I'm a big fan of Countdown with Keith Olberman. One of the sponsors of his show is "the Nation", a self proclaimed liberally biased magazine. In it's TV spot, it claims that it "peels away layers of obfuscation."

In this screen capture, the word "peels" is super imposed over Bush, Cheney, and former speaker Denny Hassert. I'm sure the good people of the Nation don't know that if the word is subconsciously read backwards it says "sleep". In other words, don't question the fake left right paradigm, fight the evil republicans. Don't question why there are only two parties, vote democratic to end the war.

What bothers me is that the dems have had every opportunity to end the war by way of the purse and have refused to do so. They use the argument by implying (not really saying, because that would expose the spin) that cutting off funding would leave the troops in place with no ammo, which is utterly ridiculous.

Sleep my friends, sleep long and well.

Really great catch! And I haven't had my usual amount of Garden-frolicking time lately, so I'm just now catching up on the last few posts. Wonderful writing (as always Ed!), and I am happy that you're still with us after the hurricane! Nice pic :) Cheers!

Thanks Jenn. I called it a hurricane because I didn't know what else to call it. It was the strangest weather I had ever seen, no tornado, no rain, only wind.
