at Fox News before Jan. 20, 2009 (if you get one, you're doing it right). Now search the Washington Times, same terms, same dates:

During her wide-ranging interview with The Times, the secretary also said that boycotting the Summer Olympics in Beijing would be an ineffective way to address China’s “troublesome policies” and called the U.S. boycott of the 1980 games in Moscow “feckless.”

If true, and if ABC’s fact-checkers are not diligent in verifying Mr. Clarke’s stories and claims, the mini-series will be the September 11 commission’s dream come true: The Bush administration will be blamed for September 11, the feckless moral cowardice of the Clinton administration will be disguised and Mr. Clarke and Mr. O’Neill — in my view, two principal authors of September 11 — will be beatified.

If you're still looking for an AEJ paper, you could have some fun with the sorts of nouns and adjectives reserved for certain political figures. But onward. The first clause in the editorial's second graf doesn't appear in the 1A blurb, for some reason:

We join GOP signatories in opposing the pact as outlined, but we strenuously condemn their betrayal of the U.S. constitutional system.

But you should still come away with the main idea intact: Don't trust the feckless Kenyan! It almost makes you long for the straightforward jingoism of the Fair 'n' Balanced Network.

* Do us all a favor and cut it out with this one, all right? The country doesn't have a commander in chief. The armed forces do.
