Not Popular

Will the Beltway Cocktail Party Crowd, so perfectly represented by the nauseating Note, ever internalize the fact that Bush and his people are not popular. More generally, I'm horrified by a press that would even consider that presidential popularity should have an influence on the tone of their general coverage of the administration. I'm doubly horrified by a press that pretends that's the reason, even though popularity clearly had no impact on the way Clinton was treated as his approval ratings remained in the 60s.
