Just as the media is praising Obama for a campaign well run (by them) while projecting on McCain (and earlier on Hillary) its sins, the truth is becoming more and more evident: hatred is the force behind this campaign.

Observes Riverdaughter

Just as Nixon and Reagan tapped into racial resentment in the American electorate to bring us decades of Republicans in the White House, Democrats have tapped into misogynism to win it for Obama in 2008.  In both cases, the antagonism, prejudice and bad behavior had been held in check by societal norms but was released when the candidate and the media gave silent approval.

Indeed, as SNL once coined it: “Bitch is the new black”

The Obama campaign and the DNC has done away with all that.  They know that “misogyny sells”.  For men and women who feel helpless to change their own circumstances, misogyny gives them a place to direct their anger and take power.  Women become the convenient scapegoats like the stereotypical African American “welfare queens” who didn’t exist or German Jews after the Armistice at Versailles.

So, now, calling a candidate inexperienced or socialist is condemned as racist, while women are called by the pundits cunts and bitches, and “reminding men of their first wives” (Hillary) or promised rape “by my black brothers” (Palin). Palin and her daughter Piper can be shot at by “art lovers”, McCain women supporters beaten up, Palin being knocked out in “funny” videos and drawings.

And what’s Obama doing about it?

After that stunning poll in  Military Times , here are the consequences:

Fairfax Virginia is tossing their votes away

Military ballots are being tossed in Fairfax Co, VA because of a “technicality.”

You should have stayed quiet, guys. Like the 80% who hang up on pollsters.

Fairfax general registrar Rokey Suleman said Thursday that he has had to reject some of the ballots because of a Virginia law passed in 2002. That law — then called Senate Bill 113, sponsored by then state Sen. Bill Bolling — requires that when an overseas citizen wants to request an absentee ballot and cast a vote with the same paperwork, it requires not only a witness signature but also the current address of the witness.

Aparently, the ballots themselves were not changed for the new requirements

The McCain campaign said there’s not even a space for the witness to list an address. Suleman agreed; he said the federal document was changed in recent years and the space for the witness address was removed. But the Virginia law hasn’t changed.

In other words, the soldiers made no mistakes on their ballot, the state did. The soldiers are just paying for it. Or rather for voting for the wrong candidate.

I am actually surprised to read this from Mark Ambinder

Democrats insist they’re biased towards access… so will they try to intervene on behalf of these voters?

I think not. You’re out of luck soldiers. out there fighting , instead of having messy ballots by ACORN…plus of course, voting for the wrong candidate.

Just the day that New York Times shocked everyone (not) adding its endorsement to the media candidate

we find that it’s stock

The stock closed at 10.70 today, a loss of half its value in 6 months.

Moody’s said it may cut the New York Times from “Baa3,” the lowest investment grade. Downgrades into junk territory can significantly increase a company’s borrowing costs.

Junk territory? How appropriate is this? Let’s look at that endirsement, shall we?

As tough as the times are, the selection of a new president is easy. After nearly two years of a grueling and ugly campaign, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois has proved that he is the right choice to be the 44th president of the United States.

Obviously, NYT has seem a different ugly than I did. In fact, I may ass, they waged it.
