    that is...

    imagine how much better this country would be if the media actually did their jobs.

    do these jerkholes feel no shame about 2001-2009? it's their fault Bush was elected in the first place.

      How do you think Fox watchers would feel if they were forced to watch factual news?  Not happy campers, that's for sure!

      You got your sheep, and you got your black sheep, and I'm not even a sheep. I'm on the freakin' moon.

      is a perfect word for that crap.

      The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

      As the ads for viagra and investment funds indicate, network TV news is becoming desperate for income.  This political season is the last major cash feast they're going to have.  In four years broadcast media simply won't be a central factor.  Many of the older viewers still relying on it will have died off and the kids don't tune in.  It's all internet for them.

      The media needs this election to go down to the wire to call out every million that the Billionaires are willing to spend in the hope of getting Romney elected.  Their salaries depend on it.  They will never have it this good again.  These debates and the advertising saturating the media in battleground states the last circus they're going to have the popcorn franchise for.

      Unless a miracle happens the next election will be controlled by money as well, but far less of that will be spent on TV.  it also wont' be won by land line telephone contact either.  It will be an utterly new world for politics.  I assume going door to door will still be relevant, but we're finding that people don't even come to the door any longer unless someone calls them first.  The public square is empty.  Frankly I dread the effort it is going to take to reach people.
