HERE WE GO AGAIN. THIS IS NOT an ugly rumor concocted by the vast right-wing conspiracy. But grab hold of your coffee mug, folks. The harsh reality of nasty political campaigning is shifting into high gear. A team of Obama-supporting prosecutors and sheriffs in Missouri is preparing to pursue legal challenges to any presidential campaign ads deemed to be false or misleading. This is a real story folks. Obama thugs from the Show Me State are out for blood and sinew in this no-holds barred election cycle.

How silly does this "Truth Squad" hijinx sound to the average (non-evangelical) American ear? In Missouri, political punditry which does not meet the emerging Obama "audacity of power" critera for truthiness is now legal fodder for his Chicago-machine apparachiks. We've seen this strong-armed tactic before, my friends—here and here.

Fancy this broadcast from the NBC affiliate in St.Louis MO detailing an in-your-face fascist strategy which is richly laughable given the ridiculous nature of American political campaign packaging if it weren't so damned frightening.

KMOV-TV in St. Louis reports District Attorney Robert McCulloch, a past president of the National District Attorneys Association, saying that where the ads could be attributed to an opponent's campaign itself, or even another organization they will act. "If they're not going to tell the truth, somebody's got to step up and say, 'That's not the truth. This is the truth.'"

Free speech? Under the bus. Truth? Don't ask me. Ask Obama!

I've said it before, and have been called a racist and a fearmonger for my troubles, but surely this can only be a hint of things to come as the so-called politically correct crowd ushers The Chosen One into office and flicks its wrecking ball upon us to demolish the American democratic ship of state to make way for its Brave New World Order. This may only be backwater Saint Louis to some of you comfortably numb types, but make no mistake about it. This is only the tip of the iceberg. The fix is in everywhere we care to look. Just ask a PUMA near you for details. Be scared. Be very scared. Then get over it—compose yourself, empower your principles, and make sure you don't neglect to vote this Fuhrer-in-waiting off the national scene forever before he gets a chance to fertilize his roots...

His lock-step followers are not your friends, either. But this ironic bit of advice seems most a propos under these conditions—forgive them, fair America, for they know not what they do. We would be remiss if we didn't also offer up what the Chinese poet once grinned, "May you live in interesting times."

Here's a corraborative read on the story.
