NYT’s (Stomach-Turning) Obama Fawning

Just when you thought the New York Times could not delve any lower into lickspittle sycophancy we find this display on their “Opinion” page:

The Inauguration. At Last.

by Maira Kalman

January 29, 2009

(Click images to enlarge)

Even the restrooms along the New Jersey Turnpike are now cleaner.

And of course the image of Mr. Bush leaving via helicopter is just so subtle.

Have you no sense of decency, Mr. Sulzberger, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?

Still, it is all too fitting that The Times is now addressing its readers in cartoon.

    It’s good to know we are smart again, and sexy again. Now, THAT’s leadership.

    omg – there are just no words to use for this idiotic, insulting, immature, petty, juvenile, unsophisticated, daft, dull, imbecilic, boring, moronic, insane, derogatory, disrespectful, insolent, offensive, repulsive, rude, uncivil, base, contemptable, frivolous, inferior, irrelevant, measly, minor, paltry, shallow and trifling drivel.

    Ok, maybe I found a word or two.

    Stomach-turning is right. This is the kind of mindless worship that Hitler and Stalin grew accustomed to after they came to power, only they were forcing the matter. Obama worshipers aren’t happy that a new president is in the Oval Office now, they’re happy to be the loyal subject of a new king. This Maya Angelou cartoon should be painfully out of place in a national newspaper, but sadly, it’s right at home in the NYT, which seems to be run by the DNC.

      Hitler and Stalin….maybe but Mussolini with his arms cross and smug smile; OOOOH YEAH!!
      Most definitely Obama Mussolini!!!

    Is the NYT now a children’s book? It certainly doesn’t appear to be a newspaper that reports actual news.

    ‘scuse me while I go barf…

    Wow.
    University schools of journalism recommend that students do a great deal of reading.
    The must-reads include the Wall Street Journal or The Economist or the New York Times for the quality of the writing and for the information gleaned from those publications. Local papers are to be avoided, as they are usually examples of crappy writing.
    Even if the Times goes juvenile picturebook, it will still be required reading for the liberal indoctrination in case a student has made it as far as college without being swayed to swing liberal.

    So, for eight years we hear that George Bush is dumb, simplistic, unnuanced (is that a word?), too linear, crude, childish, unsophisticated, unintellectual, and unable to process or understand anything above the level of the newspaper comics page.

    And now we get this kindergarten-level essay on “feeling sexy again”.

    Who’s the dummy, exactly?

  7. beautyofreason says:

    First, the liberals make a fuss about the importance of free expression – for their side and subsidized by the government. They whine to defend taxpayer supported pet projects, including photographing a crucifix in urine, and pasting elephant poo and porno mags into a collage of the virgin Mary.

    Now that Obama is in office, we’re spoon fed propaganda art that is comparable to Soviet realism. Even painted duplicates of the campaign posters. Hypocrisy.

    “I feel pretty!
    Oh so pretty!
    I feel pretty and witty and GAY!!!

    And I pity
    Any dimwit who isn’t me today

    I feel charming
    Oh so charming
    It’s alarming how charming I feel!….

    I feel sexy
    Oh so sexy………

    La,la,la, as I skip away….to find my unicorns….

    GAG! – What’s “art” with out poetry and song?

  9. Reality Bytes says:

    Like Sex In The City, the NYT is spews the preverbial Free Milk From A Cow. Imagine their reporting if they actually get the Democrats’ Bail Out Dough! It’ll never happen though. Instead, they’ll be out on the curb with smeared makeup – down one sling back shoe trying to hail a cab back to their dreary little midtown studio.

  10. Confucius says:

    Don’t you just hate it when the liberals project their crazy onto everything?

    Somebody, please hit ’em with a thorazine dart.

  11. Reality Bytes says:

    “Even the restrooms along the New Jersey Turnpike are now cleaner.”

    Yeah, ever since our former governor & proud gay American stopped hangin’ out in them with his anonymous buddies that is.

  12. Liberals Demise says:

    You call that art(?) in the restrooms? I call it a piss target.

  13. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    What, no re-mix of the hallelujah chorus using The One’s name? My apologies to the great composer George Handel.

  14. Barbie says:

    Note to Prez Barry from sane people in this country: please increase funding for mental health programs by a signficant amount. As you can tell by this ‘artwork’, people are suffering…

    Gads, don’t knock yourself out there on the painting, can’t put in too much effort………….

    I think it typifies all that’s wrong with liberals/leftists and peoplewhodon’tknowthere’saworldoutsideNewYork.

    1. It’s all about expression, not talent. I look at the work of the Renaissance, statues carved out of marble to look like a real person, and marvel at the time and drive it took to do that. This just shows how they feel…no need for learning and years of practice, it’s all self-portrayal. Best of all, it’s non-discriminatory, skill doesn’t matter…..unless you’re an evil right winger.

    2. Lacking any intent for analysis and logic this is as far as most of them go, they want a fairy tale, they don’t want to see that anybody is as human as anyone else, including the leader.

    3. Which leads to the last point, that questioning their ideals leads to questioning themselves, and they won’t go there. Which is why it could just as well been Donald Duck on the platform that day.

  16. Alice L. says:

    Don’t forget: the NY Slimes worshipped Stalin, covered up the famine in the Ukraine, and buried news about the Holocaust. They are complicit in these crimes by deliberately refusing to expose them. I look forward to the Slimes’ eventual demise.
