This American Election is a BlogTalkRadio program for political junkies addicted to the horse race. It airs every Sunday and runs for one hour. You can call in to (347) 324-3592 to listen to the show, or to speak to us. This weeks topics include:
- Ambassador Stevens Diary
- Developments in Middle East
- The stink of desperate Obots
- Media Freakshow
- Romney: Voters, lies, and video
One of the topics Anthony and I will be discussing for the media freakshow segment is this beautiful little example of pure Obot paranoia. It has all the typical progressive tropes, all the subtext of progressive racist, as well as the class resentments so often found among six-figure-earning, white New York journalists like Elizabeth Drew. Here’s the opening line:
The Republicans’ plan is that if they can’t buy the 2012 election they will steal it.
The projection gets so much worse from there. For the record, Drew’ been pushing this narrative for a while. Here she is working it up in February of this year.
What are you reading this today? Anything special you want discussed on the show?
This is an open thread.
