    is that Bob Woodward has been treated anything but disrespectfully by the Obama White House.

    How'd that work out?

    He got a bestseller, his Goodyear Blimp-sized ego puffed up a little more as he legend is sustained, and Obama... he gets rewarded with a fake outrage and a Woodward visit to Hannity.

    Nice arrangement we Democrats have there playing the access game set up by courtesans who worship the Republican elite's ruling eras of cocktail parties and galas to only benefit the Movement Conservative Right.

    He's richer right now than he was before because this administration did Bob Woodward a solid since day one, treating him like the mythological creature played by Robert Redford in 'All the President's Men' and not the Rightwing conventional wisdom pimp and Village weasel that he is in real life.

    What, exactly, did treating Woodward like beltway royalty get them? A low-rent low-grade faux outrage designed to help sell what I'm sure will be Woodwards next piece of shit about how Obama was an egomaniacal and manipulative bully with his finger on the button.... unless everybody agrees to go back to just playing ball when the faux outrage is over.

    Right now, Woodward is making Democrats who play by the Village media rules look like chumps.

    He got to write one of his biggest phony-ass conventional wisdom pimping Village circlejerk tomes with information he was spoon-fed via the access he was granted by the Obama administration.

    And now he's fucking them, and going on Sean Hannity to do it. Embracing the sort of wingnut welfare echochamber Fox and Friends crowd he wouldn't be caught dead speaking with at the Correspondence Dinner.

    And the prick will be back right where he was before this when this shit blows over.

    Another "walking the corridors of power with the powerful" tome.

    You give me access, and I make you look good.
    You don't, and I write a big fat Village fuck you for the NYTimes best seller's list.

    I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party
