Not sure how conservative, incumbent, and corporate stooge Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Walmart) winning her primary yesterday in a conservative Southern state that is pretty much a fiefdom of the Walton and Tyson families is a sign sullen voters are rejecting the DC establishment.
Maybe because she was opposed by the dirty hippies and unions and we all know they run the Democratic Party these days.
Guess it has to be spun that way since the alternative is that her winning is a victory for President Obama and there is no official narrative that allows that as part of its storyline.
I’m also not sure how two rich business types promising Republican voters nothing but the usual voodoo economics of tax cuts for the rich and cuts in services and aid for everybody else winning Republican primaries in California represent some blow to the establishment either.
Must have something to do with their being women which I’d have thought was far less relevant to their politics than the fact that they are both garden-variety corporate predators who made their fortunes in the good old-fashioned American way of the late 20th Century by running their companies into the ground and putting thousands and thousands of Americans out of work.
But that’s my fault for living outside the Beltway Narrative, which is like living outside of Hogwarts. We poor muggles can’t see the magic happening all around us. What looks to us like a bunch of vain, fussy, badly dressed eccentrics vying for the power to steal money legally from taxpayers and stirring up the rubes by lying to them is really an epic struggle between the forces of good and evil---good being those who pay for the advertising and those who buy what the ads sell and evil being those who think magic ought to be used to help people or at least shouldn’t be used to hurt them too much---with the Beltway Media types reporting on this narrative all in the employ of the Daily Prophet.
