It took her over a year, but this week it’s finally dawning on Elizabeth Warren that the only buzz surrounding her presidential campaign was media-created.
Let’s just say she’s not taking it at all well.
After her humiliating distant fourth-place finish in New Hampshire, the media-created candidate sent out a bitter, desperate email to her supporters complaining about the lack of media attention her campaign is getting.
In her email, Pocahasbeen whined that she “can’t count on the media to cover our campaign fairly.”
Liz is angry, you see, because Joe Biden’s concession speech was aired in its entirety, but her concession speech wasn’t.
And she totally beat him!!! Plus Biden left New Hampshire before the polls closed!!! So that’s not FAIR!!!!!
Yeah, it isn’t a lack of “fair” coverage that’s got Liz’s nose out of joint.
What she wants, what she’s come to expect, is media cheerleading.
Fact is, without the news media promoting her, Liz Warren would have dropped out of this race months ago.
Actually, if it weren’t for the news media, she never would have entered the race to begin with.
Her disastrous DNA debacle should’ve kept her from throwing her war bonnet into the ring.
But for the fact that the news media has been promoting and covering for this lightweight, Liz would’ve shared the same fate as her fellow lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Her base of support is in the news media.
The “Warren will be the nominee” hype was entirely media-created.
And despite the heavy lifting on the part of newspapers and fawning cable news cheerleaders, Liz Warren’s media-created campaign is floundering.
As I mentioned the other day, Liz canceled campaign ad buys in South Carolina and Nevada because she’s running out of cash.
It isn’t “fairness” she’s looking for here. What she wants is free campaign airtime in the guise of “news coverage” because she doesn’t have the cash to buy ads.
It seems rather counterproductive to attack the very people who have, for a year, carried her on their backs.
Then again, I suspect that, up until a few days ago, Elizabeth Warren actually thought her popularity was entirely organic and not, in fact, a media-creation.
And now it’s finally dawning on Liz that, when the rubber meets the road and she’s expected to win over voters, all the media-created hype in the world can’t mask what a phony she is.
As Jim Treacher put it over at PJ Media:
The voters don’t like Elizabeth Warren, no matter how hard the media tries to make her seem likeable. Instead of thanking the press for trying to drag her across the finish line, now she’s turning on them. The public sees what a brazen fraud she is. It’s nobody’s fault but her own.
Let’s go back to that email.
Here’s the whole paragraph in its entirety:
Elizabeth knows what it’s like to be counted out early, because it’s happened before. But right now, 55 states and territories have still yet to vote. 98% of delegates are still up for grabs. We can’t count on the media to cover our campaign fairly, so we’re taking our case directly to the voters. [original bold emphasis]
But here’s the thing. Elizabeth Warren’s problems began when she first started “taking our case directly to the voters.”
When face-to-face with actual human beings, the media-created Warren Buzz sputters out like a wet fart.
And nothing shows that better than this painful video of Liz awkwardly taking her case “directly to the voters:”
I’m no body language expert. But I think these guys were sending out big old clues that they really wanted Liz to go away. Good grief, nobody gets that fascinated by a napkin, am I right?
And Liz thinks her problem is lack of fair coverage by the media?
Please. Liz Warren’s problems begin and end with Liz Warren.
Apropos of nothing, really, but here’s a parody of Liz in the diner.
Any old how.
Here’s the truth.
If Liz Warren had an ounce of authenticity or charisma, her inevitable plunge wouldn’t have been a foregone conclusion.
Not every media-created candidate face-plants the instant voters meet him.
Look at Barack Obama. That guy was entirely media-created. But because he had charisma and charm, he was able to ride that media-created hype to victory.
Warren doesn’t have the Obama charisma or charm. Compared to Barack Obama, Warren is downright reptilian.
As a result, it didn’t take much for voters to realize her media-created popularity was, like Warren herself, completely phony. All it took to break the spell was Elizabeth Warren taking her case “directly to the voters.”
