How Cute of The Note to Push the Same Tired Storylines

When pro-Bush and anti-Dem narratives need pushing, look no further than ABC's The Note:

"For the Democrats, there is: the Biden view on Iraq; the Murtha view on Iraq; the Kerry views on Iraq; the Senate caucus's ever-dynamic debate about what the party should stand for; the mass conspiracy of silence over taxes and health care, taxes and the rich, and taxes and taxes; Together, We Can Do Better; Together, America Can Do Better; Better, America Can Be, Together; opportunity, responsibility, and community; community; the modern communication skills of Leaders Reid and Pelosi, and their control over their own public images; Six in '06; New Direction for America; Rahm's view on Iraq; the Pelosi-Hoyer friendship; Murtha's abortive leadership bid; Howard Dean's discipline; and the bloggers. (For a super smart take on all this, see Noonan, Peggy — on Jim Webb as "Nancy Pelosi with medals.") LINK

For the Republicans, there is what the Strategist-in-Chief laid out in the Rose Garden yesterday..."
Halperin and co. can yuck it up about Dem 'confusion', but give me a party that actually debates something as serious as war rather than one that marches in lock-step to disaster. If the geniuses at The Note want to be original and not just a mouthpiece for hackneyed CW, they'd come up with new angles on current events - the operative word being new.

Has "The Note" been yucking it up about the lack of unity in Republican party about the immigration issue?

Probably not.

"Jim Webb as 'Nancy Pelosi with medals.'"

Gee, I thought that kind of snide, mocking contempt towards decorated Vietnam War vets was supposed to come from the effete impudent snobs of the LIBERAL media, not the effete impudent draft snobs of the conservative media.

Truly, the world has been turned upside down.

Has anyone noticed that "conventional wisdom" is an oxymoron?
