  •  there is no tp, per se. it's always been a (7+ / 0-)

    marketing tool created & funded by biz interests for the sole purpose of promoting the illusion of widespread public discontent over the results of the 2008 campaign/election.

    iow, the rw's choice of candidates didn't win, so it's time for everyone to man the barricades with pitchforks b/c we didn't win!!  it's the same philosophy the rw employs everytime they lose the wh, only in 2008 they decided to kick it up a notch b/c a black guy won & that made things way scarier.

    the gop is the political arm of the big biz/ws plutocracy, fox noise is its main propaganda conduit, & the tp is a ploy to gain more members for its ranks b/c they're dying off at an unsustainable rate.

    •  It reminds me of Orwell's 1984 (1+ / 0-)
