ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Gannon Sighting

Now, a few weeks ago I removed ARC's 2nd Law from the heading of this site. For those that don't recall, ARC's 2nd Law (in addition to ARC's 1st Law which remains above) was:

ARC's 2nd Law: As a Lefty online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Jeff "JD" GannonGuckertGosch approaches one.

We developed this law as a play on Godwin's Law, since (at the time) it seemed like the Lefty blogosphere was absolutely fixated on Jeff Gannon and almost all news was either attributed to a conspiracy led by Karl Rove, Jeff Gannon, or a combination of the two.

Well, a reference to Gannon appears in this DU post about the rally on Saturday.

ANSWER's idiocy plays into Right Wing talk radio today

Just saw a local news report on Saturday's rally. A local talk radio host was interviewed (it's a usual segment on this CBS station) and he just laughed about the rally, calling it the "Cindy Sheehan Save the Gay Whales" rally. He had watched the C-SPAN coverage of the rally and said the procession of speakers spewing on all their diffuse topics reminded him of a Saturday Night Live skit. (And many of us who saw it cringed at these speakers, even if we agreed with their general points.) He summed it all up by saying that this was not America, that none of the people at the rally was anyone he would recognize, and that the rally was pretty much laughable.

Now, RW talk radio would make fun of the rally anyway. But, had there been ONE consistent message with compelling speakers, one after another, televised, it would have been harder for the neocon media to dismiss it. Talk radio hosts would still have ignored the vast numbers of people, the fact that so many of the people were first time attendees, etc but they could not have denied that there was a singular message.

Thanks to ANSWER, the RW media can laugh at the rally and tell the general public that it didn't miss much.

ANSWER is a liability--no question.
1. And we can laugh right back at them
he just laughed about the rally, calling it the "Cindy Sheehan Save the Gay Whales" rally.

Now, now ... Jeff Gannon has already been saved!

It's interesting to note that Nikki Stone (who seems to be make a reasonable post) is totally slammed by her "comrades" at DU.

If this continues, I may have to reinstate the Gannon law at the top of this site.
