Hullabaloo - "Nice Tries"

I read Josh Marshall's TPM all the time -- most days I check in multiple times a day. But, as has happened before, I find Digby does a better job of summing up the muck that TPM rakes. Here Dibgy dives into the lame attempt to portray the GOP corruption volcano as a bipartisan status quo: "Nice Tries"

Josh Marshall is collecting "nice tries," which are the brownnosing, he said/she said statements by the media implying that all this nasty corruption business is a bi-partisan matter.

It's obvious that the "culture of corruption" charge is scaring the GOP because they've clearly put the hammer down on the media to portray the looming scandal tsunami as something "everybody does." This, of course, is utter bullshit. As Marshall says, it comes from the proximity to power and the Democrats are way out of that game.
But don't take Digby's work for it. Check out TPM too:
Republicans must be purer than Caesar's wife?
Would you like to join our 'Nice Try' brigade?
