TWO-FACED PRONOUNCEMENTS TAKEN AT FACE VALUE — a nice Matt Welchism. Matt’s discussing this column by Robert J. Samulson on the press’s infatuation with Obama: “The press has become Obama’s silent ally and seems in a state of denial. But the story goes untold.” Well, yeah. The truly insane are the ones who never look into the question of their possible insanity. What’s to report? ADDED: As an emailer points out, the two-faced/face value witticism is in the original Samuelson article.
