Deja Vu

I had a bit of Deja Vu during tonight's news. NBC ran a story about some formerly dedicated Republicans who were disenchanted with the party and would likely vote Democrat. David Broder wrote a very similar column about a long-time Republican who is disgusted with the party ad planning to vote against it.
They were running the same story two years ago - people who voted for Bush in 2000 were not going to vote for him in 2004. They ran this story again and again. From the news coverage, Bush didn't have a chance.
The funny thing is that they never run stories about people who voted Democrat and are now planning to vote Republican. It's almost enough to make you think that the MSM is trying to give the impression that the Democrats can't lose.

Now that I think about it, I remember hearing a long piece on NPR in the fall of 1994. It was on how the Democrats in Congress coudn't lose. That was the year that the Republicans took Congress. Hmm.
