Imitation is the Sincerest Form XXIX

ImageShack tells me it was early June when I uploaded this one:

Perhaps it was for this item over here.

Mark Steyn has been noticing the same subtle central theme that permeates throughout all the Hopenchange policies. He echoes my point, but has some hard data to back it up:

He only gave (according to CBS News’s Mark Knoller) 158 interviews and 411 speeches in his first year. That’s more than any previous president – and maybe more than all of them put together. But there may still be some show out there that didn’t get its exclusive Obama interview – I believe the top-rated Grain & Livestock Prices Report – 4 a.m. Update with Herb Torpormeister on WZZZ-AM Dead Buzzard Gulch Junction’s Newstalk Leader is still waiting to hear back from the White House.

But what will the president be saying in all these extra interviews? In that interview about how he hadn’t given enough interviews, he also explained to George Stephanopoulos what that wacky Massachusetts election was all about:

“The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office,” said Obama. “People are angry and they’re frustrated, not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Got it. People are so angry and frustrated at George W. Bush that they’re voting for Republicans. In Massachusetts. Boy, I can’t wait for that 159th interview.

Of course it goes without saying — although it seems there’s always some pipsqueek around to say, and say & say & say & say some more — that each speech is levels of magnitude greater than the one immediately previous, which in turn is so much more wonderful than all the speeches that came before.

It is getting awfully tiresome, isn’t it?
