Boehlert on the Imaginary Bush Bounce

From HuffPo's Eat the Press:
"The mainstream media's incessant, excited chatter about a looming Bush Bounce represented just the latest embarrassment in an endless parade of journalism missteps during the Bush years. The depressing puppet show--senior White House aides announce things are great, conservative 'news' outlets echo the spin and then MSM journalists gamely play along--has become annoying, tiresome and transparent. Yet the MSM won't stop embarrassing themselves."
I'd add one note to Eric's post: if subsequent polls show any statistically significant uptick in Bush's approval ratings, this narrative stream about a Bush 'recovery' will turn into a flood.
