‘that iraq feeling’

Cartoon from here

Paul Krugman: I don’t watch cable news, or actually any kind of TV news. But I gather that there’s a virtual blackout on the huge demonstrations in Wisconsin, except on Fox, which portrays them as thuggish and violent.

What that makes me think of is January-February 2003, when anyone watching cable news would have believed that only a few kooks were opposed to the imminent invasion of Iraq. It was quite spooky, realizing that hundreds of thousands of people could march through New York, and by tacit agreement be ignored by news networks whose headquarters were just a few blocks away.

And it’s even more spooky to see it happening all over again.

    Now that the republican placed judges on the USSC have ruled that corporations have the same rights as individuals, we are in for it. Walker/Koch know what they’re doing–weaken one of the biggest contributors to the Dems and whoosh!! That’s how the game is played. Too many WIites stayed home instead of voting. SO BE IT!
