Now that the dog and pony show has commenced, pattern's are emerging. Apart from the 100 hour tap dance on domestic issues designed to allegedly distract the American people from the continued death and destruction in Iraq, I've noticed something else which began immediately after the Dems won back Congress: The onslaught of daily reports honoring "Fallen heroes" in Iraq in the media, seems to have ended very abruptly. In the last 6 months leading up to the 2006 mid terms, it seemed you couldn't turn on cable news without an hourly update on the losses of individual soldiers. Now it's difficult to even find one. Suspicious? You better believe it. Why, and what really does it mean? Being the conspiratorial sort without apology-, I believe there were agendas being undertaken by top-down directives within the media, and there still are.
