Apparently the September 12 protest in Washington wasn't enough for the Birthers/Deathers/Teabaggers to get everything out of their system (or perhaps too many people couldn't make it, accounting for the modest turnout in comparison to the promised numbers...). So, a new movement has been born, a new date has been selected and a new target of wrath has been identified. Yes, its time to (all together now...) Blame the Media! (more over the fold).
Thanks to the miracle of social networking, (and the discounted URL registration fee at Godaddy), Operation: Can You Hear Us Now? has been born (apparently without sponsorship by Verizon). Their bold plan is to target Saturday, October 17 (don't they know nobody watches TV on Saturdays?) as March on the Media Day, which proposes to "divide and conquer" by taking those two million Tea-Party attenders (yes, they were really there!) and divide them up among all the commie-liberal loving TV and radio stations and network offices to "Protest big government, small minds in Congress, and liberal media atrocities in reporting".
This will of course be fraught with challenges (not the least is finding a fake turnout photo for each location), since they'll be protesting the bias of the media, and then going home to "Turn on the TV and see if they saw you". (of course, if the media doesn't cover a half-dozen people outside a TV studio, that's solid evidence that the bias continues, isn't it?). Despite the daunting obstacles however, the true patriots have geared up (so far) to hit all the major media centers of America: Scranton, PA; Zanesville, OH; Salem, OR; Boise, ID; New Haven, CT; Grand Rapids, MI; Rochester, NY; and Roseburg, OR.
Should you attend? Well you're certainly invited. In fact, this is a strictly non-partisan affair, as long as you're one of their "freedom-loving, American-loving, free-speech loving friends".
Hmm....maybe we should show up after all?
