It is very odd.

1. I agree. It bugs me that they seem to be playing a game with us
I can't believe that serious media buys in to the right wing fundies, but they sure get alot of air time. Their live shots make it look like threre's a huge crowd when it's just a bunch of nuts. What kind of game are they playing with us?

2. I'm not sure
For a long time, I thought the game was merely money; ratings and advertising revenue. Over the last few years, though, I am beginning to suspect that is a flawed theory and there is a real attempt at manipulation.

It is really starting to bother me.
