Dana Milbank Doesn’t Know What a ‘Flip-Flop’ Is

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank is accusing NRCC Chairman Greg Walden of flip-flopping on the clout of David Jolly's recent Florida election win.

Prior to Jolly's win, Walden said:

Whether we win it or lose it, the special elections aren't too predictive for either side going forward. If there's any advantage of a special election, it's that you can test messages, and you can test strategies, and you can test sort of your theories on voter turnout and I.D.

The morning after Election Day, Walden said:

Tonight, one of Nancy Pelosi's most prized candidates was ultimately brought down because of her unwavering support for Obamacare, and that should be a loud warning for other Democrats running coast to coast.

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank is once again running in slow motion down Pennsylvania Avenue holding the torch of banal conventional wisdom over his head while the Olympics theme plays in the background. His latest column spends several paragraphs mocking the March for Life because it was cold yesterday before arriving at an electrifying thesis: Conservatives are out of touch. Excerpt:

[Dr. James] Dobson did not see the hand of God in Wednesday’s brutal conditions. Yet if there are weather gods, they may have been making a pointed comment about a movement that has become frozen in time.

Another Milbank Muddle

Over at the Washington Post web site, liberal thought-leader Dana Milbank castigates Republicans for "governing by anecdote."

It seems that Mr. Milbank is pontificating by anecdote, missing the fact that Obama is the one who mastered the use of human props (or perhaps human shields) in his efforts to pass and defend legislation.

How could Milbank miss the fact that the first human props (or at least the first one that I saw in the news anywhere) in the debate over the rollout were in Obama's Rose Garden speech on October 21st?
