There's one thing I love about recent Democratic presidents; or should I say, the treatment they receive at the hands of those in the national press who worship at their feet. Before their elections, in the interminable months leading up to their nominations, we are inundated with innumerable references to their vast and nuanced intellectual capacities, lovesongs to their honesty, paeans to their eloquence and tributes to the crystal clear transparency of their administrations; should they deign to bless us with same.
But soon after the inauguration, the media quickly switch from their roles as lionizers to deodorizers; cleaning up after their idols like a mother who follows her children around with wet naps to tidy up any embarrassing accidents her little darlings might inflict on society.

What a great line!
There ain’t enough Fabreze in the whole wide world to cover this administration’s putrid odor.
Well written piece.
I think this analogy-the media as doting mommy to Democrats-has political value.
Romney campaign, are you listening?
