National Enquirer Piles On: cover story on Obama marriage
When the media goes all out to destroy somebody, the shit comes from every direction. Just passed the supermarket counter and the cover story is "Obama Marriage Breaking Up - Wife Accuses him of Cheating" or some such.
I know it's just the Enquirer but it has a low information voter readership and it's kind of a weird indicator of when things are really going south for somebody.
For more on whose friend and financial backer owns the Enquirer, here is an October article from Ben Smith at Politico when the rag ran a story about the Edwards' marriage.
18. I'm considering the merits of a maximum voting age.
And I'm only sort of kidding about that, too. Recently, some volunteers circulating nominating petitions here in Arizona reported that there were Democratic voters in a retirement community who refused to sign the petition of an African-American candidate, for no other reason than because he was black.
A reputation for actually being right occasionally, like a stopped clock twice a day.
I personally have no knowledge or belief in there being any substance to it, by the way.
But I wouldn't characterize the media as going all out to target Obama; running for the Democratic nomination and the presidency, he's fair game. I'd be more concerned when the serious, mainstream journalists (do we really have them anymore, of any partisan stripe?) take off the gloves.
Speaking of "low-information voters", maybe we're relying a little too much on the internet, bloggers, and TV. And what we read while standing in the checkout line.
31. Whatever happened with the Saddam Hussein / Osama marriage?
Apparently they had a gay wedding,with Hussein as the bride. It was reported in the Globe. It was real! Honest! They even had a picture of the married couple. Hussein looked stunning in white. (It is sort of odd that he chose a western-style wedding dress though).
A few weeks later the Globe reported that they had "adopted" a chimpanzee as their child, and shaved it to appear more human-like.
