Plus, ‘Obama’ and ‘Fidel’ Both Have Five Letters
Obviously I watched Glenn Reynolds’ “American Tea Party” interview with Publius Pundit blogger Robert Mayer as soon as I could. I’ve been familiar with Publius Pundit for years as a site that covered popular revolutions in third world nations. Mayer informs viewers of the PajamasTV show that the Tea Party anger is the “same kind you see in all of these countries that have had these revolutions.”
Weren’t those revolutions in countries that didn’t have functioning democracies? Well, so is this one! People are angry, says Mayer, “whether it’s due to massive electoral fraud or the emergence of big corrupt banks with big corrupt politicians.”
I’d thought, somewhat naively, that President Obama’s decisive winning margin ended the agonizing “not my president” debates of 2001-2005 and to a lesser extent (thanks for nothing, Greg Palast) 2005-2009. But maybe, just maybe, ACORN scared up 9.5 million fake votes for Obama. Who can say, really?
