Jules Crittendon expertly deconstructs an AP story:

I count eight graphs to a Bush quote fragment. First, AP considers it important to have a GOP senator point out past mistakes, without noting that what Bush is doing now is exactly what the senator says he should have been doing. Democrats, after a snide transition, are invited to pile on about what Bush is now doing, without meaningful discussion of what that is or any opportunity for rebuttal provided.

Snide transition. Well said.
