Culture of Corruption.
It seems to me that Democrats are actually engaging in (gasp) framing language. I saw it first on Daily Kos
, in a diary by Jon Tester
. Mr. Tester is running for Senate in the state of Montana. Then I heard it echoed over and over again in reports on CNN... I also read it in The Washington Post
and The New York Times
. Not renowned for its cohesive message machine, I have to agree that "Culture of Corruption" is an apt frame and one that is totally supported by the facts. To wit:
None of that is to mention the entire Iraq and WMD debacle. It's about time Democratic leadership grew some balls and started calling this Republican administration and all of its mouthpieces and minions what it is: corrupt.
Also from Daily Kos - a fabulous graphic provided in the form of a diary by Maria in pgh. Priceless.
