headline has nothing to do with article.
Also, book sales- how do they work?

Headline is why we can't have nice things.

its only going to get worse. the Republicans are desperate to unseat Obama. I think deep down they know they're going to lose...but they can't admit it, not even to themselves. so lock in and prepare for a rocky ride this year!

I don't think so. the Democrats know they've got the advantage. the GOP tho...they KNOW they're backing a losing horse. Romney is vulnerable on his record, not to mention his debate skills are lacking, especially when compared to Obama. the guy looks and talks like a plank of wood!

Democrats know they have the advantage, but they don't have the patience to just sit back and watch the republicans flail. I'm content to just laugh at crazy shiat like this headline or whatever stupid conspiracy theory rightwing blogs come up with, but it seems like half the dems on this site lose their goddamn minds every time that shiat pops up.

I disagree. the Obama team hasn't even really started campaigning yet...and with a few well placed ads, Romney took a gut punch over Bain and now he's flubbing his record as governor. Obama is keeping the Republicans on the ropes and he's not even in the fight yet.

And the Obama people know that. They can't afford to sit back and let the other side attack, hence the strategy.

You don't bring civility to a derp fight.

Obama never had a job.

Except he was a lawyer, an author and a law professor He was also a state Senator and a US Senator.

But none of those count, because Obama is black.

No one is mad at the internet, bub, people are fed up with the outright lies being perpetrated as news by the right. They are undermining the very idea of journalistic integrity, and yes, it pisses me off.

People are angry at the deceitful news, not the internet. They would be just as angry seeing it on TV or in the paper. The internet has nothing to do with it. I'm not sure what other point you have.

ok, lets back up here a moment. I said I didn't understand what the f*ck you were talking about and asked for clarification. You dodged the issue.

All I said was both sides of the aisle are acting nuts and I got dogpiled for it and then I was accused of being an alt.

Weaver95: the GOP are gonna go full retard no matter what though.


This is besides the point. It's clear they will go full retard regardless of what happens; the pivotal point is that, if they are allowed to go full retard unchecked then their idiotic spew will dominate the airwaves as unanswered and unrefuted and they will claim legitimacy. We saw it in 2010, we saw it in 2004. Swift boating.

Not that I agree with James!, in fact I don't know what the hell he's playing at because this seems out of character from what I remember reading over time - could be that he's decided to play the troll today, or for a while. I don't think the FarkLibs (you have to love how the aptly-labeled 'Fark Independents' decided the I'm rubber you're glue defense was somehow valid here, que sera sera) necessarily go apeshiat over this stuff or lose their minds, necessarily. Outrage, perhaps - because a reasonable-minded and informed populace tends to take umbrage over patently false or misleading claims and blatant propaganda masquerading as news, and the airing of that grievance is considered 'losing their minds'...but I guess maybe it's because we're sick of being lied to, and sick of seeing our countrymen be lied to and misled?

If that's considered losing my mind, then I plan on never finding it. I'm sick of the lies. If the partisan divide in this country were based in reality, maybe it would be different. If it were an ideological split based on differing opinions about how to properly resurrect a flailing economy, and social issues that people truly believe differently about, methods of governance, and all that. But it's not. Instead it's all birth certificate, secret muslim, socialism, they're trying to take your guns and religion, failed economic revival (partially true, but only because GOP is actively trying to quash the recover at every given turn, thus factually inaccurate)...democrats want to kill your children so we the brave defenders of freedom are going to pass restrictive and pointless laws so you are free to do what we tell you to.

Team politics can die in goddamn hell. I wish they would leave (R) and (D) off the goddamn ballots so people would have to know who they are voting for.
