Atlantic Mechanics: What Did the Atlantic Know and When Did It Know It?

"Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact."
George Eliot

Picture perfect. I work in the field of advertising, and the funk of left-wing miasma permeating the atmosphere is nearly suffocating. People in this business of commercial art know perfectly well what side they are on. The dreary, predictable uniformity of opinion and taste is so bad that I can even forecast the simple things that these people use to furnish the miserable spaces of their minds. Here, in LA, there is only one radio station playing in the offices, KCRW, the NPR affiliate. TV shows? If you want to talk about Jon Stewart, everyone can tell you what was on last night. Magazines? Free copies of the New Yorker from the media department, and sometimes Maxim if it's a guy in question. I have worked in many dozens of advertising agencies, and I have never, not once, seen a clipping or button or poster for a Republican campaign. I've seen lots of photoshops of Bush as Hitler, chimp, etc. I have seen very large posters of Che. And lately, especially in two agencies, I have seen Obastard's material everywhere. One tool of an art directing drone even has one of the Hope posters, a giant one, nearly six feet tall.

The point is that with a magazine as clearly political in nature as the Atlantic, the intersection of its ideology and its art department cannot help but produce a miscarriage like Greenberg. They knew precisely who they were hiring, and anyone, including Bennett, who says otherwise, is a flat, reeking liar.

"Why", the word they secretly ignore, really is the important word. As in, "Why do they feel the need to tinker with an election this way?"

Are their ideas so shallow, their cause so lost, that they may only hope to win by means of ceaseless shenanigans, cover manipulations, and slanted coverage?

Why, as in: "Why are they so selfish, that they place their own decision of who should be our next President, over the peoples right to choose?"

The final question, though is "Why are they so ignorant that they have failed to notice that the game has changed?"

Drudge Report, FOXNews, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, the "Great One" Mark Levin, and last but certainly not least: "Rick N' Bubba." Also, FreeRepublic, RedState, American Digest, & so on. The information gap has been filled.

They continue to proceed as if this election were being held in 1988, or 1992. Hello? Atlantic? Its the year 2008!

We are on to them. We are watching like a hawk. Americans have people guarding this Republic from propaganda with innocuous sounding brigades such as the "Pajama Patrol" but don't be fooled by the name. Those Mom's & Dads in pajama's have outed many a fool scheme.

Today, this brand of photographic and propaganda nonsense will sink Obama, not help him. It will also sink a few magazines and newspapers along the way. Subscriptions are falling.
