    No, I'm saying 80% looks at the candidates and typically comes to about same conclusion.

    If one party is consistently more in tune with their thinking, that party will consistently win their votes. But that doesn't mean that those people would be safe voters for a fringe candidate from the party they usually vote for.

    Republicans have Fox News and AM radio, that's it. They are literally, actually the underdogs in media and certainly in academia, and vastly in unions. It's not a card so much as it is reality. Eric Holder saying all opposition is racist is playing a card.

    You're saying Dems think and then pull the D lever, I'm saying they don't think and pull the D lever. Same with most R voters. I'll agree to disagree, hard to prove something that produces the same results regardless of who's right.

    You consider George W Bush mainstream then?

    McCain had long been a media favorite before 2008, and that didn't really change in the election. They media were fawning over Palin when she was first announced and gave her speech. It wasn't until she started embarrassing herself with her lack of knowledge that the coverage of her turned. The media loved GWB before and during his first term. The media were also brutal to Al Gore--repeating constant fake quotes and inaccurate claims about him.

    My impression of the real media bias is they like people who come out of nowhere, but then they turn on them. They like winners. They get tired of people who have gotten a lot of coverage. In terms of policy, they hate deficits and are generally right-leaning on economic issues, but they don't "get" the religious and are generally left-leaning on social issues. It all varies, of course, but that's the center. And it's understandable given what they do and where they tend to be based.

    Yes, of course. If anything, the party has moved even further to the right since he left office.

    My point is that it's become a crutch. Every little bit of negative press gets dismissed because...liberal media. They play it up every chance they get.

    Maybe they deserve a lot of negative press for being godawful? They're objectively the worse of the two parties so I'm not sure why they think they're entitled to some perfect 50/50 split with the Democrats when it comes to media treatment. It doesn't help that they regularly elevate clownish idiots to places of high prominence within the party. In what bizarro universe is somebody like Michelle Bachmann EVER going to look good in the media?

    They also conveniently ignore instances where the media works in their favor. You mentioned Clinton, well I remember 24/7 coverage of cum-stained dresses.

    This is kinda what I'm getting at. They pretend like bad press is just some default thing that happens regardless of how shitty or ridiculous they happen to be at any given time. Seriously, how on earth is a business that relies on ratings and sensationalism ever going to resist clowning on somebody as ridiculous as Palin?

    Yeah. What happens in most races (including at the local level) is that as one candidate starts struggling or another pulls away, the coverage of the struggling candidate gets more negative (because you start getting negative leaks from the campaign and everyone is in a worse mood), and then the struggling candidate blames his defeat on the bad press.

    Of course it is. Only old farts pay attention to either.

    Can we start a thread about someone being intimately familiar with the Asian community but isn't Asian and isn't married to one, please?

    I nominate C&T as the resident expert.
