A Rambling Post For Friday
I’m going to be on the road for the next ten days so blogging may be a little sporadic. Hopefully my boys, Man of American Dissent and Mark W. Bradley, will help me out and keep you entertained on the days that I can’t find internet access, although I figure that even rural areas and seaside towns have at least one Starbucks. I won’t drink the coffee, but I’ll surely use their WiFi!
If you haven’t already checked out this disgusting ad, do so now. Apparently the GOP thinks that black folks are stupid and will fall for their revisionist history lesson, including such gems as Democrats started the KKK and Dr. King was surely a Republican! I’m not going to say that the Democrats are the answer to anything, but I will say that liberals are (not to mention that we have a proven track record of supporting minorities of all stripes), and there aren’t any liberal Republicans anymore. The GOP is corrupt, cynical, backwards and will do anything to hide their true purpose, namely widening the gap between the haves and the have-nots! Mission Accomplished on that one.
In an interesting and rare, truth on television moment yesterday, Nora O’Donnell had Greg Palast on MSNBC and he threw out some truth bombs that made the Republican guest go apoplectic and Ms. O’Donnell go silent for a change. It was great fun to watch, I wish there was a video. Palast was on to talk about Hugo Chavez and his speech at the UN and Palast tossed out that Chavez was just saying what 90% of the rest of the world is thinking. He also said that most of the world knows that Bush stole the presidency through fraud and that it’s time the American people heard it as well! I guess real journalists aren’t afraid to speak the truth on television, I mean really, what are they gonna do, have Homeland Security pick him up and toss him in jail? Oh, yeah, they already did that but even that didn’t shut him up.
I get the feeling that MSNBC executives see dollar signs when they look at us liberals clamoring for some real news on television. We’ll have to keep their motivations in mind if they do decide to claim the identity of “liberal cable news network”. Perhaps their slogan can be, “We don’t care about democracy, but there are barrels full of money to be made pretending that we do.”
