When You’ve Lost Tina Brown…You’ve Lost the Magic

Boy, it’s getting interesting out there. Take the Republicans’ War on Women (WOW) for example; it’s probably the Stockholm Syndrome, butt apparently women are beginning to identify with their oppressors:

Drudge women want republicans

Why? Well, I’ll let Tina Brown (yes, that Tina Brown) explain why women feel “unsafe” with Obama:

“Economically, they’re feeling unsafe. With regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe. They feel unsafe about Ebola. What they’re feeling unsafe about is the government response to different crises.”

Barack-Obama-Angry“I said, handle it!”

“And I think they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says this has to change, doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change, then it goes wrong and he’s blaming everybody.”

They’ll probably come to their senses by November 4th however, since, as Big Guy himself told us, his policies are on the ballot. Or maybe not, let’s get a clarification from the re-coifed Little Debbie:

“We are going to hold the Senate,” the Florida lawmaker told “Fox News Sunday.” “The president is not on the ballot.” (!?)

She continued her debate with Reince Prebus:

“The one question voters are going to ask themselves is ‘who has my back,’” Wasserman Schultz blurted out, trying to pretend her party isn’t headed for disaster in a little more than two weeks.

Priebus struck.

“Debbie, you guys are losing everywhere, first of all, and the president hasn’t had anybody’s back,” he said. “He hasn’t even had YOUR back.” (he was referring to this humiliating report in Politico)

Butt let’s get back to Ms.Tina Brown – the woman who in 2008 thought Big Guy was “Magic:”

This has been an election full of magic. White Magic that only the black man from everywhere and nowhere could perform. Even his adored grandmother dying on the eve of the victory had a mythic feeling of completion to it in a candidacy full of signs and symbols. Remember the three-point basketball shot when he played with the soldiers in Kuwait? It’s as if Obama is the prince who lifts the curse in a fairy story, a curse that began eight years ago with an election wrenched away from the rightful winner and begetting as a consequence the wrathful visitation of tragedy and wars and hurricanes and economic collapse. [warning: read the rest only if you are currently demonstrating no symptoms of Ebola]

Oh well, as Ed Driscoll points out, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Unfortunately Tina’s “Magic” tuned out to be nothing more than “magical thinking.”  She discovered that Barry’s magic was just a bunch of card tricks


and her disillusion spilled out on Ms.NBC’s Morning Joe show where she said Big Guy makes women feel “unsafe” – a phrase that normally would be considered a dog whistle on that station.
