There's Going To Be Violence
October 12th is the next of Mayor Rocky Anderson's Freedom Forums. This one is "Freedom to Criticize the Government" so of course it's about himself heroically "indicting the Bush administration" but it's NOT about the local media criticizing him (the government) because as he enlightened us in his press release, the media is actually "nothing more than a bulletin board for dishonest government propaganda". But the local media refuses be a bulletin board for HIS government, which is of course why he thinks they're like the Taliban who used media as a bulletin board for propaganda. But the local media refuses to be the Mayor's bulletin board which is why they are like the Taliban. Mayor Anderson is truly one of the great intellectual pretzel makers of our time. According to the release, panelists include Ken Bingham of Oblogatory Andecdotes and Paul Mero of The Sutherland Institute, so I'd take along a helmet if I were you.
