Sometimes the desperation of the righties to try and prove some sort of liberal media bias is laughable, but this one takes the cake. Newsbusters (if you can call it that) is going off on ESPN SportsCenter anchor Kenny Mayne. They're "busting" the story that Mayne must be flaunting his left-wing ways by using the phrase "Obama" as an excited utterance after a big play (i.e. home run, made three-point shot).

For those of you that don't know Mayne's work, he's got a very dry humor and likes to make remarks like "games aren't played on paper, they're played inside little TV sets" and such. He also has a "portfolio" of one-word catchphrases, such as "Ri-Cola", "Yahtzee", "Chula", etc.

Newsbies tries to tie this whole thing around Disney's neck as well. Oh really? The same Disney that allowed ABC to air a 9/11 mockumentary that was riddled with inaccuracies and outright lies about the Clinton administration? That Disney? Please!

Maybe it's just me, but can't we just sit back and say, hey, that sounds cool when you scream it really loud and fast? Do we have to make everything into a political tit for tat? But then again, on this same site these people call out the Today show for trying to hang the Barack the Magic Negro fiasco around Rush's neck, so I guess you see where they're coming from.
