He's Special, So Special

At, sham swabbie "Captain" Ed Morrissey reminds us exactly why he's so special:

"Ed Morrissey / Hot Air:

Video: Maher salutes American troops — I stopped watching Bill Maher a long time ago, and it's moments like this that remind me why he's a waste of broadcast air time." (Emphasis added.)

The size of Limbaugh's radio audience must be credited to his followers' inability to understand more complicated technology.

At the same location, Prof. V.D. Hanson demonstrates the advanced stage of his infection with this bit of masturbatory prose:

"Victor Davis Hanson / The Corner:

First-person Socialism — I think our president needs to invest more in the use of the third-person 'government,' since his speeches more and more center on the narcissistic 'I' and 'me.' Even the car-takeover speech was 'I-ed' to death."

Starting a written statement of opinion with the words "I think" is very bad form -- if what you wrote isn't what you think, why the fuck did you write it?

If you want to see what a lying sack of shit Hanson, compare Hanson's bastardization of the text to Obama's actual speech. Obama's speechwriters use "we" and "the government" much more often than "I" or "me." (V.D. also claims that rhe President's use of the first person goes "on and on" after his excerpts, but it doesn't.) It takes a sociopath to find an inordinate use of the first person in the President's statement. And V.D. knows he's lying, which is why he doesn't link to the text.
