Inspired by this post, a comment I really appreciated. Read below first, then the link, then the comment below again.

One extra note on the Republican-friendly nature of national journalists as a class: I think they’re currently very pissed off at Obama for getting reelected. Karl Rove wasn’t the only meltdown on election night. The newsy set were humiliated in front of the entire country when their two most cherished narrative sacred cows were slaughtered before their eyes. ‘America Is A Center-Right Nation’ and ‘The Election Is A Squeaker’ both died very public and obvious deaths. It’s not just the shame, but the narrative IS reality to them. They believed it, and they were shown that everything they knew was a lie. Since it can’t be their fault, they blame Obama!

Between the two, you have a pretty decent summation of my thoughts.
