Once They Run Out Of Fingers and Toes, CNN Loses Count...

Here is a picture of the "Tea Party" crowd that showed up yesterday to denounce Harry Reid and ObamaCare, and to be inspired by the words of Sarah Palin:

Here is how this crowd was described by CNN:

"Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin there in Searchlight, Nev., was the backyard of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, but today it's the backdrop of this Tea Party Express - making a stop here," Whitfield said. "Hundreds of people, at least dozens of people - we haven't gotten a count of how many people turned out there.

Sheer idiocy? Or state-run media trying to protect the status quo? CNN's Fredericka Whitfield gives CNN's viewers everything she feels they need to know about this rally:

"Also trying to kind of explain or structure the language she has used about reloading America," Whitfield said. "Many people talked about some of the language that's been used by Republicans, including her as inciting violence as a result of the health care vote. She says she is not inciting violence.

The media is doing everything they can to de-legitimize opposition to the socialization of medicine in the United States. Crowds estimated to be in the tens of thousands are reduced to dozens, and focus is placed on conservatives forced to defend themselves against bogus charges - ginned up by the media - of racism.
This is going to be the conservative's greatest challenge in regaining power this November: Getting the message past a media which is willing to broadcast non-stop falsehoods in order to protect the Democratic party. They have already proven themselves to be the worst type of partisan attack dogs - refusing to report on Obamacare, demonizing its detractors, and trumpeting false charges of racism against the administration's opponents. The Right must figure out a way to get their message around this - not just to their own supporters, but to the great Middle - or their wins in November will be much narrower than they ought to.

There is hope that this complete disconnection with reality - the media blaring the success of Obama's policies while the nation visibly crumbles into ruin - will discredit the media, make mockery of their passion for liberal rule, and see them tuned out by the majority of Americans looking to make informed decisions.

But for now, they are poison to the body politic. If we can't defeat them, we cannot defeat the Democrats. Brighter minds than mine need to figure out a way to co-opt their message, before the people are in fact fooled again....
