Call it another case of being too fast on the Twitter. The perils of dashing off observations on the microblogging site were brought into sharp relief Monday when several overeager ABC News employees -- including "Nightline" anchor Terry Moran -- rushed to tweet that President Obama had called Kanye West a “jackass” for interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Everything Obama does is staged. The media are willing accomplices. Obammy just happens to let something slip with a convenient mike nearby. And surprise, surprise! He's criticizing a black man about a white woman. Can you say, My ratings are sagging because of the Gates affair, and here's a way to win back some white votes? What a liar! Hey black voters, how does it feel under the bus there?
