GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD

What does John McCain's dick taste like?

I don't know, ask Chris Matthews (or Brian Williams, or any other anchor who makes the joke work for you).

As we get deeper into this election it is becoming increasingly obvious that we are wasting a whole lot of time, money, and energy. If the media's behavior for the past three months continues for the next six, then the election is going to be a foregone conclusion. The status quo – every single word Obama says, every person he's ever met in his life, and every square inch of his past is put under a microscope and blasted with both barrels while McCain parades around in a halo – means that the outcome in November is predetermined.

As you try to restrain yourself from killing someone the next time you hear the phrase "Reverend Wright," just try to imagine what the media would be doing to the Democratic candidates if they had John McCain's 2008. Imagine what they'd do to Obama if he said he didn't know dick about the economy. Imagine what Hannity would say about Clinton if she didn't know the difference between Sunni and Shia, Iran and Iraq. Imagine the temperature of the coals over which they'd be raked if they blathered on about fighting the influence of lobbyists while being one of the biggest hookers in Washington.

People essentially receive no information about the election that doesn't come from the media.

If they persist in the pattern of giving overwhelming skepticism and scrutiny to one party while responding to the other with slack-jawed credulity and stenography, I am more than dubious that average voters will take it upon themselves to ask skeptical questions and research the answers.

  • It's true; we're fucked.

    You know, you may as well change that "If" in the second sentence of the third paragraph (the one that starts "As we get deeper…") to a "When."

  • It's one long daisy chain. McSame has been sucking off aWol and everyone on the religous Reich and the so-called liberal media sucks off McSame. If the MSM spent half as much time on the issues as they do on who Obama knows that might make a juicy bit of gossip, we might actually learn something about where the candidates stand. The Big Money that controls the media does not want an informed public because they would have huge numbers of pissed off people on their hands.

  • Find some solace in the fact that most people don't vote. And then that democrats have the highest numbers of newly registered voters.

    Then again I haven't been wrong once in the last ten years going by this creed. " If you want it and its good for everyone, it will not happen".

  • I'm not one of those people who wishes this campaign would just end, I wish we didn't have 24 hours news covering it and, even worse, analyzing it.

    For example, the case is being made that Obama can't win the big states in November because he can't win them now…I'm sure that is some sort of logical fallacy…regardless now the media is picking up on that argument and "analyzing" which then makes people believe it as gospel, which then affects the polling.

    Seeing this election go to every state is actually very entertaining to me, but the media created controversy is driving me crazy.

  • Oh please,
    A far leftist like Burmila complaining about a CONSERVATIVE bias in the media?
    The reason the dems are in the spotlight now is because they are in a heated primary race. McCain is on hold.
