Why I Am Not a Kossack et al- The Chart on Iraq for Prez Candidates that is Missing a Couple

21 August 2007 at 11:09:04 AM

I read Huffington Post regularly and I steer clear of any posts that are about Kos or anyone that subscribes to that philosophy. And I know that Jerome Armstrong is a pal of his, and has also been a paid consultant for candidates. When I see a chart posted that compares Democratic candidates view on particular subjects, I expect to see at least the courtesy of including all the candidates. Not in the world of Jerome Armstrong. 

You know, I don't care who votes for whom, because luckily in what is called our democracy, we get to make those choices for ourselves and the choices don't have to be based on who gets the most campaign money or who gets talked about most on pundit shows. But it is intellectually dishonest to leave out candidates because, presumably, the presenter doesn't take them seriously. And it's offensive. It's as offensive as corporate media leaving off candidates in their list (which I've seen people complain about as a symptom of how corrupt corporate media is) and it is more than disrespectful to the idea of what some of us still think of as an ideal of the democratic process.

P.S. If you DO look at the chart, and remember that Kucinich is going to score quite high on that chart IF HE WAS INCLUDED, you'll also see that the Moneyed, Bought Candidates are for militarism. I won't and can't vote for warmongering Democrats, even if they are drooled over by those who don't seem to care about what their actual positions are.

Update. I see a blogger from Ohio wonders the same thing. Tell me again what the difference is between corporate media picking and choosing who the winners should be and so-called progressives who pick and choose who to highlight? Pah.
