“It’s why I fear McCain will probably win the election next year. His snarky rictus of a smile, his near pyschotic glare and his rigid and robotic body movements all reflect the collective malaise of the nation.”

Articles Just Not Seen….Elsewhere
Florida police made public two notes handwritten by Deborah Jeane Palfrey this weekend, touching off debate on whether her hanging was in fact suicide or staged to look so. At least one reporter is claiming the DC Madam mentioned she’d kill herself before returning to prison, but another interviewer has aired recent audio of Palfrey warning that if she was found dead, it would be murder.
Initial reports of Palfrey’s death conclusively ruled it a suicide, a bit hasty considering the magnitude of the sensitive secrets she held. I first heard the news on an NPR broadcast Thursday afternoon which included an official’s soundbyte on how relatives are victimized in suicides, a strange generalization that pointed blame at Palfrey for hurting her own mother before any other details of the case were released. This statement was attached to the breaking news by an “imbedded pundit”, only raising suspicion of media manipulation in the earliest going.
Napolitano – A Nation of Sheep
May 8, 2008
Two news articles recently appeared in their respective newspapers.
Both articles deal with the same news story but the difference in the way that the stories were written is significant.
The first article makes it clear that the aliens who attempted to procure driver’s licenses through fraud were from so-called “special interest countries,” that is to say, countries that are linked to terrorism. The second article describes these aliens as coming from “New Jersey!”
I know that New Jersey may seem to be an unusual state for folks from other parts of the country, but in point of fact, New Jersey is, in fact one of our nation’s 50 states. The illegal aliens did, obviously travel from New Jersey to New Mexico, but it is curious that the author of the second article attempted to ignore the fact that the individuals who attempted to obtain driver’s licenses through fraud were, illegal aliens.
