Carville Predicts Democratic Scandal Streak

Pretty safe bet there, James! But they’ll be “Dull Scandals” according to NBC–“Say farewell to hilarious sex hijinks and hello to corruption and related bummers.”

So without the sex angle, which used to be a personal matter in the mid-to-late-1990s–wonder what changed in 2006?–institutional corruption on the left is a mere “bummer”, and thus NBC and the rest of the dinosaur media has given themselves plenty of cover as to why they needn’t bother focusing on them.

Besides, relegating the scandal to page 15-D near the supermarket coupons cuts down on having to not name the party involved.
