Richard Cohen (or as I call him, Putzilla) didn’t think Stephen Colbert was funny at the White House Press Corps Grip’n’Grin. Fair enough. I mean, he’s wrong, but fair enough. He wrote about it in the Washington Post. Alright, also fair and excusable behavior. Of course, he got a ton of emails from people who thought Colbert was a riot and that Cohen’s Cohorts (kind of like Hogan’s Heroes, actually, with Rove as Sgt. Schultz, but I digress) in the Washington Press Corps are at least partially culpable for the disaster in Iraq and the mess into which our country is devolving. This apparently hurt his little feelings. He writes in the WaPo:
The e-mails pulse in my queue, emanating raw hatred. This spells trouble — not for Bush or, in 2008, the next GOP presidential candidate, but for Democrats. The anger festering on the Democratic left will be taken out on the Democratic middle. (Watch out, Hillary!) I have seen this anger before — back in the Vietnam War era.
Um… Putzilla…. we were right then, too, ‘k? Maybe you should pick some other time when Anger and Hatred for a sitting president were completely unreasonable… like Whitewater or Cumstaingate.
Because this time, we’re right and you’re on the Wrong Side of History. Again.
