Complete and total lack of self-awareness

Perusing Memeorandum tonight I happened upon a blog by a guy named William A. Jacobsen who is apparently flogging a story about what kind of mustard Barack Obama ordered on his burger today.

No, really.

Seriously, stop laughing - he really did.

What made me bother linking to this nonsense though is this little crack from Mr. Jacobsen,

MSNBC, Obama's favorite network, reported on Obama's trip with Joe Biden to get a burger... Andrea Mitchell (does she have nothing else to do?) reported that Obama ordered a burger and mustard. Sounds like it had that "real guy kind of quality."

Emphasis mine.

Jacobsen then proceeds to write another 200 words on the topic, break down the audio of the MSNBC broadcast, post two updates of increasing paranoia and then another version of the video.

How totally unaware do you have to be to slam Andrea Mitchell for reporting on the presidents day and then immediately follow-up with a lengthy, tedious and borderline delusional analysis of said report?

Professor Jacobsen, Ms. Mitchell is paid to follow the president and report. What's your excuse?

UPDATE: Jacobsen has now added 3 more updates and 2 more videos. So that's a total of 5 updates and 4 videos on the type of mustard that the President ordered. After criticizing Andrea Mitchell for not having anything better to do with her time.

I'm shocked that guys like Professor Jacobsen find themselves completely without power in the American democracy.

The Left is just keeping this 'Mustard story' alive, the Right had a chuckle and moved on. There are many much more important things to criticize this administration about. The Left doesn't want people focusing on the big stuff, because that's where it's most dangerous to them. The Truth will bring them down, God willing.
