WaPo uncharacteristically pokes fun at Obama

WaPo usually does not take jabs at the liberal establishment so I perk up when I see them change that pattern.  Calling Obama a parasite, even with supposed tongue in cheek humor, or even pointing it out when others do so, is just not their normal style.  At the end of the day, WaPo and all other for profit media have to cater to their readership and so perhaps WaPo is showing a little bit of deserved push back away from Obama in reaction to the same thing that it is seeing by its readers.  If you want to know the mind set of a newspaper's readers, read the paper.  Papers and news outlets don't really report news as much as they say things that their polls and other observations say will agree with the paying customer.  Customers tend not to pay when they don't agree with what you are saying...
