Watch out for falling anvils

From Mike Allen's Playbook:
Gov. Palin, to Fox's SEAN HANNITY on "Hannity & Colmes": "I think it's very close, and I think there is a lot of enthusiasm. ... John and I have both been in that underdog position over and over again. And you know what? I, in my career, happen to take on the good old boy network more than once. Having the scars to prove it. Being in the underdog position, it motivates us. Makes us work harder. And I believe that yes, the wisdom of the people will prevail on Nov. 4.”
I see. And what wise 'people' are those, Sarah? The people who will pull off the voter fraud for you and John McCain?
WashPost Howard Kurtz, online this a.m.: "'If the mainstream media are wrong about Obama and the voters pull a Truman, that is going to be the end of whatever shred of credibility they have left,' says Tobe Berkovitz, associate dean of Boston University's College of Communication."
Oh, so it will be the voters who 'pull a Truman,' and destroy the credibility of the corporate -- sorry, "mainstream" -- media? I see.

OK. So this is the narrative backstory, apparently, as it looks to be shaping up:

We voters are like Wile E. Coyote. We bitch and piss and moan and beg and plead and call and write and beg and plead and pray to be delivered from GWB & Friends before they do us in completely. But we're a little inept, and somebody has an amazing political machine and secret ability to hypnotize us. That would be John McCain. But we don't know this, see? So, naturally, although we have made people around the world believe that we will elect Obama, and maybe we even believe it ourselves, at the very last minute, in the privacy of the voting booth, we shall en masse, you know, 'pull a Truman' -- which is the same as making a huge, life-threatening mistake such as holding a giant magnet, for instance, which will attract all sorts of powerful crushing objects directly onto us, and in our wisdom, we will elect John McCain and Sarah Palin instead.

Mm hmm. So that's what we're gonna do. And then the corporate media will lose all credibility for not having predicted this. Up to now? Totally credible.


They're just going to try to steal this thing, and they're working on the narrative for the morning of 11/5/08.

So remember. Evidently, you just never know what we'll do, no matter how many times we tell you! Can't you see Charlie Gibson shaking his head sardonically at the irony of McCain winning this against all odds?!? Seriously. The paid shills might actually break a sweat selling this lie. Thank goodness for high def tv.
