The Cain clown show: pitting wingnut against wingnut.

The entirely predictable and farcical spectacle that is the Herman Cain presidential campaign is ripping Wingnuttia apart.

Here's Ace of Spades tearing El Rushbo a new one.

Here's what I believe: Any idiot who kneejerkedly takes a position directly contrary to what they think the media is saying is just as much a prisoner of the media's mind-wash as the most goosestepping liberal.

If you always take a position contrary to what Mr. Media says -- if Mr. Media says x, so you decide "anti-x" -- then Mr. Media still controls your brain. Because by saying x they dictate you will, without a moment's thought, brainlessly parrot back "anti-x!"

Whether Herman Cain is innocent or guilty of what he is alleged to have done is wholly independent of whether the media "wants" him to be guilty.


Ater years of "Al Gore is fat" jokes, after Putz spent the better part of a decade insisting we must be "winning" in Iraq because the media reported that we were losing, after the GOP compared Mitt Romney's health care plan to the Holocaust when Obama proposed it -- after all that, Ace is just now realizing that the entire conservative movement kneejerkedly takes positions based on what liberals and the media are saying? Seriously?
today’s conservatism is the opposite of what liberals want today: updated daily.
Yep, and it's been that way for a long time. Ace hasn't been paying attention.
