We won, we won, we won the debate!!!

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments

What a sham!! What a flim-flam, snake oil scam we were treated to last night.

Part of me wants to clap and cheer for the fact that the home cooked propaganda machine has the stones to go this far. What a performance!!

Bravo boys, you kept up the face, focusing with the intensity of real journalists.

Imagine how much self control must it take for the former White House Press Secretary to probe deeply into the fabric of the lapel pin crisis burning in the voter's minds. OMG!!

At this point even the dim bulbs in the audience know that the future of the free world shouldn't kick off a discussion with questions that would be fitting from the bleachers in a middle school contest.

C'mon, we know that Dubya in the Oval Office has taken the image of "Presidential" and transformed it to a bar stool slouch, a smirk and a smattering of garbled English. But you folks in the Press, it's your job!! 

Presumably you are hired for the same type of research and writing that has earned Newsvine's top political commentators their status. You know some history, you research meticulously, write clear, concise, insightful questions that are well thought out and discussed with peers.

If there are no resources at hand, venture into cyberspace. Many great minds, at a myriad of sites have wisdom and insight to spare. There's news out here too; swing by Newsvine.  We get smarter here.

Drop by OpEd for a read.  We're too well informed and too deeply invested in a country of democracy, freedoms and rights to stand by and watch sellouts drown our voices. We are tired of being lied to, manipulated and robbed.

Bush has put as much of America's public and private resources as he possibly can in the Wall Street pockets. He has delivered big time. That swagger is from believing deeply, that the law of this land is the man who holds the gold and makes the rules.

He's a Bonesman, untouched and untouchable, as are his circle of friendsters who pay vigorously and thrive. How are the BushCo crowd doing in his Administration? They're all richer and serving as Board members, roaming free, one and all with a bank in the Bahamas. How sweet it is. How much more could one man do?

Not much at all without the support of the Fourth Estate and Boardroom agenda in synch. Think of the hubris and ego it took for a cadre of friendsters in the Boardroom to decide voters should hear fashion news. And they thought we the sheeple would buy it??

Silly them. We know that to be truly fair and balanced the Fab Five should have had time to ask about Hillary's pantsuits to counter the guest spot with the lapel pin.

Part of me feels like we won. How many years have we been here sharing details of lies and deceptions, errors and omissions of Washington that are ignored by corporate media? How many of us have lamented the viewing population who have no clue how lame and skewed the coverage is?

Thanks to ABC it's now pretty clear we're getting a boatload of the dog's business. Thanks to the involved and informed citizenry here and elsewhere the mainstream is getting called out at long last. Hip hooray!! Go us!!
