I hate to call out one of my favorite blogs in the burgh, the Carbolic Smoke Ball. However, I believe they went a step too far with this posting where the CSB “quotes” a German as saying, “‘I haven’t seen such charisma since . . . .’ He cut himself off, fearful of uttering the name “Adolf Hitler” in public.” I DO realize that there’s some extreme irony in having the furthest thing from an Aryan male (a black male) compared to Hitler, but I’m still not sure it’s appropriate.
On top of that particular article 15 of the last 20 articles in their political section (I counted yesterday) mock Obama in one way or another. The other 5 mock Senator Edwards (1), JFK (1), Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (1), John McCain (1) and Larry King (1). Does anyone else see that as slightly skewed? I’m not saying they can’t mock Obama or that most of their satire isn’t hilarious, just that they should either spread it out or state a preference. I have a feeling that many of these political entries are created by 1 of their writers whose bias is well established but not well publicized.
