I noticed today that Randi Rhodes is falling prey to the propaganda that the Bushists are funneling through Bob Woodward, that Bush has discovered the Tantalus Field. Incredibly, she was all anxious that there was going to be an ‘October Surprise’ and that the surprise would be (you know where this is going) the capture of Osama bin Laden.
Oh, how original. Oh, how completely different from the expected ‘October Surprises’ of 2002, 2004, and 2006. Why not just send everyone free samples of an anxiety-producing drug?
Don’t talk radio hosts have a responsibility to reduce paralyzing fear, rather than increase it? Shouldn’t they have made themselves immune to propaganda they’ve been dealing with for years and years?
I switched to Air America and Ron Kuby, who seems cool as a cucumber today.
