Mika, Barnicle, Joe, Willie & Tucker Carlson taking about the obamessiah and his rain gear yesterday and the pix of the front page of the NY Times.
BARNICLE: It looks like a clip from a movie trailer.
JOE: Imagine the NY Times would make him look like a movie star in the closing days of the campaign.
TUCKER: He looks majestic. He has the burden of so much unrealistic hope on shoulders. There’s no way he could possibly live up to it.
Mika looks upset…and guilty.
JOE: The press is setting him up for failure. We’ve talked about how they’ve had schoolgirl and schoolboy crushes on his guy. They have done him a great disservice by giving him a big fat wet kiss over the past 12 months.
Tucker then talks about the fact that the media has a vested interest in his success they’ll look like fools when he fails.
TUCKER: So, because the press has this passionate, not at all platonic, but much froppy love—
JOE: It’s much deeper. It’s HOT. It’s hot love.
TUCKER: It’s hot. It’s way hot. [creepy even for Tucker] Because they have invested so much in Obama, they can’t turn around tomorrow and say ‘oh he’s a schmuck – he’s blown it.’ There’s no way—
JOE: They did it to John McCain.
TUCKER: Yes, but it took eight years. I’m talking about the base. I’m talking the average Starbuck’s baristas who believes he’s going to make the lame walk and blind see and redeem their sins.
Joe laughing hysterically. Mika sips and clutches to her coffee, rocking like a child…she’s one of the barista’s…customers.
TUCKER: Seriously they’re going to be upset when the world isn’t perfect on the 5th of November.
MIKA: I hope I can still get my coffee.
