The media and Libya – 2011-08-23 Quote of the Day

Tam has a post up about the ridiculousness of Teh Won claiming credit for the rebel victory in Libya. Jay G hits one out of the park on a related subject in the comments.

I would, however, like to know how much American money has been spent in Libya. The vanguard US press, who kept a rolling tally of both deaths and costs when the guy in the Oval office had an (R) next to his name, is strangely silent now…

That is a very good question. I’m sure there’s a perfectly valid reason that they’re not counting every penny being spent in Libya like they did for Bush in Afghanistan and Iraq – or, for that matter, a valid reason why the running totals for Afghanistan and Iraq suddenly and quietly got relegated to the back pages (if they get printed at all) shortly after the election.

I mean, it couldn’t be because the media is in the tank for Obama. That would be ridiculous!

  1. And in the end the new boss will likely be WORSE than the old Boss. Women-hating, gay-hanging, suicide-vest wearing, religious fanatics

    See also Egypt. Seems contagious for people speaking out against their government….but sad when you realize they’re asking for LESS freedom.
