Oo, Scary Black Panthers!

I never wrote about this stupid “controversy” because I remember reading something in my local paper that said it was no big deal. Which doesn’t surprise me, because the polling place where this alleged intimidation occurred was in a minority neighborhood, and I would be very surprised if anyone (other than patronage employees of the GOP-controlled parking authority) was breaking down the walls of the polling place to vote for John McCain.

But the corporate media, bowing to temper tantrums from the right, have pronounced this “news” anyway. Because we all know who really controls the media, and it ain’t us.
