The Narrative

Republicans love The Troops and Democrats hate them and America. Republicans are FISCAL HAWKTIDUDES who care about lowering the deficit, above all, and Democrats want to tax your children to give money to black people. Republicans are good for the economy, while Democrats destroy it. Republicans love FAMILY VALUES and Democrats just want to force you to have gay abortions. Republicans love LAW AND ORDER and Democrats want Kitty Dukakis's murderer to be freed to kill again.

No amount of facts, polling, etc... can stop political coverage from internalizing these assumptions.

Also, that fucking newspaper.
