The way to crush the middle class is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. – Vladimir Lenin

A Picture is Worth A Chapter in Media and Public Manipulation

Terry Ann has a great blog post today showing how a political outfit sends messages and does not even have to voice them.

Do you see all of the women placed behind Obama? Obama has lost 20 points in the women’s vote to McCain since Sarah Palin joined the ticket partially because of the attempts to belittle her and smear.  Obama is trying to get women the women’s vote so Even the placing of people in a crowd sends a political message.

It reminds me of when Obama Campaign asked those 3 muslim women to remove their headscarf for the shot. I am not critiquing Obama, it is just a learnable moment of what all politicians do.
