I'm not a fan of Rush Limbaugh's (or of any relatively far-Right or far-Left political commentator, for that matter): but Mr. Limbaugh's absolutely, 100% correct in this comment about the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao.
The moral code, the moral compass of the State-Controlled Media is something to behold. Now, some of you may not know the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner hosted a state dinner last night for Hu Jintao of China. Hu Jintao is holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner in prison in China. Not making it up. The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner hosted a dinner for the guy holding the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner in prison, and the media does not get the irony of this at all. They're too busy running around chasing Sarah Palin and radio talk show hosts over "civility." Our media is so fraudulent. No talk about the political prisoners. No talk about the gulags.
. . .
Jimmy Carter has won a Nobel Peace Prize as well, and Jimmy Carter also attended Hu's dinner.
So you had two American Nobel Peace Prize Winners effectively honoring the head of a country who's holding 2010's Peace Prize Winner in prison -- and we had to listen to our fearless leader talk about aaaaall the great progress the ChiComs are making and how pleased we are with all that progress.

Sickening, isn't it? Political expediency trumps ethics and morality, every time . . . and our media are kowtowing right along with the politicians.
