“Please, Brer Fox, please don’t throw me into the briar patch.”

Read this article and see they were promoting Huntsman all along.
If huntsman couldn’t beat Pawlenty, Bachman etc, how formidable could he have been?

This is Cook County gone national into how the Soviet’s did things.
Yes, the Soviet’s had ‘elections’ too. They were theater pieces to create an illusion that the majority of Russians loved and supporters the Communist Party cabal and their anointed leaders.
Same damn thing here.
We saw our last free and honest national elections back in 2008.
