  •  it seems to me that damn near every republican... (16+ / 0-)

    can go on whatever sunday show and "make whatever batshit proclamations he or she wants to" without the slightest fear of push-back from dancing dave, george snuffleupagus, or – as charlie pierce calls him – "spanish-american war correspondent" bob scheiffer.

    United we bargain. Divided we beg.

      that that would be about 100% correct.

      Either Media Matters or FAIR researched and reported on this one a while back.  What was interesting were the excuses: during the reign of Bushco, especially from 2002-2006, when the Rethugs controlled the WH, Senate and House, the excuse was ... well... that the Rethugs controlled the WH, the Senate, and the House.  And therefore, you see, they're more Important, and deserved to be on the cameras more than those loser Democrats, I guess.  I don't remember what the excuses were after we retook the House and tied the Senate in '06, and took the WH, a Senate majority, and the House in '08.  But I'm sure there was one.
