Feet of Clay

As expected, as soon as one candidate shows signs of pulling ahead, and only when one candidate shows signs of pulling ahead, the MSM stampedes in the opposite direction:

I'm becoming increasingly convinced they're treating this as I would a football game played by teams I don't care about... they just want it to be close, and (in their case) they root for whoever is playing defense on that particular play. Ball changes hands, they change sides. Except, of course, when I do that it doesn't actually influence the outcome of the game.

eMail this entry!

I am so tired of this whole election season it has been over a year since it started. I am much more interested in the fact that my retirement account is shrinking and not the fact that Obama knows Bill Ayres! I marched against the Vietnam War when I was 7 months pregnant with you, I guess my back ground is suspect. lol

Actually, I think it may well be best for all concerned if--the actual truth be damned--the MSM reports that the race is more or less a dead-heat. Why?
Because if it's (portrayed as) really close, more people will assume their one vote will make a real difference, and head to the polls to make their voice heard, rather than just accepting fait accompli and slacking off (as per usual), letting others decide.
