This sudden collapse of the Republican image disturbs me
Advertisements [?]I can not put my finger on it but something is very wrong. We are being misinformed on a grand scale,that's clear to see.
I am certain that the media polls are cooked. By 'media polls' I mean which ever ones are constantly cited by the 'news' shows on TV; these are the polls that show McCain and Obama more or less even. Nonsense. You have only to strike up a conversation with anyone on the street to know how bad things are for the Republicans.
The people; you, me, the kid next door, and that other ethnic group on the other side of town or the other part of the state, we all get it. The tragedy which has been the Bush years has opened the eyes of lots of folks to the basic failings of the Republican ideology from Nixon until today. Never the less the news marches on. "McCain and Obama in a dead heat." It doesn't seem to make any difference just how bad the choices the Republican Party makes either. McCain doesn't have much of anything going for him and his pick for VP is astoundingly foolish. All of this but something's not right. Why aren't the elite of the Republican Party panicking? They certainly should be. They have eyes to see and ears to hear - more than are legal actually - they have to know. Still, you see no revolt anywhere in their leadership. Those people are far to self-centered to go down with the ship but I don't even see them manning the lifeboats. I don't understand it but it feels vaguely threatening. I do not trust those bastards at any level.
