Halloween GOP tricks

With one week until the election, the level of Republican thuggishness continues to escalate. There's so much of it that it's almost impossible to track anything but the worst examples:

You can view GOP thugs manhandling activist Mike Stark on behalf of Sen. George Allen in Virginia. (courtesy Daily Kos)

Then there are the corporate thugs who have blacklisted Air America. (courtesy Media Matters.)

And then there is White House spokes-thug Tony Snow, who thinks it's 2004. News flash: John Kerry isn't on any ballot this year.

None of it is going to work. The country wants a change, and no amount of coordinated lying is going to change the outcome at this point.

But be prepared. The media hates a blowout, and will do everything in its power to make things seem closer than they are.
