In One Eye
Sunday, May 08, 2005
As I indicated a few posts ago, it sure is interesting that Gorgeous George's poll numbers are so low mere months after an apparently successful election. I appear to be not alone in observing this seeming anomaly. Columnist Robert C. Koehler discusses the possibility of a rigged election, and the nefarious repercussions, here, here, and here.
In two of the columns, Koehler quotes exit poll analyst Jonathan Simon: “When the autopsy of our democracy is performed, it is my belief that media silence will be given as the primary cause of death.”
The Bushies talk a good game about spreading democracy throughout the world, but, like just about all they say, they're lying since they seem to care not a whit for democracy in their own country. Certainly the US's mainstream conglomerate controlled media seems disinclined to point out their mendacity. It might just be up to the Internet to save our nation's democracy.
