Right Wing Political Hacks

I thought it was just me. But I have a similar opinion as this guy. That is, alot of blogs (and media folks) on the right wing, continually regurgitate the same mantra as the administration and party line. Heck, its not even limited to blogs-- just look at letters to editors in many papers and you hear the same rhetoric from average "Joe". Lefties can be guilty of this too but it doesn't seem as prounced to me. Where has objectivity gone? It has died as the walls of division have risen in this country. People on both sides of the aisle seem to have lost the ability (or will) to conduct their own critical analysis or a situation, issue or policy.

Regardless of political leanings, a key question for you readers is:

If the "other guy's" party was in office, and a given situation or policy issue comes up, would you hold the same opinion as if your own party was in office? Or is your opinion dependent on what party is in office?
