NPR's Nina Totenberg - "I'm Already Afraid, Very Afraid"

NewsBusters runs a segment where Nina Totenberg and Newsweek's Evan Thomas, her co-panelist on Inside Washington, comiserate on the electoral Tsunami that is expected to overwhelm House and Senate Democrats this year. Fearing the worst from the "Tea Baggers" and other unwashed commoners as NPR commentators are fond of referring to them Totenberg laments, "I am already afraid, very afraid. I mean, it’s not like governance has been going great. I think we’ll, I don't know whether I should be afraid, but there will be gridlock."

Totenberg responded to a question posed by Gordon Peterson who quoted Obamaphile and erstwhile Democrat apologist Paul Krugman. "Nina, Peterson inquired, "columnist Paul Krugman says if the election goes as expected, his advice is be afraid, be very afraid. Should we take his advice?"

Peterson follows up with a question directed this time to Newsweek's Evan Thomas, "Evan, Krugman also says that future historians will probably look back at the 2010 election as a catastrophe for America. You are a historian. You agree with that?"

Thomas replies, No, but they might look on it as kind of a joke. There is sort of a circus aspect to it that people, it’s become comic and a kind of a dark way."

Oh yes? Common people standing up in an election and voting "no confidence" in change that leads to Marxism, is a "sort of joke" and "a circus" to the esteemed "journalists" at NPR and Newsweek.

The arrogance of the Obama media is only matched by their sublime ignorance of what America stands for and who Americans really are as a people.
