Now, children…

It has been a great delight over recent months to watch the liberal mainstream media eat their own and bicker amongst themselves over the Obama vs. Clinton contest. You see, the MSM has always dreamed of the day when a woman OR an African American would be a serious contender for a presidential race. Analysts and pundits had their poignant soliloquies at the ready for just such an occasion. They were prepared to enlighten us little people on the historical significance of it all (because of course we never would have figured that out on our own).

What they never anticipated was that the first serious African American contender would be pitted against the first serious female contender in the same race. This wasn’t how it was supposed to happen. Now liberal columnists had to choose sides. Now analysts on the network news shows had to stand for one and against the other. Now THEY were faced with the uncomfortable prospect of being labeled either a racist or a sexist depending upon which candidate they chose.

Needless to say, the feathers have been flying and it has been a sheer joy to behold.

The ever perky Katie Couric is among the latest to enter the fray. She shared her embittered take on Hillary’s recent loss while speaking at a pow-wow in her honor. Mediabistro’s Daily FishbowlDC reports:

Yesterday, CBS’ Katie Couric was honored by the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum at their Alice Award Luncheon Gala. She was recognized for “her remarkable career in news media, her ground breaking role as the first female solo anchor of a weekday network evening broadcast and her tireless advocacy for colorectal cancer screening, which has helped save the lives of countless men and women each year” (according to a release).

Some thoughts from Couric at the event:

However you feel about her politics, I feel that Sen. Clinton received some of the most unfair, hostile coverage I’ve ever seen.

Couric went on to say that latent sexism contributed, in part, to Hillary’s defeat.

Actually, I think abrasive phonyism did Hillary in, Katie. Unless you were referring to the sexism of her saboteur hubby (what, you think Bill really wanted to be first dude?)

Couric then aimed her darts at one of her esteemed collegues — without naming names — over his confessed bias for Obama:

She referred to one “prominent member of the commentariat” who said he “found it hard to be objective when it came to Obama.

That’s your job,” she remembers thinking when hearing this, before suggesting that he “find another line of work.

Oh this is just grand coming from a news-anchor who has to keep a cup under her desk whenever she talks about a republican so that she’ll have something to spit her nails into. By the way, Katie, might we ALSO suggest… I mean Micky D’s is hiring… and they could sure use your toothy smile behind the counter…

DF then goes on to speculate whether Katie was referring here to Chris Matthews… or perhaps Lee Cowan. I personally don’t know or care. Either way it’s lib vs. lib and it’s pure gold.
