Early "Congratulations" to Mainstream Media
The punditocracy is already declaring Hillary Rodham Clinton's coronation indefinitely postponed. Barack Hussein Obama, they say, has the Democratic nomination all wrapped up.
The pundits' rush to pronounce the death of Clinton's presidential aspirations it started the day after the Iowa caucuses may be explained, in part, because they can't stand her and can't stomach the thought of the Clintons back in the White House again.
But I think there's more to it than that. The comrades populating the Mainstream Media branch of the Democratic Establishment will get a double-dip of self-righteous, sanctimonious satisfaction in the general election. They will, secretly, be patting themselves on the back for having voted for the "African-American" candidate; and, not so secretly, they will be despising the great unwashed masses for putting the white candidate into office.
