Whenever I write about the horrible treatment Bill and Hillary receive from the media, some Obama supporters think that the media will never do the same to Barack. Let me make this point very clearly. The Villagers will turn on Obama in a heartbeat.

Case in point via our pal Will Bunch:

Jake Tapper (left) is an ambitious Philly-area kid who parleyed a date with Monica Lewinsky into early admission into the Gang -- now he's ABC's chief political correspondent and when he sees the excitement generated by the Obama campaign, he can only think of it as one thing: A cult.

His alarmist blog post is actually called: "And Obama Wept":

Inspiration is nice. But some folks seem to be getting out of hand.

It's as if Tom Daschle descended from on high saying, "Be not afraid; for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: for there is born to you this day in the city of Chicago a Savior, who is Barack the Lord." on

Tapper has a hilarious update to his post:

Let me be clear: I'm not saying there shouldn't be enthusiasm in politics. I'm merely touching on the fact that some Obama supporters' exuberance seems to be getting a little out of hand.

In essence he's telling you that exuberance for Obama is bad, Mmkay? If the CPACers were as excited for McCain---then exuberance would be good, Mmkay? No matter who you support for president, we can't let this stand. I will focus on the media coverage for both Hillary and Obama until the Dems have a nominee and as a friendly reminder----The Villagers love, just love John McCain.
