Could there be any MORE Iraq vote propaganda on CNN?
Or Faux or MSGOP?

I'm kind of jealous.

What it must be like to vote with a pen and paper.

They are expecting a ten percent turnout...but in Bush terms it's a mandate.

2. Could someone explain to me.....
why Iraqi's who have become American Citizens are permitted to vote in this election? That seems odd to me - they don't have to live with the consequences of their vote. Do American's who have gotten citizenship somewhere else still get to vote in American presidential elections?

3. So isn't it really 10% of 50% = 5%? Since there will be elections
in only half the country?

5. No shit! This time around I think we should hold the media accountable!
We've been letting them play us for fools for too long! We should scream so loud they can't ignore us! If they continue this BS- maybe we should turn to the foreign press for help! Is that a stupid idea or do you think it might merit some thought!? Just thinking out loud!

6. I guess this is "media transparency"
you can see right through it.

8. Maybe I'm naive but I'm stil trying to influence the media morons
I think they listen to viewers if enough write in. My latest plan involves targeting Chris Matthews since he seem to have woken up a bit lately.

I posted this request for people to e-mail Matthews earlier:

So far my post got no response so I guess most DUers think it's not worth the effort.

9. Now if you see a mob of Iraqis,
standing in line to vote, smiling, laughing, getting ready to "change the world" on Sunday, look closely at their back pocket.

There might be a $50.00 bill hanging out as the US heavily bribes the population to do its bidding.

Fox News will show the same bunch over and over again all weekend, and proclaim victory, success, triumph against all odds.

Watch for the same clip.
