I’ve heard Chuck Todd on MSNBC use the saying “they have to get ahead of the story” in reference to the oil spill in the Gulf, but he says it about everything. That expression bothers the hell out of me because it turns everything into just a freakin story. It goes along with the whole symbolism crap that everyone, including democrats, are clamoring for. President Obama is heading down there again but how much do you want to bet that same freaking media is going to accuse him of bowing to pressure (from them) to show he cares. Isn’t that convenient for them, manufacture a meme and then exploit it. Pretty slick.
