This is a long-time complaint about media coverage. You read corruption stories about Republicans, you know from the get-go that they're Republicans, and you know, as many times as you can possibly be reminded during the story, about their relationships to important Republican donors and officials, just to spread the "taint" around as much as possible.

You ever read a story about corruption in government and you end up not real sure which party the offender is a member of? There's your Democrat, nine times outta ten.

Happens all the time. Happened in my home state this week.
