Newsweek's Fineman: Rep. John Dingell is Aaron to Obama's Moses

<p>For as much as we on the Right have lambasted the liberal media for religious metaphors when it comes to Barack Obama, you'd think they'd eventually learn their lesson. </p><p>But apparently they just can't help themselves, particularly now that ObamaCare has passed and they see America entering into a progressive Promised Land.</p><p>Here's Howard Fineman from a <a href="http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/thegaggle/archive/2010/03/23/john-dingell... target="_blank">March 23 Newsweek Gaggle blog post</a> published after the signing ceremony:</p><blockquote><!--break--><p>The scene was as casual as it was remarkable:  83-year-old Congressman John Dingell of Michigan in his shirtsleeves, his long frame stretched out on a couch as he watched the C-Span feed of the House proceeding. </p> <p>He slowly sat up, stuck out his hand for a handshake, and smiled in triumph. &quot;This bill isn't everything I might have wished for,&quot; he told me. &quot;No piece of legislation is perfect. What we do here is incremental. But I'm happy. And I know my dad would have been, too. He would have said, 'Son, you did all right.&quot;</p> <p>If Obama is the Moses of the new health-care law, Dingell is the Aaron—except that, unlike Aaron, he's happily alive to reach the (incremental) promised land. &quot;There is a certain satisfaction,&quot; said Dingell as he kept an eye on the TV.<br /> </p></blockquote><p>To paraphrase Solomon, like a dog who returns to his vomit, so a liberal journalist returns to his Obama worship. </p>
