The Fox And The Dogs

Atrios asked an interesting question this morning:

Have all the Democrats gone to an undisclosed location where there aren't any teevee cameras?

It does appear as if the television people have trouble finding many Democrats to discuss the stimulus plan. This immediately reminded me of the fox going to ground when the hunters and the dogs are out. Which has nothing to do with the topic, except that the American media does seem to think that the way to discuss politics (the fox hunt) is by showing lots of dogs (the Republicans) and only one fox (some random Democrat). Something that may be a balanced view of a fox hunt doesn't work quite as well for political reporting, especially when the foxes are in the majority. Just mentioning, you know.

Of course feminists don't exist at all in television land. They are most likely all protesting fox hunts somewhere.
