Wall Of Oligarchy

By mike flugennockSunday - July 28th, 2013Categories: Party Animals, elections, media

Ever notice what a pain in the ass it is for dissident/third parties to get any media attention? They hardly ever get any media because it’s damn’ near impossible to get onto the ballot. They can’t get onto the ballot because it’s damn’ near impossible to raise any money. They can’t raise any money because it’s damn’ near impossible to get any media… well, I think you can see where this is headed.

Only The Party is able to raise the gobsmacking amounts of cash needed to get its views into the media, which means that Party propaganda and talking points are all over the TV like a bad rash. Third parties, independent and dissident candidates are pretty much locked out because the tepid liberal and raving rightist freak wings of The Party collude to rig the rules so that they’re the only ones who get to participate in the televised debates — which takes us back to what a pain in the ass it is for dissident/third parties to get any media attention.

Visitors called on GOP nominee Barack Romney to deal with the issue of the revolving door between Monsanto and the government, and called on Democratic incumbent Mitt Obama to keep his ‘08 campaign promises on GMO food labeling.

5 minutes, 40 seconds.

It’s What’s For Dinner!

By mike flugennockSunday - June 27th, 2010Categories: Party Animals, elections

Here’s another piece inspired by an article I saw at one of my all-time favorite Leftie blogs, Stop Me Before I Vote Again — specifically, this entry, containing an especially pithy comment by another one of my Leftie blogozone faves, The Drunken Pundit, who comments:

…With both parties fully in the grip of the industrial-financial-military complex of the American Empire they have to serve up shit sandwiches to everyone but they each need their own distinctive flavor of shit in order to differentiate themselves…

I honestly can’t think of anything else to add to this succinct and elegant analysis — at least not in written words — so, I’m not going to waste time blathering here this time, and just get on with the cartoon:
