Life Imitates Ace

Ace of Spades earlier today:

If you’ve talked to Hillary supporters, you know that they’re the world’s most recent and most enthusiastic converts to the Anti-Media Bias Party. It’s almost funny how life-long Democrats are now sputtering angrily about media bias, the way we’ve been fuming for most of our lives. They know damn well the media propped up Obama while working to take down their girl.

Which is why Ed Rendell sounds much more like Brent Bozell in this Politico article:

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell was supposed to give “closing remarks” during this afternoon’s Shorenstein Center-sponsored panel discussion with all three Sunday show moderators — NBC’s Tom Brokaw, ABC’s George Stephanopoulous and CBS’s Bob Schieffer — but instead, he opened up a can of worms about bias in 2008 election coverage

“Ladies and gentleman, the coverage of Barack Obama was embarrassing,” said Rendell, in the ballroom at Denver’s Brown Palace Hotel. “It was embarrassing.”

Rendell, an ardent Hillary Rodham Clinton supporter during the primaries, now backs Obama in the general election. Brokaw and Rendell began debating campaign coverage, including the on-air comments by Lee Cowan, and when MSNBC came up, Rendell went after the cable network.

“MSNBC was the official network of the Obama campaign,” Rendell said, who called their coverage “absolutely embarrassing.”

Chris Matthews, Rendell said, “loses his impartiality when he talks about the Clintons.”

Ed must be the last guy on the planet who can use the words “impartiality” and “Chris Matthews” in the same sentence and still keep a straight face.
