Good catch from Ariana this week. Look at the four frontrunners for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012? Huckabee, Palin, Romney, Gingrich. What do they have in common?
Three of the four are employees of Fox News. All but Mitt. And it’s still early days – they may get him too!
So no matter who the GOP nominates to run against Obama, that person is likely to be an employee of Rupert Murdoch.
The wingnuts are screaming that Obama is taking orders from non-existent Kenyans, whereas the Republicans are taking orders from a very real Australian, who is so rich, so creepy, so weird, that he was parodied as an insane James Bond villain in Tomorrow Never Dies. Murdoch has a track record of killing competition, busting unions, interference in electoral politics, and making gigantic earnings without paying taxes, but here’s my favourite part: he skirted around U.S. laws decreeing that only U.S. citizens could own our TV stations, by securing a naturalization for himself. So the leader at the apex of this conservative movement to delegitimize Obama because he was allegedly born overseas and played some sort of sneaky game with his naturalization…played a sneaky game with his naturalization. All those people screeching that Obama’s a fake American take their marching orders from a fake American.
