MEANWHILE, OVER IN THE PARALLEL UNIVERSE...
I know I care about this a lot more than you do, but I'd like to point out that none of the stories most of us have been paying attention to in recent days -- Komen and Planned Parenthood, Romney's "truly poor" remark, the Trump endorsement, the job numbers -- have been a big deal over at Fox Nation. Over there, the only story that matters is Fast and Furious. This is the lead story at Fox Nation now, as it has been for most of the day; prior to that, this was the lead story for most of yesterday.
I've got to say that I'm not sure why the right-wing noise machine is failing to make Fast and Furious a big deal in the country at large. I know Fast and Furious isn't getting much coverage outside of Fox and talk radio, but neither did the ACORN and "Ground Zero mosque" stories at first. Is the GOP Wurlitzer starting to creak?
Maybe it's that, which would be nice. Or maybe this is specific to Fast and Furious.
I think part of the problem is that the message of the righties on F&F is that the Obama White House didn't do a good enough job controlling guns. Hunh? Aren't you righties always telling us that Obama has both the desire to control all guns and totalitarian superpowers that allow him to disarm the masses whenever he sees fit? Isn't your message here just the opposite?
And aren't you the ones who say that allowing a country to become awash in guns is always a good thing? So if the administration let a bunch of guns into Mexico, shouldn't that have been a positive development -- by your usual standards?
Sorry, guys, it's kind of a muddled message.
