Republicans: “First Amendment? We Were Just Kidding”
Here’s the GOP’s two-pronged approach to the 2012 election:
1. Raise trillions of dollars — most of it from anonymous donors — for a bunch of vicious slanderous TV attacks on Obama.
2. Prevent TV stations from airing the Democrats’ opposing commercials.
The National Republican Congressional Committee is demanding that a New Hampshire TV station yank a commercial they’ve been running. This ad is making the absolutely preposterous claim that the Republican budget plan will end Medicare. [gasp!]
The National Republican Congressional Committee has sent threatening letters to TV station WMUR and Comcast Boston, demanding that the add be pulled.
Republicans already have a gazillion dollar campaign fund — remember, corporations are people — and a 24/7/365 rightwing propaganda campaign on Fox News. Isn’t that enough???? On top of their huge advantage, they’re trying to censor opposing TV ads?!?
In the Republican version of the Bible, Goliath killed David with a slingshot.
