Speaking of politcal propaganda...


I was thrilled that so many people in my state turned out to vote in this primary - and that we picked Obama by a LANDSLIDE. Mr. Riot Kitty and I were watching an interview with Hillary Clinton's Oregon director as the polls came in. Classic:

Reporter: So are you at least ready to concede Oregon?
Hillary Director: We're going to wait until the latest numbers come in...

*Flash to the latest numbers, showing Obama leading, 60% to 40%*

I can't help but be thrilled that Republicans "sat this one out," as The Oregonian put it, because the GOP in my state and nationally has been so poisonous for so long.

Would you believe that a Republican president (Ike) had warned against building up the military industrial complex? Had created a national parks system (TR)? Had funded the arts (Nixon)?

These people aren't really Republicans, my conservative acquaintances tell me - they're neocons who are pretending to sell out to born-agains.

But just to lighten the mood, I've included a picture of my favorite candidate...
