The left-o-sphere is in full blame-the-GOP mode. Think Progress. The Nation. Firedoglake. The whole lot of them. All shrieking in unison (except for one obscure Kos diarist who won't be there for long) over Rove/Collins opposing flu pandemic funding in the porkulus bill.
But guess who else opposed flu pandemic $ in the porkulus?
As Michelle and others point out, the Democrats and their media enablers are not going to let this crisis pass without profit.
NBC, ABC, CBS and all the other BS'ers are in full panic peddling mode. We now have PU every hour, (Panic Updates) which causes more alarm than the situation warrants.
It's the RATINGS, STUPID.
