|WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)|
Superman's product of the century (so far):
<poking fun> Under intense pressure from Washington state bloggers and the Washington GOP, the MSM print media has begun to enter lock-step mode after all.</poking fun> Maybe it's just that the truth is just a little hard to ignore completely.
Look what was printed on the dead tree on the doorstep this morning. OK, the headline is not 4 inches tall and it's not really an EXTRA edition, but I'll take it: above the fold, headline in the Seattle Times - with a story that suggests that the felonious voting issue alone is enough to throw out the failed WA gubernatorial election.
This is good enough that I'll 'check off' headline #4 from my post last week.
Just in case you can't quite read that headline or you wish it was 4 inches tall:
UPDATE: Chris Muir stopped by and left a comment - thankful for the small relief for us - from what he captured for us succinctly the other day:

Thanks, man. This is H-U-G-E.
Bloody shame I can't make the Marummy event tomorrow :-(. I hope somebody gets a videotape. This IS Marummy Country, where clean elections matter, now and the Seattle Times gets it: Enough's enough.
Speaking of newspapers, mine (Skagit Valley Herald) just wrote a total blasphemy of an editorial I intend to reply to. And use as toilet paper.
EMCEE: Thanks Josef. I'm working on making it to hear Mary tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.

Congratulations on the big links! You deserve it, man, the way you've been working on this story.
EMCEE: Thank you my friend. We have not yet begun to fight. Watch for interesting developments in the election contest proceedings. Great to hear from you.

Time also to look seriously at voter fraud in Wisconsin - which Kerry 'carried' by fewer than 12,000 votes. More needs to be written about the fact that the number of voters seems to keep growing in Milwaukee even though the population drops. Kerry's margins in Pennsylvania and Michigan were probably too large to be completely explained away by big-city hanky panky, but Philadelphia and Detroit warrant closer looks. Also, serious scrutiny needs to be focussed on massive double registration in Florida by New Yorkers in both the 2000 and 2004 elections. In neither case would the outcome of the elections be affected, but these blatant patterns of corruption need to be investigated and the entire electoral process tightened and made safe from fraud. It's safe to say that if the illegal double votes in Florida had been tossed out, the uproar about the closeness of the 2000 election would have never ensued.
IMHO electonic voting needs to be consigned to the dust bin - it's a fallible, poorly implemented high technology 'solution' for a low-tech problem. Paper ballots only, with voter performance measured, not 'intention' - whatever that may be. Some dimwit in Washington wrote in 'Christina Rossi' on his/her ballot. There was no such person - thus the vote should not have been counted. Likewise, in the San Diego mayoral race, a passle of people wrote in the name of the eventual winner, but did not check the little box that indicates a write-in ballot that must be hand counted. A big legal hassle ensued and eventually these invalid votes by incompetent voters were awarded to the 'intended' candidate. If a voter is too slovenly to read and follow the instructions, his ballot should be considered invalid. Period. After all, we voters are supposed to be adults who can follow instructions.
EMCEE: Right you are MGD, Take a look at the Wisconsin Fraud category on the site and look for more posts by Ron - a Racine area resident that is active in exposing the fraud in Wisconsin. We are not going to rest until we get election reform.

Now, that's a headline!
EMCEE: 'Tis! Thanks so much for stopping by. And I'm most belatedly putting you on my blog roll right now! Love your work!

Hello all: I have a suggestion for all the bloggers out there--let's stop referring to the MSM as the "mainstream" media. Isn't it about time we started calling them what they really are--the LWM, or Left Wing Media, since they are now nowhere near the mainstream!
Also, has anyone noticed the real tone of the Times article this morning on the voting felons? It is my contention that they are really advocating the right of felons to vote. Reading deeper into the story, they compare other states that felons are allowed to vote, and act downright disappointed that we don't follow suit! Leopards do not easily change their spots!
Keep up the good work.
EMCEE: Good point. I've been thinking today, as well, that maybe they have just chosen the least devastating of the possible issues to address - see my post from last week referenced above as well as the GOP court docs referenced there - to perhaps desensitize the public a bit. It has been shown for instance that some of those voting felons are sex offenders - which brings a bit of a sharper focus - what if that were a headline?

The media continue to do an excellent job uncovering voter fraud that benefits Democrats but just ignores voter fraud that benefits Republicans. The right-wing bias of the media continues to grow and is a threat to the very foundation of America. We need media outlets that are objective and report the news -- even when it hurts Republians. I realize the media are owned and controlled by Republicans, but the conservative bias is unacceptable.
EMCEE: Uh, we are from planet earth around here. Which one are you from?

Praise from Caesar (Power Line) is praise indeed!
You are battling for many states besides Washington, including my own, Michigan, where tens of thousands of "extra" votes are found in Detroit every time. Vote fraud in America always nets heavily to the benefit of Democrats. It is very unlikely Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000, if you adjust for fraud.
EMCEE: We must work toward national election reform. Thanks for your kind words.

"Hello all: I have a suggestion for all the bloggers out there--let's stop referring to the MSM as the "mainstream" media."
A pet peeve of mine for years. I've started calling them the LSM. Depending on who <facetious> faxes the mind-numbed robots their marching orders </facetious> , it stands for Liberal Spin Machine (Limbaugh) or Leftstream/Lamestream Media (me).
EMCEE: An excellent point that I will take to heart my friend.

Not much on my mind right now. I haven't been up to anything. Today was a complete loss. That's how it is. Not much exciting going on these days.
