You're Spaced Out On Sensation, Like You're Under Sedation

More from the Time Warp files, as NRO’s Greg Pollowitz links to a Huffington Post blogger none-too-keen on Keith Olbermann’s typically hyperbolic language (and gee, welcome to the club!):

Olbermann was discussing the election with Newsweek’s Howard Fineman, a frequent guest. They topic was, how can a winner finally be determined in this never-ending Democratic race for the nomination? Of course, the assumption was that it was Clinton that should be shown the door (despite clearly still earning her spot in the race thanks to, um, voters). Fineman said that, all the delegate math aside, ultimately it was going to take “some adults somewhere in the Democratic party to step in and stop this thing, like a referee in a fight that could go on for thirty rounds. Those are the super, super, super delegates who are going to have to decide this.”

Said Olbermann: “Right. Somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out.”

Which sounds sort of like a rewrite of the Economist’s infamous line earlier this month, which I quoted in my recent video:

The Democrats are all too aware that their civil war could spell disaster. A cavalcade of senior Democrats, including senators Patrick Leahy and Chris Dodd, have advised Mrs Clinton to retire to her room with a glass of whisky and a loaded revolver.

Are these the examples of the nuance that the left is so known for?
