Get off my plane Judas

The Obama Campaign is outraged that three newspapers endorsed John McCain. To demonstrate their outrage, and the current Democratic behavior akin to the Soviet Politburo, Obama tossed the reporters from those papers off his campaign airplane. Seriously, he actually did that. 

Journalists from three major newspapers that endorsed John McCain have been booted from Barack Obama's campaign plane for the final leg of the presidential race.

The Washington Times reported Friday that it was notified of the Obama campaign's decision Thursday evening -- even though the paper has covered Obama from the start.

Executive Editor John Solomon told that the Obama campaign said it didn't have enough seats on the plane, but "I don't think the explanation makes sense to us."

"We've been traveling since 2007 with him. ... We're a relevant newspaper -- every day we break news," Solomon said. "And to suddenly be kicked off the plane for people who haven't covered it as aggressively or thoroughly as we are ... it sort of feels unfair."

He said the newspaper protested but was turned down again by the campaign.

"I can only hope that the candidate who describes himself as wanting to unite the nation doesn't have some sort of litmus test for who he decides gets to cover the campaign," Solomon said, noting that the Obama campaign's decision came just two days after the paper endorsed McCain.
This is not the actions of someone who's ever endured criticism. This is the behavior of a spoiled rotten petulant brat. The Washington Times, the NY Post, and the Dallas Morning news all have much larger circulations than the replacement reporters. So the only explanation is that the petulant spoiled brat Obama didn't like it when those papers didn't endorse him.

I'm almost enjoying the idea of Obama as a President around this. Imagine the tantrum he would throw when the world doesn't just fall into line like he promises it will. Imagine his screaming tirades and massive staff firing when his approval ratings drop during the inevitable Depression that will follow his proposed economic plan. 

Can you imagine the outrage from the Left if McCain did something like this? Can you imagine the screams of McCarthyism? The left would be stuttering in impotent range.  

I think the rage in the streets in a year should Obama be elected and unable to deliver on a third of his promises, since many of his supporters are the same kind of petulant spoiled brats. I think it's going to be funny when the people finally realize that the Government isn't going to pay for their gasoline, and isn't going to pay for their house, and can't pay for them all to get into a mansion. That's the really hilarious thing to me. If Obama is elected, the people who think that they will be brought up to the level of the Rich, will be astounded when the Rich are instead brought down to the lowest level, as is normal in Socialist Countries. 

This action, throwing the reporters off the plane, is a perfect example of the Democrats loyalty litmus test. If you dare disagree with them, you will be punished. If you dare to speak ill of the party line, then you will be destroyed. The Democrats are even closer to the Stalin era of the Socialists than I had thought. Should be interesting to see how the Patriotic Americans respond to the demands for more power and loyalty from the Democrats. 

UPDATE: Hot Air is running the story and it's generating a lot of outrage from the Conservatives. Michelle Malkin also has a nice piece up. 

If you don’t make me glow, you gotta go.
