News vs. Reality

I saw and heard more than a dozen stories about the celebrated Obama rally in Oregon-- stories in which breathless infobabes repeated in shocked tones, "over 70 THOUSAND people!"

Obama, the messiah.

Now I find out it was a daylong party, featuring a FREE concert in the park by a popular band.

That explains about 50,000 of the 70,000. "The Decemberists" are the band, wildly popular in Oregon, and they begin their shows with THE SOVIET UNION NATIONAL ANTHEM.

Booming voices of a male choir celebrating Lenin's great deeds and the glorious future of the workers' motherland. You have to hear it to get the full impact, and you can at LGF. CJ has also provided the words, in English, if you feel like singing along.

Now, if you were the Obama-loving mainstream media, would you mention in a story that a band which plays the Soviet National Anthem opened for Barack Hussein Obama, who is currently reading "The Post-American World" by Fareed Zakaria?

This is an amazing meeting of the vibes here. Could things be any more clear about him?
