This appeared on the screen Friday on KPHO in Phoenix, Arizona:


It’s over… don’t bother to go to the polls. And over 30 million of Obama’s total votes came from just Chicago.

I wonder who got the other 17 percent of the vote?

    "I wonder who got the other 17 percent of the vote?"

    Beats me. I'm still trying to figure out who got the other 99.999% of Joe Biden's allotment of brains.

    That station must have been some of the people that Jimmy Kimble asked who won the last debate 4 hours before it aired and answered that Obama did without a doubt.

    John Anderson got it… ;)

    …and the other .001% of Joey's brain is busy running his heart, helping him do breast cancer squats, making stuff up…

    That`s just the Keynesian "pump priming". By the time the election has passed, the votes have been counted, recalls are demanded and lost votes have been found in multiple car trunks, Obama will have 483, 927,276 votes to Romney`s 39,214,314.

    Side note: the man is wearing a Fu Man Chew; the Chinese dog was just doing his part and gets to wear the Cone of Shame for his trouble !

    And I am sure Big Bird and all his Sesame Street pals will have voted early and often.

  7. backwoodsconsr on October 22nd, 2012 2:09 pm

    Thanks for the clarification. I wouldn't want to get it confused with a Many Man Smoke.

    Ha; took me a minute ! ;-)

    Naw, that`s a city guy; `baccer drool would really stand out against that white, but that red tie just might be wide enough to keep it off his shirt !

    Too funny! Was one of the options; Da' Bears!?

    Didn't that guy play the barber in one of Clint's spaghetti westerns? This.Is.It. Let this be the LAST time we have all the buffoonery w/ the damned early voting and Absentee Ballots On Demand.

    Totally gotten out of hand. We're treating it as casually as "Would you like $3 of your Tax Refund to go to the President's Re-election campaign?" on your 1040 Form. You know, even though it's like THREE years away!

    Why would any production/studio manager have this or any other campaign graphic already pre-loaded..?

    Was this supposed to have some sort of subliminal effect on voters? Have there been sightings of this or similar pop-up graphics spotted by other viewers in… uh SWING states maybe?

    Of course it's all just another 'coincidence' in Obamaland. Natch the 'glitch' would never show a GOP candidate leading? Seriously; his campaign needs to get a stern warning on this. The power of the media cannot go unchecked. At some point this should even actually DISQUALIFY Him.

  11. Truesoldier__ on October 22nd, 2012 4:25 pm

    Agreed. If it is too much trouble to go to the polls to vote then perhaps you shouldn't be voting as it is too much trouble for those same people to pay attention.

    Just like it always gets me how many renters will vote for a levy because it raises property taxes and won't affect them seeing as they don't own property. Then complain when their rent goes up.

  12. Marshall_Will on October 22nd, 2012 4:31 pm

    Here's yet another example of a complicit LSM all together too willing to allow for strategic 'leaks' that allow O'Drama to suck the life out of the news cycle w/ claims like; "Can 'I' help it if people love me?"

    KeyRHIST I hate this fricken' sleazeball. The upside though is this shows they've crossed over from simply desperate into plain foolhardy.

  13. Truesoldier__ on October 22nd, 2012 4:32 pm

    Considering that he has been caught accepting illegal foreign donations again; yet the media is just yawning about it I doubt we will see any consequences other than the American public voting against this moron.

    If the graphic had been in favor of the GOP you know the calls of proof of voter fraud would be in full swing by now.

  14. Truesoldier__ on October 22nd, 2012 4:33 pm

    O/T..So what do you all think of Trump claiming that he is going to drop an "October Surprise" bombshell on Obama on Wed? Do you think he actually has something or is it just more Trump hype?

  15. Marshall_Will on October 22nd, 2012 4:46 pm

    Precisely why we frame 'coincidence' right? Wish Doug would weigh in when he has time but I assumed these spot graphix were generated *as* election results are coming in. Not pre-made like Round Cards in a boxing match?

    The station needs to be pressed for an explanation. And the fact this took place during the Peep's Court, it tells what KIND of voter they're attempting to influence. Just shameless.

  16. Marshall_Will on October 22nd, 2012 4:50 pm

    First I've heard. There's times when I can get behind what DT says but the longer I've been an MM reader, the less impressed w/ the guy I've become. More sucking the life out of the news cycle and his development "public/private partnerships" all the while claiming to be an advocate for the 'private' sector!

    If he's GOT something, it has to be devastating. Otherwise, yawn.

  17. Truesoldier__ on October 22nd, 2012 4:54 pm

    Here is what is being reported (which really isn't much)

    I've been looking to see if their is a premiere of the apprentice or some other Trump related show coming upto see if this is just a publicity stunt on his part, but haven't found anything as of yet.

  18. Dexter_Alarius on October 22nd, 2012 5:41 pm

    Hopefully it's the Hawaii Director of Health confessing that she has been complicit in the forgery of Oblamer's BC, and covering for the fact that they don't have one for him.

  19. Truesoldier__ on October 22nd, 2012 6:06 pm

    Or they uncovered an Obama "Jihad" video.

  20. backwoodsconsr on October 22nd, 2012 6:12 pm

    I think it's just Trump drawing attention to himself. If he actually had anything good we'd have known about it already.

  21. Granny55 on October 22nd, 2012 8:47 pm

    I saw this earlier and I am like WTF???? How much in the tank can a media outlet go??? This is truly disgusting…… just when you think they cannot sink any lower into the dung heap.

  22. Granny55 on October 22nd, 2012 8:50 pm

    This is what is wrong with politics – if you have something reveal it or shut up. I hate all this crap about October surprises. Supposedly, Gloria Alrede is going to drop a bombshell about a Romney affair/abortion story too. This is just the worst part of politics. It discourages good people from serving.

  23. Granny55 on October 22nd, 2012 8:53 pm

    Hopefully that is all it is – for attention. But it could backfire if it is something cheesy or half witted that cannot be proven. Could turn off Romney voters or fence sitters. Don't like it one bit. Liberals pull this crap all the time. It should be beneath us as conservatives. I know you have to fight back but sometimes sensationalism can backfire on us – the liberal press has proven than time and again. The MSM can take Trump's bombshell and run with it and completely turn this around. Beware of wolves in sheeps clothing!!!!!

  24. Marshall_Will on October 22nd, 2012 9:05 pm


    So true. We have F & F, Gunwalker, Solyndra to the 3rd Power and countless other scandals. Dredging up something at this late stage would likely, as you imply, only serve to aggravate and distract voters.

    As MM has pointed out many times, Trump's no conservative. I'm still waiting for John Cusack's "more to follow!" tweet. That was 4 mos. ago…
