In The News Today

Russian Prime Minster Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of orchestrating the conflict in Georgia to help our election tilt in favor of a certain candidate.

Before reading this today, I had heard from my dad that on some "liberal radio show", which he didn't mean in a derogitory manner by the way, that the conflict was being set up to help John McCain.

War matters typically help the Republican side. For some reason, people think they are safer when it comes to war matters by siding with a Republican. Of course, Iraq is a total mess for the George W. Bush and the Republican party, so why not start some shit in the European nation of Georgia to dredge up those classic Cold War fears about "THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING!" After all, they whole "THE TERRORISTS ARE COMING!" schtick was ran into the ground and then some, which is a key factor in why they lost control of Congress in '06. People will still denounce a Democratic member as "a communist" (even when they have no idea what that actually means), so if that insult works, painting the Russians in a terrifying light might also be valid to the lowest common denominator of "undecided" voters.

So am I saying we started this stuff? I'm not saying either way, but I do think that staged or otherwise, it will probably help McCain a lot more than Obama.
