"Even if the idiot Democrats don’t screw it up by themselves, the Republicans will win anyway, because they own the voting machines."On another front, mass media sleaze peddler Fox News, having its free-ride on the public airwaves, is up to no good again:
"FOX News has followed its recent blunder of misidentifying Republican Mark Foley as a Democrat by doing the same with Senate hopeful Sheldon Whitehouse, showing him as a Republican when he is in fact the Democratic candidate for US Senate from Rhode Island."This is no mistake and is a concerted effort. The Associated Press IDed Foley as a Democrat over the weekend too. Meanwhile, Ohio's scumbag state secretary, Kenneth Blackwell, whom, if you can believe Bob Woodward anymore, George Bush considers a 'nut' (which is all a body need know how hoop-dee-doo he really must be), and who was in charge of counting the votes in 2004 as he is this year -- this while running for Governor -- has been sending out mail-in ballots IDing the Democrat as Republican. Talk about the ultimate smear campaign: tarring your opponent as one of your own.
Assuming for the sake of argument, because I don't believe for a second the Oligarchy will let the likes of Mark Foley interrupt their fascist takeover of what's left of America's democracy -- say the Democrats do take over Congress in 2006. Does it not make sense, then, the first order of business should be an anti-Anti-trust measure to decentralize what has become the American corporate media?
Paper balloting'd be nice too.
