Missin' the Story

If you've been relying on the media to provide the full story of the current presidential campaign, well, not yet.

Take a trip up to Alaska via Mudflats this morning, and you'll learn about the story the McCainstream media, the oh-so-important networks, have totally missed so far. Or don't want you to know...

Last week, there was sure 'nuff, a welcome home rally for Sarah Palin.

There was also an "Alaska Women Reject Palin" rally:

Never, have I seen anything like it in my 17 and a half years living in Anchorage. The organizers had someone walk the rally with a counter, and they clicked off well over 1400 people (not including the 90 counter-demonstrators). This was the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state. I was absolutely stunned. The second most amazing thing is how many people honked and gave the thumbs up as they drove by. And even those that didn’t honk looked wide-eyed and awe-struck at the huge crowd that was growing by the minute. This just doesn’t happen here.
The groundswell is real. The rejection of the McSame ol' Same ol' Palin-crony politics as usual is real. Whether the media get around to tellin' you or not.

On November 4, join your fellow Americans and vote for real change. Meanwhile, reach out to your fellow Americans and say, this year, no matter what your party or gender or voting history, go with reality, not spin, not smear. And vote.
