The elephant in the bathtub


John Hindedraker's observation describes what the MSM refuses to show:

Mary Landrieu has gone stark raving mad. It's funny, though, how seldom these MSM interviewers ask her about the fact that her brother is the Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana. Plus, of course, her father was the Mayor of New Orleans. Can anyone say "corrupt oligarchy"? Another time, that would be a topic of interest to the MSM, but not now, when they are hunting bigger game.

It is not much of a mental jump to connect corrupt oligarchs to governmental incompetence. But that would downplay the responsibility of President Bush, and heighten the responsibility of Democrats at the local level.
