Seeing red

Such a large (is it that large?) & vocal contingent that sees red when they hear the words "government" or "regulation" . To drown out their own ever-more ear-splitting cognitive dissonance in the face of economic disaster & obvious signs of climate change, they shout it out all the louder these days thru the blowhorns of Fox News, CNN, AM talk shows etc. etc. So loud they gain a kind of phony credibility -- so that the Washington Post features an op ed by who guessed it? Sarah Palin...

In case you missed it, here's Jon Stewart fleecing the onion skins off her + CNN et al. (For those of you outside Canada, it's Nov. 18, 2009 Clip 1 on the Daily Show site accessible to you.) I think he truly nails it here. Classic Daily Show.
