Cue the scary horror flick music! Joan Walsh is back from vacation. AAAAAAAAAAAGGGHHHH!!!!
(Of course Joan wasn't REALLY off on vacation. She was off having lunch meetings to pitch MSNBC execs, begging them to give her a bigtime primetime teevee show so she can show off her astounding political punditry talents...)
So, Joan has more than a week off from Salon, time that you'd think she'd reflect for, oh, maybe five minutes or so between those MSNBC meetings. You know, think about Salon, its future, where its going, how to improve it -- important stuff like that.
So, first thing back, does she comes back with a gleam in her eye and finally fire Camille Paglia? Does she tell her Mini-Me Rebecaa Traister to quit writing love letters to bacon and actually research and write something? Does she woo Steve Benen back to run War Room full-time?
No...there are much bigger slabs to fry for Joan...
Because after all that time to peruse and ponder, she doesn't come back with something new, exciting, and fresh to say? OHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOO..... Joan Walsh -- and here, come on all, join in and say it along with us -- JOAN WALSH BASHES OBAMA.
Usually Joan is concerned by Obama, but the antidepressants are NOT working, and Joan's escalating. Now Joan is "betrayed" by Obama.
What's next? That's easy. While on vacation, Joan took along her trusty Roget's Thesaurus, looked up synonyms for concerned and betrayed, and and has mapped out enough blog post titles to easily carry her through the summer.
So, Salon readers, stay tuned, because coming soon from Joan Walsh at Salon, are the following headlines:
- Troubled by Obama
- The apostasy of Barack
- Feeling anxious about Obama
- Why we're apprehensive about Obama
- Obama begins to beguile
- America is fearful of Obama
- My uneasiness with Obama
- Obama's unsettling direction
- Why liberals are distressed by Obama
- Obama's perfidious politics
- Treachery thy name is Obama
- Obama double-crosses the Dems
- Deceived by the dude
- Duped by the Democratic nominee
- Obama humbug!
- Hoodwinked by the hysteria
- Obambi pulls the wool over our eyes
Please, someone, invite them!! Because even with the bacon stories and Greenwald doing his best Paul Revere imitation, Salon sans Walsh and Koppelman was such the nicer place.
