The View from left field

It never ceases to amaze me that some people still argue that the MSM doesn't tilt to the left (*cough* Eric Alterman *cough*) or doubt that members of the media are out of touch with the sentiments of the majority or the American people.

This post, detailing how the ladies on The View couldn't understand why Dick Cheney would want to throw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals' home opener--while, incredibly, simultaneously complaining that he's usually out of the public eye!--and groused that having three wounded servicemen on the field with him was "like putting a baby in front of you when someone is trying to shoot you," is like the perfect storm of cluelessness and lefty talking points.

As far as I can tell, they stopped short of disparaging Mom and apple pie. Perhaps they'll have time for that segment on tomorrow's show.
