Stephie isn't in the tank for the Democrats, he's in the bathysphere. How can ABC news have a Democrat operative hosting news shows??? Unbelievable. I think part of it a pragmatic "win at all costs because our opponents are evil and we are the only hope for mankind" mentality, and partly the reinforcing qualities of the hive mind echo that is liberal discourse. They hear their wings buzzing in the hive so much that they accept it as part of the environment and a natural stream of truth. There is no mind more closed than a Leftist's.
