WHY THE FANATIC RIGHT WILL WIN !
The fanatical extremist rightist cadres will win the politics of the USA as long as media commentators, editiorialists, and hack news writers continue to make believe that low-brow, rightwing, talk radio is normal rather than an unprecedented infection in our political and public culture generally. Because this relentlessly lying and belligerent mutation of media is a new breed of civic poison in America.

Calculated Political Lies Are Violence !
Now many commentators are correctly decrying the loathsome and immoral tendency of rightwing politicians and their swinish media courtiers to overtly champion political violence via a relentless barrage of violent imagery, ie, Sharron Angle and her "2nd Amendment Solution".
Routine political lying is even worse because the lies are deliberately and specifically calculated to
frighten and enrage.

How Talk Radio Plays the GOP for Chumps

Congressman Peter King's War on American Health....An Open Letter
On Hardball with Chris Matthews the other evening, Congressthing Peter King ejaculated lying rightist boilerplate all over the compliant Matthews while demonizing the concept of healthcare for the American people who pay his immense salary and fund his own comprehensive government provided health insurance plan. In this open letter to this Congressthing I deconstruct his rightist lies.
The Fairness Doctrine Isn't Enough !
All the right-wing blather against the "Fairness Doctrine" deliberately obscures the true degeneracy of the relentless torrent of blatant right-wing lying in all their media manifestations. It isn't at all an exaggeration to acknowledge that the modern right-wing movement has been and continures to be propelled by outright lies at the highest level of the Republican party. It is a crime; a violent crime against the nation.
