Now that the McCain-Palin rallies are the 21st century KKK cross 1burning, the MSM is happy to broadcast the warmed over hate speak and life-threatening rants of McCain, Palin and low-IQ supporter. We've entered the anything is on the table period of the McCain campaign.
As I wrote a few weeks ago, however, it won't be the rural white voters who just can't vote for a black man. It won't be the Hillraisers who voted for McCain. It won't be Bill Clinton's underwhelming support of Obama. It won't be Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh. It won't be Obama's lack of foreign policy experience. It won't Ayers, Wright or Rezco. It won't be the POW. It won't be the pretty lady who's foreign policy credential includes being able to see Russia from Alaska. These are all smoke screens to shield the real culprit. Join me below. It will be pretty obvious who we can blame if Obama loses.
It will be their coverage of the republican and democratic campaigns that was designed to keep ratings high and the race close. It will be the campaign advertising they accepted with full knowledge they contained lies, half truths and sleazy ennuendo. It will be their willingness to allow McCain to go unchecked for most of the general election campaign because they were his base.
It will be their willingness to participate in the McCain distractions of the week. It will be their obsession with reminding voters that Obama is black through mock polls of white democrats. It will be their obsession with battleground polls that change daily. It will be their silence when they know McCain surrogates are lying. It will be their silence when surrogates don't answer questions. It will be their willingness to loop McCain's unpaid celebrity ads as news. It will be their silence when uber-elite billionaires call Obama elite. Elite! WOW! That's rich! It will be their willingness to allow the word elite to be code for "uppity," that racially charged southern word that whites use to suggest that blacks have step out of line without permission. How dare Obama think he can be president! Who does he think he is?
It will be their going along while McCain marginalized Obama's education, legal experience, state legislative and US senate experience. It will be their failure to acknowledge that Palin is NOT more qualified than Obama just because she had the titles of mayor and governor. It is their willingness to watch Palin as a nominee in training. It is their willingness to ask the stupid question: is Palin qualified to be president as if McCain will ever say that she isn't. It is their willingness not to look further into McCain's navy records or medical records. It will be their willingness to give deference to the white candidate no matter what. To feed into the entitlement mindset of the white candidate. To believe the white candidate's surrogates over the Obama surrogates.
Yes, the MSM will be responsible if Obama loses. Their lack of reporting, inept opining, incomplete analysis and mondane pontificating will all conspire to usher McCain into the White House. We have got to SCREAM at the MSM to do their jobs and get out of the way. It's not about them.
Take the poll.
