Oliver Willis whines about ‘The Five’ panel’s enthusiasm for Paul Ryan

Media Matters’ research fellow of stompyfootedness couldn’t handle Dana Perino’s excitement at the prospect of Vice President Paul Ryan. Such silliness, he said! Such fawning!

Fortunately, one Twitterer was kind enough to remind Oliver what real media fawnage looks like:

@BenHowe one is describing obama's (perceived) positioning. the other is boosterism of ryan.

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) August 22, 2012

A valiant attempt at spinnage, but no.

@jaycaruso @owillis he's "above" America? "Above" all the petty patriotism we bothered with? It's a worshipful perspective.

And in case Willis needs more evidence of the media’s Obama-induced drool spasms, this ought to keep him busy for a while.

C’mon Oliver. After nearly four years of Vice President Biden, can you really blame anyone for anticipating a change in the lineup?
