This little tempest in a teapot is on its second or third day already. Barack Obama, referring to Sarah Palin, said that if you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig. An enormously over-sized media- and McCain campaign-induced uproar ensued, and the American electorate is stupid enough to be distracted by it.
Meanwhile, under the leadership of Ron Paul, a number of the third party candidates met this morning at the national press club to express their agreement on four very important issues: the Iraq war, privacy rights, the national debt, and the Federal Reserve. But I wouldn’t exactly look for this to show up on the MSM. [Correction: Apparently it was streamed on CNN’s website. Was it broadcast on TV??]
Bob Barr, by the way, bailed on Paul, showing himself to be the fraud that many of us suspected he is. He may be running for the LP, but he’s still to the Left of Reagan.
