How Obama Got Elected

John Ziegler has it all figured out, and inasmuch as he completely justifies everything I've written on this topic, he is obviously brilliant. Hell, he'd be brilliant anyway, because he sets out to demonstrate that...

...millions of Americans were shocked that a man of Barack Obama's limited experience, extreme liberal positions and radical political alliances could be elected President of the United States. For many of these Americans, the explanation was rather simple... the news media, completely enamored with Obama, simply refused to do their job.

Ziegler both conducted an admittedly-non-scientific exit poll on Election Day, as well as commissioned a more scientific Zogby poll to reinforce his exit poll. All this for a documentary in progress, on the role of the mainstream media in the 2008 election. That documentary is entitled Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected. You can watch him discuss it on Fox News Channel's Hannity and Colmes (complete with Colmes embarrassing himself for our continued viewing pleasure), as well as visit the website, HowObamaGotElected.com.

Be sure not to miss that quote from George Washington about the importance of "enlightened... public opinion." He just HAS to be turning over in his grave.
