Fresh on the heels of Sarah P’s confession, comes this from Red State

I’m doing this because I doubt much of you know the true weaknesses of Obama. Another reason for my doing this is that I am lost faith in this campaign, and feel that this choice has been forced on many people in this country. Put simply, you are being manipulated.

With her so far. here comes the delusion:

That was and is our job – to manipulate you (the electorate) and the media (we already had them months ago).

OK, I don’t buy that the Obama campaign “manipulated” the media. No one is THAT stupid – mass stupidity. The media is own by corporations which obviously have a stake in installing Obama just as they has one in installing Bush before. They don’t ‘think” Obama is Messiah anymore than they thought W was charming or brave.

I do agree with the empty rhetoric keeping the issues at bay

I’ve come to the realization (as the campaign already has) that if this comes to the issues, Barack Obama doesn’t have a chance. His only chance is to foster disorganization, chaos, despair, and a sense of inevitability among the Republicans. It has worked up until now. Joe the Plumber has put the focus on the issues again, and this scares us more than anything.

And here come the goodies:

1 – Hillary voters. Internal polling suggests that at best, we are taking 70-75% of these voters. Other estimates are as low as 60% in some areas – particularly Ohio and western PA

Palin is attacked because

has singlehanded solidified “soft” Republican support, mobilized the McCain ground game, and has even had some appeal to independents and Hillary voters. This is what our internal polling confirms.

The radical associations – they cry “racism” because

Our focus groups found this out: When McCain brings these connections up, voters are turned off to him. They’d rather take this into consideration themselves, and when this happens, our numbers begin to tank.

Then more on psy-ops

A spirited campaign has been made to infiltrate many pro-Hillary sites and discredit them. A more disorganized, but genuine effort has also been made to sow doubts among the unapologetically right wing sites such as redstate.com. Don’t you guys get it? This has been the Obama campaign’s sole strategy from the very beginning!

and the treatment of Palin changed HER vote

I changed my somewhat positive opinion of this campaign during the unfair and sexist campaign against Sarah Palin. I will never agree with her on the issues and will probably never vote for her, but I am embarrassed of what has happened. I can’t ignore our own hand in all of this. What I do know is that I will not be voting for Obama this time around. Treat that as you will.
