Food for thought

Just a random musing. If President Bush had lost the election, the media would have made it into a resounding repudiation of the war in Iraq, as they had attributed much of the President's unpopularity to that. This is the way they portrayed the Spanish elections, when the anti-Iraq war candidate won. But now that Bush has won, it is being attributed to his stance on Gay marriage. This is what happened with the Australian elections. The pro-Iraq war candidate won, so it was decided that the election was about the economy. The media should really make up its mind; either these elections were a referendum on foreign policy/preemptive military action or not. You can't have it both ways.
