Obama-Rama, Complete with Ding-a-lings

election08-709630.jpg

Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign holds a Debate Visibility Rally , today at 2 at the Kodak Theater, and then the debates. Patrick McDonald, in the LA Weekly, has a terrific piece on Jeremy Bernard and Rufus Gifford, Obama’s fundraisers/power brokers who are the New Gay paradigm.

And as an added attraction, we hear that The League of Conservation Voters and MoveOn.org, led by Laurie David, will be holding a protest/delivering a petition to Wolf Blitzer today at 2:30 PST at the Kodak theater, where Blitzer will moderate the debate tonight. They say that his Sunday morning show one of a few that very rarely mentions global warming.

If only we had a state-controlled media, Blitzer couldn’t get away with this. Fascist.

A.N.S.W.E.R. LA takes to the streets, or at least Hollywood Blvd. with an anti-war protest from 5 to 7, also at the Kodak. From their website:

The debate is being sponsored by CNN and the Los Angeles Times, the same corporate media outlets that continually refuse to cover the anti-war struggle. Bring signs, banners, noisemakers and make your anti-war voices heard as the debate is happening inside!

See above.
