Why Not? Hitler and Stalin used it to perfection ...
But the only remedy is this: every time Obama lies, McCain--and the blogosphere--have to immediately correct it. Loudly and often.
MIXED MESSAGES CONTINUE:
This afternoon Obama says McCain "wants to continue this war in Iraq maybe for another 100 years," and his traveling press secretary says "John McCain is not a warmonger and should not be described as such."
Obama really needs to quit with that "continue this war for 100 years" line. He's been busted repeatedly on it. Is that a new kind of politics -- to keep repeating a falsehood even after it's been exposed?
It becomes a war of attrition, who will blink first. Rest assured, it won't be me and others like me; but will the blogs be enough to counter the mild McCain responses and big media's muted supression of the story? I doubt it, but I guess we'll see.
Barack is counting on the Hitler/Stalin methodology to prevail. Napoleon the Pig used it to perfection in literature (of course that was an allegory about Stalin). Come to think of it, Barack's politics pretty much match up well of the ideology of Napoleon (and Stalin) too.
