Look, I hate Lanny Davis and James Carville and Mike McCurry and all the Clinton admin media grifters, probably more than I hate the Bush admin ones. But why are these so many from the Bush administration?
It’s been tough to keep up with all of them, but the list is getting pretty long. In addition to Orr and Malcolm on the Los Angeles Times’ “Top of the Ticket” site, we also have Dana Perino (Fox News), Michael Gerson (Washington Post), Marc Thiessen (Washington Post), Mary Matalin (CNN), Sara Taylor (MSNBC), Tony Snow (CNN), Frances Fragos Townsend (CNN), Nicole Wallace (CBS News), Dan Bartlett (CBS News), Jeff Ballabon (CBS News), Tony Fratto (CNBC), Juan Carlos Zarate (CBS News), and of course Karl Rove (Fox News, Newsweek, and the Wall Street Journal).
The only president in recent history who left office as unpopular as Bush did was Nixon. And, yes, I realize that are plenty of Nixonites on the airwaves these days, did they start hiring them right after Nixon resigned?
