Think They Don't Do This On Purpose?

Corporate media is in full mind control mode with the presidential campaign. If there were a free and fair election Obama would crush McCain at the polls, but of course there won't be a free and fair election; there hasn't been one in years. The job of the corporate media is to make you think that it's a real horserace, that half the country supports the fascists and their crimes and their likely successor. It's an all out propaganda con job to make you believe McCain' candidacy is more than a pathetic train wreck and opposition to our burgeoning police state is less than widespread.
In reality the gap between the candidates' support is huge and MSM is tasked to make it seem narrow, so rigging the "election" won't be such a daunting proposition this time around. Even with intense propaganda efforts and vote fraud, as things stand I predict that election day will be worthy of our new third world status, replete with many abnormalities and instances of criminal behavior. Meanwhile corporate media is well into it's 24/7 mindfuck.

Oopsie, we labeled Osama as Obama, again


What's that repug message, that he's an uppity rock star or something?

"Take this truly ridiculous WaPo item today.
In his closed door meeting with House Democrats Tuesday night, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama delivered a real zinger, according to a witness, suggesting that he was beginning to believe his own hype.
Obama was waxing lyrical about last week’s trip to Europe, when he concluded, according to the meeting attendee, “this is the moment, as Nancy [Pelosi] noted, that the world is waiting for.”
The 200,000 souls who thronged to his speech in Berlin came not just for him, he told the enthralled audience of congressional representatives. “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions,” he said, according to the source.
The piece was written the WaPo’s Jonathan Weisman, perhaps best known for
recently telling Post readers, “The great irony is that [Obama] is much more white than black, beyond skin color,” whatever the hell that means.
Conservatives have gone
completely berserk over the notion that Obama described himself as “a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.” The Republican National Convention has been pushing the quote relentlessly all morning, as has the McCain campaign.
There’s just one small problem: the anonymous quote Weisman used actually had it backwards.A Democratic leadership aide — who, unlike the media, was in the room during Obama’s remarks — has been emailing reporters this morning:
“His entire point of that riff was that the campaign IS NOT about him. The Post left out the important first half of the sentence, which was something along the lines of: ‘It has become increasingly clear in my travel, the campaign, that the crowds, the enthusiasm, 200,000 people in Berlin, is not about me at all. It’s about America. I have just become a symbol….”
In other words, this wasn’t an example of Obama being “arrogant” or “presumptuous”; it’s an example of humility. He was saying all of this excitement isn’t about him personally, because he’s just a symbol of something larger.
Of course, we’ve reached a point at which reality no longer matters."

Yes, you are spot on, the Prez 2008 election will be rigged in favor of McBush and Obama will lose by somewhere between 3% to 5% and "nice try, boy" from the MSM and from McCain himself.

Millions of voters are being purged from voter reg rolls and they won't find out until they show up to their local polling place and find their name is no longer on the voting reg roll, until it is too late.

Then of course rolling out all these damn electronic voting machines where there is no paper trail and there is no way to figure out if any fixes have been put in place to program the election outcome as happened with the Diebold machines in Georgia during the 2002 Senate election. fixing the Diebold machines resulted in Sen Cleland's 12% margin being shrunk to a -2 loss.

Thanks for the links.
Yes, Cleland's stolen victory was one of the most egregious in the last several years.

It makes me just want to put my head in the sand and start ripping out my feathers.
