An Illustrated Guide to Mendacity and Folly in the Imperium Americanum

Yes, Virginia, there IS just one Election Day…

The old Two Election Day trick

The old Two Election Day trick

After all the hoohah in 2000 about deciding the election THAT DAY, Republican dirty trick operators think they can still get away with the old two-election day dodge. This goes back to Jim Crow politics where black people were told that white people voted on Tuesday and blacks could vote on Wednesday, but it became more PC by dividing it between Republicans and Democrats instead of whites and blacks. But it shows you who they’re trying to catch, doesn’t it? Yup, it’s true–the fliers were circulated in my home state of Virginia: (AFP) ‘Dirty tricks’ escalate as US election nears. As the article states, “These practices commonly target minorities — who this year overwhelmingly support Barack Obama — and while most states prohibit making false statements regarding elections, the laws are difficult to enforce.” Who knows who actually circulated those fliers? you can be sure there’s no direct link to the RNC. Nor will anyone catch who printed up those press-apply “s” stickers to be applied over the b in Obama so that yard signs would read “Osama-Biden.” It’s all about voter suppression, specifically, voters for Obama. The cry of “Voter Fraud” is shouted from the rooftops–and Fox News–to cover up their own misdeeds. The Republican party has run one of the dirtiest, sleaziest campaigns in the last 60 years–and it might not stop there. See BlackboxVoting.org for what might happen as the votes are actually counted.

One Thing You Can Say About This Crowd–They NEVER Get Tired Of Repeating Themselves

Roger Ailes, former Republican campaign adviser and present Faux News CEO and Chairman, made this joke at the Radio Television News Directors Association and Foundation dinner: “And it is true that Barack Obama is on the move. I don’t know if it’s true that President Bush called Musharraf and said, ‘Why can’t we catch this guy?'” The Democrats are glad to have an excuse not to appear on Faux. But, if you ignore the fact that Ailes is trying to run that Obama/Osama business into the ground, the joke could really be about how stupid Bush is. But I wouldn’t push it that far. Given the bias of Ailes and his so-called News Network, it’s another attempt to exploit the similarity of the names and make Barack Obama look like a foreigner and a terrorist
