      We’ve raised just under $6,000 so far, which means we’ve reached the first goal at $5,000 – five linked articles in a series about political concepts and how to actually use them.

Sunday: Bright, shiny objects

We have spent a loooot of time on the Jon Favreau picture in the last several days. Now, I’m not saying that a picture like that isn’t important, provided it wasn’t leaked intentionally.  But what if the reason we are spinning our wheels on this issue because we have been distracted to keep our eye off of something else?

Like electoral colleges, eligibility, transparency, master poker players, calling people’s bluff, international politics, legitimacy, Saul Alinsky,  Supreme Court cases, standing.

There’s something out there that they don’t want us to be seeing.  Something on the fringes of our periphery.  What is it?

It’s not over.  It will *never* be over.  Obama will have to be purer than the driven snow and more honorable  than Lincoln, more responsible than FDR, more competent and successful than Bill Clinton.

We know what really happened during the primaries.  We know that Hillary won and that the nomination was stolen from her by Obama and his collusion with the DNC.  We will never be appeased by Hillary getting the Secretary of State while the Pretender takes her place.

So, what are they up to?  Who are they threatening and intimidating now?  Step away from the photoshop and start looking around.

I smell a rat.
