The Huffington Post is getting quite of bit of attention for its home page this afternoon, which introduces the nation to President George W. Obama, complete with one of those photo-morphs that went out of style about 20 years ago. It’s a good effort, though, considering the president’s lapdogs were caught by surprise when an U.K. newspaper broke the news of the Justice Department’s “obscenely outrageous” snooping on all Verizon customers in the name of national security.

We’re sure the Left will come up with something better over the next couple of days, but as always, in case of emergency, blame Bush.

And Chuck Todd, don’t forget.

The comparison of Bush and Obama is a bit of a stretch in at least one sense. After all, there’s one major difference between the two, if not for much longer.

At least one. If they ever remake “Titanic,” Leonardo DiCaprio has nothing on Media Matters’ Oliver Willis when it comes to clinging to sinking wreckage.
