Scandal Fatigue, Catnip & the “Angry” Left
SCANDAL FATIGUE, CATNIP & THE ‘ANGRY’ LEFT: A few months ago, Steve Benen, Carpetbagger and DR guest-poster, wrote a fascinating blog entry that chronicled a series of Bush-related scandals …. all of which had occurred in the space of a week. In that regard, glance around this site today. You’ll find an over-abundance of stories that undermine the credibility and integrity of our current administration and of the party in power. This coincides with a recent wave of references to the “angry” left, as though anger at the apathy of the media, the political establishment and much of the public in the face of this cavalcade of scandals is somehow in bad taste.
