Sic Transit Mundas

The media really dealt themselves a one-two punch with, first, their insistence that there were no substantive supply chain issues when anyone could walk into any supermarket and peep the empty shelves their damn selves. Guess to them there were no supply chain issues because their nannies and maids did all their grocery shopping.

And then, second, when they claimed against all evidence and reason that inflation really wasn’t a big deal, was transitory, and that the economy was humming along great — that all those insuperable price increases were just fabrications or your misperception. Just because you used to pay $4 for a Big Mac combo and now it’s $8 means nothing, they claimed. Just your lyin’ eyes doin’ what they do.

What a way to win ’em over. Command performance there.
